President’s Day has been very busy at the store. Having no time to go out and get lunch, I ordered in. Forty-five minutes later, my phone rings. “Hi. Did you order Chinese food?”
Guy: “I’m around the corner.”
Me: “I can’t leave the store.”
Guy: “I can’t come in. Very busy.”
Me: “I ordered food delivered because the store is busy, and I can’t leave the store.”
Guy: “I, too, very busy.”
Me: “Yes, but my job is to be in one place so people can buy things from me, your job is to bring people things.”
Guy: “Can’t —”
Me: “I don’t have time to discuss this. Please just bring me the food I ordered.”
He ended up driving up to the front of the store and I politely asked the regular customer who was looking for Vertigo books not to steal anything while I ran to the front door and grabbed my food.
It was not what I ordered. But I ate it.
