A minor bad service...

About once a week, I'll drop by the university cafeteria and get a breakfast wrap. Almost all of the employees know me because I was there on a regular basis last year. This year, I've been getting the same thing, which is a breakfast wrap with only egg and cheese on whole wheat. (Their breakfast wraps come with egg, cheese, salsa and homefries on it, on white, but the homefry/salsa/cheese combination makes me gag). It's really not that complicated!

So how come half of the time that I order it, it comes on white.

Nothing major... I'll eat white... but I'm a health freak, so I prefer it on whole wheat :P

Also, a little rant.

I'm a vegetarian. I've heard horror stories about people accidently eating meat or going back to eating meat and getting very ill from it. One time, the university cafeteria cooked my eggs in bacon fat (in my last mouthful, I found a huge chunk of bacon) and it made my stomach sore all evening.

If you have an allergy and are eating out, it's a good idea to inform the staff so that they go the extra step to make sure that the product doesn't come in contact with your food. But do I really have to start informing them that I'm vegetarian? When I order something meatless, I expect there to be no meat in it.

My friend and I were chowing down on veggie nachos the other day, and at the bottom of the salsa, there was a ball of bacon. I didn't see it, so I ended up eating it. The waitress came by just as I was putting the chip in my mouth. I spit it out in my napkin and apologized to my friend and the waitress. My friend was giving me funny looks so I told her that there was a hunk of bacon in the salsa. Waitress: "Oh, you're a vegetarian?" "Yes..." "I have friends who are vegetarian." and she walks away... no apology or anything.
