I spend part of the first half hour of my day going through e-mails, correspondence and so forth.
I stop at the cafeteria and order, verbatim:
what can I get you?
---Hotcakes and two sausage, please
---a two-item omelet, then. please.
what are the items you want in them?
---sausage and provolone cheese
Being that, I chatted up with one of the previous cashiers that I've dealt with for the past few years, and a couple minutes later, voila! Breakfast.
I walk back to the register, open the container....
two sausage, an overdone omelet with american cheese.
the cashier (an all new person), rang up sausage, sausage, 1 item omelet.
---it should be about $4.50 + tax. ($4.87 with tax, at 8.25%)
I explained what's wrong with the order, and am told that since it WASN'T all together as it should....I pay the price for two sausage and a one-item omelet.
They'd make me a new one (which means open the container and adjust it to correct) and charge me correctly if I got the new one. What'd happen with this omelet? Isn't a waste of time since I'm just going to eat it like it is?
The prices at the cafeteria are supposed to be break-even, though I think pulling a great profit every day, there.
I guess I'll have to be late and just make breakfast at home if I oversleep again.
