Sub of the . . .
So . . . . awkward moment yet again. All I could think was, "Seriously?". Gabby and I met for lunch today and Subway seemed to be calling his name so there we went. If there is one thing that I hate, it's the smell of Subway and the way it sinks it's way into every fiber of your being. Don't get me wrong, I like the sandwiches but wow - I hate that smell. I guess it runs in the family because Marcos won't even step foot in a Subway - he is a tad neurotic. Anyway, Gabby and I were in line and talking about something and suddenly it was my turn. Me being the cheapo that I am recently, looked at the Sub-of-the-day list and went for the 'ol Turkey and Ham and told the nice lady, "The Sub of the Day, please". I went back to talking to Gabby and then after it was his turn I looked down and wondered where they had taken my sandwich because it wasn't there. I was getting all high and mighty thinking how annoyed I was because I had told her I didn't want it toasted, and obviously that would be the only place it would be. So, the wonderfully blank faced man that was to put on the veggies grabbed this gross looking meatball sub (that I had assumed the whole time belonged to the lady in front of me:) and said," You had the meatball?" - - - - well, um -no. I then became all arrogant me and said, "Umm, no - I had the Sub-of-the-day!" Well, seriously, all I got from him was a crazy blank stare as the girl cutting the bread said, "Yeah - the SUB-of-the-day is the meatball" - and as she said that Gabby scanned the list and sure enough I had thought I was ordering Mondays - -oopsie. Hahahaha, we started to laugh but the creepy veggie man kept his blank stare the whole time, not saying a word as the girl asked if I wanted it changed but being as it was my mistake I couldn't take her up on it. It was such an awkward moment and one that will never happen again because - - -meatball sub=gross. I will never again play the martyr and take the sandwich - I will always trade. I guess that is what awkwardness taught me today - take the offer, just take the offer whatever it is.
