I add extra pickles to EVERYTHING….

I say “extra… EXtra… EXTRA pickles please!!!!”

I never really take anything off though.

I hate to be a nuisance so I usually order things as is then pick things off (onions, etc.). My one exception is Starbucks. I order my chai latte with nonfat or soy milk.

I get weird looks every time (except from Fiance and my family who know me oh so well) but I order every hamburger with ketchup, mustard, pickles, & mayo ONLY. I even have to say it in that order lol. It bothers me if someone says mustard, pickles, mayo, ketchup. I’m weird, aren’t I? yeah, I knew it. The only exception is a mushroom swiss burger. That I just get with the mushrooms, onions, and swiss. 

edit: I’m also known to use words like “ridiculous” in describing toppings. Like “I would like a ridiculous amount of pickles on that sub please.” and “I just want an ungodly amount of sour cream on my burrito”–at Chipotle of course ๐Ÿ˜›

Always NO MAYO. I don’t hate mayo, but it’s a collassal waste of calories, IMO.

I ALWAYS change what I order.  Why not? ๐Ÿ™‚  I don’t like condiments on my burgers (but I do like lettuce, tomato, onion) or hot dogs.  I always am like “can I take off X and add Y?”  Fast food places I always have to say without mayo.

I have tons of special requests, kind of like Meg Ryan in When Harry Met Sally. lol  But I’m always really nice and tip well so servers don’t get pissed at me. 

And I also always ask for fries right out of the fryer at McDonald’s, otherwise they’re not as good.  And I’m willing to wait. Best fast-food fries ever.  Yum:)

@Running Elley: I’ve heard that we’re a lot more in to customization and such out here in California. I worked at a Chick-fil-A and all the people who came from stores in other states talked about how weird it was to see so many people out here ordering “extra tomato” “no butter” “protien style” etc etc.

That said, yes, I love customization. Most of my favorite things are typically paired with my least favorite things (mushrooms and olives namely), so I love being able to trade the mushrooms for spinach in an omelette or whatnot. There are lines of restaurants popping up that are all about customizing your own food – there’s a place here called Stacked where you order on an ipad and literally “stack” each ingredient of your chosing on to your order.

@Running Elley: I ALWAYS ask for onions. On like, everything I eat. And I can’t stand pickles or celery. But when I go out, I usually try to order things as is. If I don’t like it as much, then I decide to do without. (or add on)

I HATE making special requests.  I was a vegan for 6 years when I was younger and the main reason I stopped wasn’t that I missed meat or cheese but that I hated having to make special requests when I went out.  My mother is like the worst special request offender and it drives me nuts, so eventually I was just like “screw it, I’ll eat some meat.”

I still make a few.  I’ll often get things without dairy because I’m lactose intolerant or with the sauce on the side if it’s a sauce I’m not sure I’ll like (there’s an inexpensive sushi place we go to with really gross sauces but good fish so I ALWAYS have to do sauce on the side there).  No mayo or ketchup (ew ew ew), and I hate fries so I’ll always try to sub in a salad.  But I try to keep it to a minimum because I figure the more special requests, the more chances for something to get screwed up (or someone to get fed up with me for being difficult and screw things up on purpose).

I don’t like lettuce, tomato, mayo, mustard, etc. on anything, ever. 

Tofu cut up small and meat always well done.
