Does anyone else out there get really angry when you order something at a restaurant, and it comes with junk on it that the menu didn’t say??? For example, I HATE onions, and I am always furious when I order a sandwich or a salad somewhere and it comes with onions on it when the menu didn’t list that it had onions on it!! For example, today, I ate at Panera and ordered what the menu described as a “Steak and White Cheddar Panini on White Ciabatta”, and it came with horseradish and onions on it. I was FURIOUS. My fiance says that it’s my fault because I didn’t ask what came on it, and I should know by now to always just say “no onions” whether it says it or not.
On this note, I asked him if he specified that he didn’t want spit on his sandwich, and that if someone spit on his sandwich, it’s ok because he didn’t ask for no spit or if it came with spit on it.

Anything with mayo. I cannot have mayo, anywhere, or anything. Like you, I pretty much say “no mayo” whether I know it has it or not. Better safe than sorry.

I work as a waiter and we’re supposed to ask customers their preference if they order something and it doesn’t have all the ingredients listed. Trust me–I know that menu top to bottom down to the salt and pepper.
And the specials? Last night one included peas. It didn’t say on the board that there were peas. Did ANYONE want the peas. Uh…no.

I hate when I order a burger at a restaurant, and it comes with cheese. I always ask for no cheese yet it always without fail ends up on my burger. Yes restaurants, there are people in the world who don’t want cheese on the burger!

Oh em gee, I hate cilantro with the intensity of a thousand burning suns. And it’s rarely mentioned. People think it’s a harmless little garnish like parsley… no way jose. It absolutely ruins meals for me sometimes.

@FutureMrsBPB: Onions are the worst. I hate everything about them. Panera won’t take them off for you beforehand. I had a lunch date with my dad at panera–unknowingly bit into a sandwhich that had onions and my mouth tasted like it all day–well the same day was my first date with Fiance, we kissed that night and luckily he didn’t mind the awful scent of onions lingering on me. Gross.

MUSTARD is my other one!! If it doesn’t say mustard, there had better not be mustard on my sandwich.
I can relate!! Like today, yes, I picked the onions off of my sandwich, but it still TASTED like onions. Totally killed it for me.
I’m glad that you ask! And that’s too funny about the peas haha!

OH I know!! I asked for a panini or something without onions once, and they said it’s all mixed up beforehand and they can’t make it without the onions. I wanted to scream. My fiance is probably right that I need to always say no onions, but it’s just frustrating! If it doesn’t say onions, why do I have to ask for no onions?

We have a pre-shift meeting whenever new specials come out, and our chef explains them down to the last ingredient. So it was good to know about the peas!
THEN? We take all five platefuls (WHOLE SERVINGS) including the pizza of the day into the office, and we munch on them till they’re gone. YUM.
