Just Mustard

Tonight I picked us up some Subway sandwiches and ordered myself a Veggie delite. I haven't had one of those for awhile. John asked me if I just got mustard again. Very funny Johnny. It actually is a funny story.

I haven't been a vegetarian for three or four years now but I was one for almost four years. The first time I went to Subway as a vegetarian I made the mistake of going through the drive thru instead of going in.

I told the lady at the drive thru that I wanted a veggie delight. Here's the rest of our conversation:

Lady: What would you like on it?

Me: Mustard.

Lady: Just mustard?

Me: Yes.

I drive up to the window and there's a second lady with the one who took my order.

Second lady: You just want mustard on your sandwich?

Me: Yes.

Second lady: Just mustard? Nothing else?

Me: Yes....just mustard.

Second lady: Ok.

While the sandwich artists left the window to get our order John and I had our own conversation.

John: I think you're going to get a mustard sandwich.

Me: What? No. I ordered a veggie delite. There's going to be veggies on it.

John: I don't think so.

We got our sandwiches and as we were driving off John opened the wrapper of my mustard sandwich, no veggies. I was too embarrassed to go back.

Here's my defense: If I ordered a turkey sandwich I wouldn't have to specify that I wanted turkey on it when asked, "What would you like on your sandwich?"

Also, the sandwich artists could have said, "So you don't want any veggies?" I would then have known that on my veggie delite I needed to specify exactly which vegetables I wanted.

To answer John's question from before, tonight I actually had vegetables on my sandwich. Mustard was able to be a condiment and not the main ingredient.

That is hilarious. I agree with you. The way you stated it you should have gotten veggies.

I once ordered a "plain" hamburger for Michael at McDonalds because I didn't see just normal hamburgers on the menu. I didn't want something double or big macish. We got a bun with a burger. At least we got the burger.

I still owe you a phone call.

Last night when you told me you were going to Subway - this story came to mind. I was hoping you didn't end up with another mustard sandwich! :)
