We’re prepared

I don’t have very many pet peeves. I consider myself an easy-going guy. I almost always prefer peace over conflict. However, there are some strangely specific things that get me wound up. Two of them have to do with ordering food at a restaurant. When it comes to sandwiches in general but burgers in particular, I don’t ask for much in terms of how I order it. I am certainly not one of those people that stands there for way too long trying to explain a very complicated order to a cashier. Sometimes however, I need to be specific about how I want that burger, because if I am not, far too often I get a sloppy mess. Maybe it’s my town, but it does not seem to matter what fast food joint I go to, a burger is typically thrown at me, drowning in a gallon of condiments with the bun fused to the cheese in a slippery, sloppy mess! The other thing that bothers me at a restaurant is when I decide to sit down, only to discover that the dining hall is freezing cold. Typically, wait staff will see you to a specific booth or table that is unoccupied without your input, but all too often the ones I get are directly under in air vent. I don’t want to have to scarf down my food as fast as possible simply because if I don’t, the air conditioning will make it cold within a few minutes. Not only does my food get cold from the air conditioning in record time, but I’m also sitting there shivering! Forget that!
