Seven Simple Words......

Gigi and I were looking for a new RV today. We decided to stop by Firehouse Subs for lunch. I love their Steamer Combo.

So I walked up to the counter and said, “I’ll have two medium Steamer Combos to go”.

Those seven words should have answered any question this young woman could think of in the realm of my order.

“Do you want white or wheat?” she asked?

“White”, I said.

The steamer combo by definition and menu is plain old white, ordinary, missionary style, white sub roll bread. Any other bread would bastardize the sandwich and be a complete breech pf protocol.

“You want a medium or large?” she asked.

“Medium”, I said.

She didn’t catch a damn word I said earlier.

“Is that all?” she asked in a clever close.

“That’s a combo, right?” I asked.

“Oh! You wanted a combo?” she asked.

“Yes”, I said.

Now the next sentence I would have bet the farm on.

“Is that for here or to go?” she asked.

“To go”, I sighed.

Unfortunately, she was way out of here league.

She didn't asked me if a I wanted a pickle. Amazing.

LOL - I just took a drink of water as I was reading your menu definition of the bread. MISSIONARY STYLE? LOL - there I go again, now I have water running down my chin!
Too funny, thanks for the laugh, you made me feel better!
