Today for lunch my good friend Rena, that I work with, wanted Chinese No. 1, and asked if I wanted anything. Like yesterday, nothing sounded very good, but I thought some vegetable Lo Mein might hit the spot. She volunteered to go pick it up, since I had to go to the bank. She had 3 orders to pick up, because another lady wanted something too. We got back to work about the same time and Rena wanted me to look at the Lo Mein to see which was mine. The first one I opened had chicken in it, so I knew right away that was Amanda's order. I knew the other one was mine, so I tore into the little box only to find beef in my noodles! What??? I couldn't believe it, they messed up my order. The really bad part about this is that we only get 30 minutes for lunch, so there was no going back and getting my correct order. I was about to starve and of all days, I didn't bring anything to snack on. I had no choice but to disect my lunch and pick out all beef particles. I was actually getting sick doing this. What was I to do though? I had to eat something! I got all the big and small pieces of beef picked out of the Lo Mein and ate some of my lunch. I was only half finished and had to stop. I was getting sick to my stomach. I kept thinking about my noodles touching that meat....I just couldn't eat any more.
Has this ever happened to you? Have you ever ordered takeout and ended up with the wrong dish that had meat in it? Oh, and you were in a situation where you couldn't go back to the restaurant to get it corrected? What did you do? Did you eat around the meat or not eat at all? I am wishing now that I would have just done without and starved!
