Every Sunday I get a chicken sandwich and dinner salad, to go, from Benniganís.
Iíve been doing it for about two years now. I always get fat-free honey mustard salad dressing on the saladÖor so I thought.
See, there was somebody new behind the bar tonight. Well, she wasnít newóI had seen her working as a server throughout the past few yearsóbut she wasnít the person I usually order from.
I gave her my order and told her that I wanted the fat-free honey mustard dressing and she said: ďWe donít have fat-free honey mustard dressing. Well, we havenít had that for like a year-and-a-half.Ē
ďThat canít be right. Iíve been ordering it every week for two years now.Ē
ďYou might have been ordering it, but you werenít eating it. The closest thing we have to fat-free honey mustard is low-fat Italian. You want that?Ē
100 salads x 2 tbsp dressing/salad x 10 grams of fat/tbsp = 2,000 grams of fat I didnít know I was eating and wouldnít have eaten had I of known.
So what can I charge Benniganís with?
