In a Pickle

I totally believe that at every fast food restaurant in town there is a cash register where the Pickle and Ketchup buttons are to close together. Every fast food joint I have ever been to has at one time put Pickles in my burger instead of Ketchup. For many years, I thought that I had poor annunciation but there is no way that the words Ketchup and Pickle sound the same when they come out of my mouth.

The greatest fast food restaurant invention has got to be the monitor they place at the ordering speaker that lets you see what the person taking your order presses. Just this evening as I ordered my burger the way I always do, only mustard and ketchup, I saw on the screen that it read mustard and pickle! At that moment, Juan called and he heard a little of my frustration with these machines!

So, I ask that if there is someone out there working a drive-thru window to please watch your fingers as you press the ketchup (or catsup) button because that might be me ordering and I don’t eat green food, cept cilantro.

Maybe I should order like this guy:

    You are a Picky Pickled Person Sal …. Everything you eat has to be a certain way … It dont bother me .. I think its funny. Maybe those people at the drive thru have FAT FINGERs and when they press the “Ketchup ” button.. they are really pressing the ” add pickles ” button .

    Just be like me .. If I dont want to eat it .. I take it out . 🙂

    I think it’s hilarious when you click on a topic on your blog and it comes up, Google adds those topics beside it. Pickling, How to Pickle, Want a pickle? Wouldn’t you like to be a pickle, too? Be a pickle, drink Dr. Pickle. Oops, sorry. Got carry away there with the Dr. Pepper tune. It’s 11:20 and I’m too old to be “blogging.”

    Hey Sal, maybe you should eat healthier and you wouldn’t have to worry about PICKLES ON YOUR KETCHUP.

    If you like those adds click them! Generate some revenue for me. 🙂

    I’d eat healthier if the food didnt taste so bad. I am a connoisseur when it comes to food!

    As the ex-queen of Rally’s Hamburgers…..I’d have to say… You keep ordering the way you want it. People need to be more careful. What if you were the mystery shopper of the day? (But there are people with BIG fingers out there, like Abel)
