A while back I ate at Applebee’s, and it was before a concert so I was eating a light meal. I ordered a bacon chicken sandwich, but it failed to have any bacon on it. Obviously that is unacceptable, so I pointed this out to the waitress, and she took it away and brought it back with bacon. A few minutes later she came by the table to ask, “Is it better now?” What kind of question is that? Of course it’s better with bacon! What sandwich wouldn’t be?
I didn’t embarrass her about the dumb question. She probably never realized what she was asking, and it’s her job to make sure that the dining experience is going well.
One thought on “Does bacon make your sandwich better?”

I have to admit, at first glance that sounds like a dumb question. However, depending on how you answer, it could be an awesome question.
Instead of giving the expected response, indicate that the sandwich is a little better, but would be closer to the expected level of better with more bacon. Repeat this every time you get asked about the food until you have all the bacons.
