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.
