And as I thought it over, I'm pretty sure it wasn't because I was sick as a dog (I was assured this phrase is in no way derogatory to the dog) and more has to do with the general lack of common sense.
Scene: A certain fast-er food restruant that we shall call "Asian Grizzly".
Me: 2 entrees cost more than the 2 entree+1 side plate correct?
Me: I just want the 2 entrees. Can you charge me for the plate and not give me a side?
Employee: no, if it goes into the little boxes I have to charge you for the 2 entree price.
Me (thinking I was clever, and the problem was the fancy little chinese boxes that the single entrees come in): OK, just put it in the styrafoam plate container, but don't put the side in it.
(employee proceeds to take out 2 styrafoam containers)
Employee: I still have to charge you the 2 entree price)
Me: Fine. I want the 2 entree plate
Employee: what side do you want.
Me: It doesn't matter I'm going to throw it away
Me: I don't want a side. I'm going to throw it away, so choose for me.
Employee: Well, I don't want to waste food.....
Me: I know.
Employee: I'll just give you the 2 entrees
Me: thank you. (pays for her side-less plate and takes her sick butt back to the car where Tess reminded her she would have been fine with the rice, but settles on the half portion of one of the sides that I can't finish because I'm sick).
I'm pretty sure I'll get over this awful cold just in time for it to rain this weekend. Sorry Farley.
Two days of heavy rains, flash flood warnings
