Sandwich Woes...

Why are deli sandwiches so much more delicious than homemade sandwiches?! I don't care what magic tricks you pull out of your fridge, it just doesn't taste the same. Sure you could go the extra mile and not only purchase the Boars Head cold cuts, buy the Boars Head mustard and oil and vinegar sandwich dressing to boot...but in my mind, your sandwich just falls a little below perfection. Now that I have paid my deli-workers sufficient respect, I must air my grievances. WHAT IS SO HARD ABOUT GETTING A SANDWICH ORDER CORRECT?! Every single time I order a sandwich from a deli, one ingredient is left out. Now, when you're a food snob, all ingredients are of equal value to your palate. Just because I like more lettuce than onions, does NOT give you, deli worker, free reign to "forget" my onions. They are part of my sandwich family, and without them, I feel incomplete. It down right puts me in a bad mood. In no way, shape or form am I a high maintenance sandwich orderer. Usually, I go mainstream. A little turkey, some cheese....perhaps L,T,O, mayo and mustard. Every time, EVERY TIME, something is missing. Can I get and "A'men" if you're with me!? Lord have mercy on the days where I crave something special. One day, I really wanted extra banana peppers on my un-original sandwich. Just that sour, pickled pepper taste was enough to make my salivary glands channel Niagra Falls. That being said, which ingredient do you think they left out? I used to gawk at crazy people who made scenes, or engaged in physical altercations in public places. Maybe someone got their sandwich order wrong? I almost feel a connection to these angry people right now. So, my question is this: is it necessary to ALWAYS write your order down and hand it to the lovely individual who has the pleasure of making your lunch? I seem to think so.


  1. Whoa.
    I used to make her lunch sometimes.

  2. Agreed. I love tomatoes, but hate lettuce (I know ridiciulous) on my sandwiches. Yup, I get lettuce and no tomatoes.....
