Blank Stare Bingo

I love blank stares. I think they're always good for a snicker and require no effort. They're especially wonderful in a food service environment.

Guy and Gallard Cafe has a new online service where you go onto their site, order some food, go pick it up or have it delivered. Nice.

Last week, I decided to (as greek dad says) "take the whirl." I ordered their Spicy Thai Chicken Salad. First of all, why they chose to name their salad "Spicy Thai" when ingredients included CORN, AVOCADO, CARROTS and BBQ CHICKEN is beyond me....but I digress. Ok fuck digression: it's not Thai, it's not Asian, it's not even foreign! It doesn't require a passport! It's Southwestern, kids! Not even well-executed...mr. add carrots! Don't make me call Bobby Flay on your ass.

Anyway...I ordered the salad, waited 15 minutes and headed up to the G&G.

Here's the tricky part: there are two G&Gs on Park Ave. I had ordered my salad to be picked up at G&G#1. G&G#2 is across the street.

G&G#1 had no record of my order. I behaved. I swear. I said "ok, must've been a mistake. I'll go across the street."

G&G#2 had my salad. Terrific. I put the taser away.

I thought I'd be a friendly customer and say kindly to the Young Man With Snazzy Hair Net: "You know, I'd ordered on your web site and chose to pick up my food at G&G1, but it's over here. I just wanted you to know in case some one else has the same problem."

::BLANK STARE::

I say again "Well, I just wanted to tell you guys, in case more customers are coming in with the same confusion."

YMWSHN: "But the food is here."

"Yes," I valiantly continue. "I'm just telling you guys in case there are other people who don't know which place has their food."

::BLANK STARE::

YMWSHN: "...you have your food."

"Got it. Yes. There is no problem with my food. I'm just saying - you know what? Nevermind. Nevermind. All set. Ok."

YMWSHN: "Where's your credit card?"

"No, see, I was going to pay in cash. Online there's an option to pay with cash."

::BLANK STARE::
