Bone in Sandwich

July 29, 2019

in Food & Drink Stories

My mother in law and I went out to lunch at a restaurant we’d been to in the past. I ordered chicken salad and she ordered a BLT. When it came, I started eating it and in the second half of the sandwich I bit down on something hard. I picked it out of my mouth and here was a bone in my sandwich. I flagged down the waitress.

Waitress: Can I help you?

Me: Yes, there was a chicken bone in my sandwich.

Waitress: Did you want another one?

At this point I didn’t because I felt a bit sick to my stomach and I’d eaten more than half of it.

Me: No, I just wanted to tell you guys.

The waitress told me she’d let them know. After my mother-in-law was done, we took the bill up to the register. I’d taken a picture of my plate.

Hostess: How was everything?

Me: Fine except I had a chicken bone in my chicken salad.

Hostess: Oh I’m sorry about that. Did the waitress offer you a replacement?

Me: Yes, but I had already eaten half of it.

Hostess: Well the chicken salad is made fresh. If it happens again just take another sandwich.

We weren’t given a discount, I guess because we didn’t raise a stink. We won’t be going back there again for a while, and I won’t be ordering their chicken salad when we do.

I wouldn't really call this a dinner from hell. Accidents happen when making chicken salad fresh and two employees offered you a replacement (and you probably could have asked for something else if it really turned you off).
