Dear new counterperson at Arby's:

When I order my food without certain items on it, especially if I make a note of telling you that there is a health issue involved, it is not funny to hide those items mixed into the bottom of my food so that I don't see them when I check where such items usually are.

When I am so specific with my order it is because I do not wish to consume foods that will cause me physical pain and other less-pleasant side effects that end up with me missing work and hating life in general. I do not have the luxury of a job with benefits, so when your "jokes" make me sick, you are also taking money directly out of my pocket in addition to the expenses you create for medications I will need to counteract your fun.

I don't have a lot of wiggle-room financially, and I choose not to give my money to places that endanger my health and livelihood. In other words, I will be taking my business elsewhere. And I will be letting your manager know exactly why.

What the *insert explicative of choice here*!?

I hate it when people do that stuff.

Whoa, how'd you get that last line to appear on your LJ post (re: it being posted @ DW)?

There's a setting for it at DW.

http://www.dreamwidth.org/manage/settings/?cat=othersites has a spot for "footer" text for crossposting to other sites.

I loathe people who think that people are just being "picky" and should get over it. Please do talk to the manager about it as I've noticed stuff like that happening more and more.

(I was wondering if you would mind if I friended you? My wife is whateversusan on Twitter, and she told me that your wife renee_maris is a friend of hers and I might find what you write interesting. Obviously, it's fine if you'd rather not have random people pop up; that's mostly just to establish that I'm not the mythical crazed internet ax murderer.)

(oh, and she's also shashalnikya if you or Renee wanted to find her on LJ! She is not, however, out quite yet under that ID.)

That seems to border on premeditated poisoning, and might well be illegal in some states. In any case, it's ridiculous and I hope that guy is fired. I hope you were all right, as well.
