Last Wednesday, I was off work, so I decided to go run some errands. Before going on any stupid errands, however, I went to Taco Bell for lunch. There, I encountered a terrible situation, which I was completely unprepared to deal with. Here's how it went down. I went to the counter and ordered my food. I did not think to specify "for here" or "to go," and the guy behind the counter didn't ask. I felt it was obvious that I wanted to dine in because if I didn't plan on staying, I would have hit the drive-thru. But whatever. I get my food, and it's "to go." Now what the hork do I do? I can't just sit down and start stuffing my face because then the staff is going to be, like, "Why the hork did he order that 'to go' if he's going to eat here?" I can't be a jerk and be, like, "This was meant to be 'for here,'" because I didn't specifiy, and it is against my code of food service conduct to blame everything on the staff. I can't just take it back home because I have stupid horking errands to run and I'm not driving home and back just to eat. I can't just sit in my car and eat it because I'll look pretty stupid eating in my car when I'm right outside the place. And, I'm really low on gas, and it's roughly 108 degrees outside, so I'll have to sit there with the AC blasting.
This was the most vexing situation I've been in in a long time. I won't say what I ended up doing, but I'm open to suggestions on what to do should that situation arise in the future.
