Panda Express...you are sooooooooo outed for being a big fat sham.
Have you ever visited a Panda Express where they have plastered ALL OVER THE PLACE their "promise" about "If you aren't given a receipt at the time of purchase while you are still at the counter you get a FREE MEAL" ????
Our Panda Express states that promise.
So much so, that I watch them like Go-Go Gadget Eagle Eyes to make sure I get my friggin' receipt.
Don't judge me.
If you make a promise, and you break it, I'M MAKING YOU STICK TO IT.
Case in point.
Steve and I hit up the drive thru.
It's PLASTERED on their drive up window.
I get our food.
We check for correctness.
She opens up the window and asks, "Did you need something else?"
AND BINGO WAS HIS NAME-O!
YOU DIDN'T GIVE ME MY RECEIPT!!!
(i totally did NOT say that outloud but it completely went through the self talk in my head)
I very politely inform her that she forgot my receipt, and given their plastered promise, I am now entitled to a free meal.
She laughed at me.
To my face.
Then handed me my receipt, and started to close the window in "buh-bye" fashion.
Oh no she didn't.
I laugh right back now, because if you know me, this is where I start to get chippy.
I again, very politely say, "But your pretty little sign says if YOU forget, then I get a free meal, and you forgot."
She is now straight faced and a little pinkish.
Because now my friends, she realizes I AM SERIOUS.
I want my free meal and I'm not leaving here without it because NOW lady, you have crossed me.
You broke your plastered-all-over-your-store-promise.
We have a 5 second stare down.
(if you've ever had one of these you know that they feel like FOR.EV.ER.)
She signed my receipt.
I get a free meal. (exhibit B)
And yeah, they are sooo getting my opinion and I am totally getting a side. (exhibit A)
Moral of the story...don't break your promises.
It makes you look like an "a double snakes."
i am joni lane, and if your cross your heart and hope to die stick a million needles in your thigh...it just might happen on my watch.
