...and hold the cheese

I say, "No cheese" or "Hold the cheese" nearly every time I go out to eat. I love cheese, but I don't usually get it on my food because it's unneeded calories at this time. 

Yesterday I was out shopping with Janelle and Kelly. We stopped for lunch at a random fast food restaurant. I ordered a half baja salad with no cheese. 

The lady was like, "No cheese?" 

"Yes, hold the cheese. Thanks."

"I can do that for ya. I'll just go make your salad right now."

So, I watch her put the spinach in the serving container and then I watch her scoop the chili onto the spinach. Then I watch her scoop more chili onto the spinach.

I look at Janelle and tell her what's going on. Actually, I say, "Oh my god. That's enough freakin' chili for the whole serving size of that salad. I only ordered the half."

Right on cue, this lady turns around and has my salad ready for me and puts it on my tray. She looks at me and says, "I put some extra chili on there for you...since you didn't want the cheese. It looked a little bare."

"Oh thanks." I grabbed my tray and gave Janelle a strange look. When I sat down at the table I looked at Kelly and then my salad. 

Kelly was like, "That's a lot of chili."

"I know. The lady told me that she gave me extra chili because I said no cheese. I swear, she thought she gave me the hook up." 

I started scooping chili off of my salad and when Janelle sat down she just looked at me, smiled, and said, "I think that lady missed the point of no cheese." 

"You're damn right she did. I don't have a salad...I have chili with spinach floating in it!"

So, I had to scoop a ton of chili off of my salad before I could even eat it. It was still a good salad, but that lady was a little crazy. I feel like I would have asked for an extra scoop of chili if I wanted more!


  1. LOL! That is hysterical though! Good job scooping off the chili at least.

  2. Haha, at least she tried to sub *something* - most places would just say okay and charge full price for half the order!

  3. Every time I go to Subway they ask what type of cheese I want and I say "No cheese, please" and they get all flustered and confused. I always give my brother grief for putting cheese on his foods too. It really isn't worth the calories sometimes!! Good job resisting it!!
