assertiveness is good for the soul

Posted on

i just discovered a comment on a fairly recent post of mine. colleen i am so in, however slow on the uptake. funny with even this much time on my hand i am letting things go by. all in a day's not working.

still in holiday mode and flying solo i went to a local for dinner and to cry into a martini. it's just that special time of the month and that's what i do. could be suffering a bit from holiday withdrawal.

i ordered a steak sandwich and had a bit of a debate with the server as to how to have it done. from experience i know that it is better to err on the underdone to avoid the almost inevitable overcooking. so of course when it arrived a few shades darker and tougher than it should have been i was not all that amused. the server who had so graciously served me had vaporized and a new one had materialized in her place.  she had offered to have it redone, but i'd lost my appetite by then so she took it away. when she presented me with my bill i told her i was not going to pay for the meal. i said to her that it clearly stated on my bill how it was to be done and it wasn't done that way. she pulled a bit of a face and told me that eaten food couldn't be refunded. i replied that i had eaten two bites of it, and she saw it because she had taken it away. the manager agreed and the offending meal was removed from my bill. now the reason i feel vindicated is because i have paid for untold many a bad dinner and even tipped for the insult. i guess i've hit the wall, finally. should have had the chicken or just stuck to the martinis. they were marvy.
