I went to Applebee's with my Dad, and I ordered the nachos "without cheese, meat, or sour cream, but extra guacamole and salsa." Which left only jalapenos, tomato, beans and lettuce sort of rolling arond on the chips. I was happy with it, but you should have seen the perplexed look the bartender had ... though she put the order through nicely and without any fuss. *lol*

LOL. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"> I love making orders like that. Since I live in "dairyland", it always seems to disturb people when I ask for no cheese. I guess I'm sort of a cheese blasphemer around here. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

When I worked at a pizza place (assist. Manager) the weirdest order I ever had was a pizza, no cheese and pineapple. Only thing I did was wash the pizza cutter to prevent contanimation. Others gave it a weird look though.

I worked at a pizza place as an assistant manager when I was just out of high school (before I got hired on with the telecom company I work for now).<br><br><br><br>
I always hated making anchovy pizzas, and none of the regular employees would do it, so as the manager on duty, I'd have to. ;-;

I mentioned getting veggie fajitas to my Mexican boyfriend once, and he thought it was goofy. Did you know that its the actual skirt steak that is called a fajita, not the tortillas and veggies it can be served with? I just thought that was interesting <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=";)">

When I used to get the occassional veggie sub (no cheese) at Subway, they used to give me strange looks, appear confused, and sometimes actually become angry when I asked them to change their gloves and wipe off the little counter.<br><br><br><br>
I would actually practice asking in the nicest, least offensive way possible before going in there, in hopes that, for once, they would just smile and spend the 3 seconds needed to change gloves and wipe the counter. Never worked. I stopped going there over a year ago. F*** that-<br><br><br><br>
I mean, I would even wait 'til there were no other customers in line, so I didn't have to hold them up or make them change glove in the middle of a rush... Oh, well....they simply don't deserve my business.<br><br><br><br><br><br>
I mean, what's the big frickin' deal? If I don't want to eat meat, WHY would I want to eat something that has been contaminated with meat juice? They never could get that....<br><br><br><br>
Let it go, aksjg, let it go.....

OMG. I had the rare experience of having a Subway employee smile AND nod when I asked her to change gloves before making my sandwich!<br><br><br><br>
It happened less than a week ago. Way cool.

When I told this Thai lady to leave out the fish sauce, which is the one of the essence of Thai food, she almost kicked me out of her diner <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"><br><br><br><br>
But the stir fry was still decent <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p">

I was in phx at a sub place and my brother ordered before me and had chicken. I told the guy i wanted a veggie sub and if he could change his gloves i would appreciate it. He said no problem he use to be veg and understands completely and it seemed several people that worked there were vegetarian also. They even asked if i was vegan. It was nice.

To be honest... they're really should change the gloves anyway. Contamination is a food service no-no ( as in using spoons for a meat dish, then veggies -> cooked or not ).

Well, sadly, I've never had a postive Subway experience. Maybe it is just the Subways in Alaska...<br><br><br><br>
Blimpie's is much better. They are always willing to accommodate with a smile...

I get that in some paces, too. It's a cool vibe. More inviting.

When I ordered a pizza without chesse, she looked confused!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br>
When I asked if a drink had dairy in, she replyed that it didn't in a weird way, she seemed weird anyways.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=";)"> She came back and told me that it had coconut milk and asked if I could have that. That was nice though.

The other day at Bennigan's I ordered a salad without meat and cheese and don't you know that it came out with pieces of hard boiled egg on it??? Gross.....anyway, when I told the waitress I couldn't eat it because of the egg I thought she'd get annoyed because I didn't specify "no egg" also but she was nice about it.

My aunt and I were at Bennigans once for lunch, and I ordered the chicken fajitas without the chicken. There were no chickenless fajitas listed on the menu, and I did NOT want a veggie burger (one of the few vegetarian options on their menu). You should have seen the look the waiter gave me!!! He thought I was NUTS!<br><br><br><br>
I have slightly less patience for that kind of thing these days. If a waiter gives me a hard time, I'm a lot more likely to pick up my purse and act like I'm going to leave. I don't know why I'm like this, but I guess I figure that if they won't at least treat me nicely, then they don't deserve having me stay.

Shoulda gone to Togo's. It was actually part of our policy to change gloves whenever someone ordered a veggie sandwich. Of course, that was largely due to the fact that I was a manager there. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> A few other managers were vegetarians, too. When I go to the one I worked at, though, they still change gloves, so it must've stuck. That, or they've heard about me. Random employees call me by name and give me free food, and I quit there 5 or 6 years ago. Scary.<br><br><br><br>
The oddest look I get is when I go to Hof's and order a "Good Earth" (avocado, cucumber, sprouts, tuna) sandwich without the tuna and thousand island and with a garden burger stuffed in. A vegetarian waitress gave me the idea, but apparently she never told any of the the other servers about it.
