when the bread doesn't line up...

mark | Jun 20, 2008 04:53 AM

ok, ridiculously inane topic, but here goes:

i stop at the company cafeteria a few times each week to grab a breakfast sandwich. there are 2 women who work the grill/prepare food. one of them consistently puts my sandwich together with the slices of bread oriented in different directions. i cannot eat it.

before i can eat that sandwich, i have to realign the bread. i don't even understand how she can make it that way; it's an affront to me that it's not symmetrical, and disturbing to me that it doesn't seem to bother her at all. it's like walking around with one shoe tied tighter than the other; no balance. yes, i'm well aware that i'm overly fastidious.

don't get me wrong, i understand this is a very little thing, and matters only to me. it's a very simple thing for me to rotate one piece of toast. i would never give her any grief over it, and i tip her the same as i do the one who makes 'em right.

any other fans of the symmetrical sandwich out there?
