Takeout/delivery snafus

BobB | Nov 17, 2008 11:17 AM

I was recently reminded of a classic takeout mix-up that happened to me a few years ago. I ordered a pizza with hamburger and anchovies. The counter clerk must have abbreviated the request on the order slip, and the cook misread it. I was already home and ready to dig in to my tasty dinner when I opened the box and saw that instead of hamburger and anchovies, it was made with ham and artichokes!

Not a catastrophe but I was really psyched for anchovies and this just did not hit the spot.

Any other dyslexic dining disasters out there? Unexpected delivery "surprises"?
