A quick rant. I went to dinner last night with some of my favorite friends, which is always a greatly needed escape from kids, work, sleep deprivation, etc... We went to Applebee's. We waited 20 minutes for our order to be taken. A little frustrating. We ordered sandwiches and wraps. An hour later we got our sandwiches and wraps - no, they weren't filled with steak or anything else that would even require cooking. Even more frustrating. I took a bite of my sandwich. Then looked at it more carefully seeing the big green mold spot in the middle of the bread. What is that!?! How do you prepare food for a living and not notice something like that? The manager came over and told us she would have the sandwiches re-made for us and that they would be free. I told her I was reluctant to give it up, mold and all, because it had taken so long to get it in the first place. She promised five minutes. It was more like ten. I ate my sandwich quickly, without looking at it, afraid of what I might see. I don't think I will be going back anytime soon. I would like to go out again, maybe next time we'll just go to Chick-filet.
