Jack in the Box turns the tables on me
Ok, this is kind of a weird story, but why not. Yesterday, I stopped at the Jack in the Box drive-thru to get some fries. I ordered a large fries (we were taking a road trip), but as we drove away, I discovered that they had also charged me extra for small fries!!! How outrageous!!!
We were at the very beginning of a 2.5-hour trip, so with nothing else to do, I called them up and told them had mischarged me. I thought they would just write my name down and I could get some free fries the next time I went in, whenever that was.
Me: I ordered large fries but you also charged me for small fries
Jack lady: When did you come in?
Me: Like 10 minutes ago
Jack: Come back and we’ll fix it
Me: I can’t, I’m already on the freeway
Here’s where things start to go wrong:
Jack: Well, when do you want to come in?
Me: (Fumbling to think of a date) I don’t know…sometime next week?
Jack: Tell me exactly when so I can tell the manager on duty
Me: Umm…I guess Monday
Jack: What time?
Jack: So, 3-5pm?
SO NOW I APPARENTLY HAVE CORNERED MYSELF INTO HAVING TO GO BACK TO JACK IN THE BOX TO PICK UP A SMALL FRIES ($1.10), WHICH I’M NOT EVEN HUNGRY FOR BUT I GUESS I HAVE TO GO GET THEM
