Was served a toasted sandwich (didn't order it, work thing) today. Knew before it showed up that the silly b*ggers would toast lettuce and cucumbers in with the filling so that the sandwich tasted like day-old grass cuttings....

Why can they not make a decent toasted sandwich in this country????:curse:

{ok, it doesn't kill me but some days the small stuff seems to matter}
