The other day my boyfriend Sean ordered egg and cheese on a bagel from a food cart in Midtown Manhattan.
Sean was expecting to receive something like this (but without the bacon). It's a New York/Tristate Area staple! A very normal thing to order!
Sean was upset. I was upset. A large portion of the internet was upset after I tweeted a pic of it out.
How could this have happened? In NEW YORK nonetheless?
I mean, Paul F. Tompkins was interested...
But most people were horrified.
And it got me thinking. How many other people have fallen victim to a food server taking their order too literally?
So share your best "not what I meant!!!" food stories and photos in the comments below. The best ones will be featured in a BuzzFeed Community post or video!
And by the way, yes, Sean did eat that hard-boiled-egg-and-cream-cheese-oyster-looking-bagel. 🤢
