I like to think I have a lot of gratitude.
If my grandma gets me white socks for Christmas, totally cool with that. If given a book that I didn’t really care to read, it’s the thought that counts.
But recently we have had catering at the office and the one thing I can not stand is Jason’s Deli. I can not fathom how people swear by their mediocre food.
Recently a vendor told me he was coming in for a follow-up presentation and would be bringing in lunch again. Eventually, I asked, “Ummm what are you bringing?” He was like “Do you not like Jason’s Deli?”
I am grateful for whatever I am given but please for the love of all that is holy, no more Jason’s Deli.

So when asked about Jason’s Deli, I mentioned anything would be better. When pressed further I said, “I don’t know, Schlotzsky’s!”
Let me tell you, Schlotzsky’s was a big hit. Not only with my coworkers but even the vendor thanked me and said it was cheaper than the Jason’s Deli he ordered for us last time.
Another vendor emailed me saying she had a meeting with us and I emailed back “Just don’t bring Jason’s Deli”. We will see how that meeting goes tomorrow.
