When I lived in Dublin, OH (home of Jack Nicklaus & the Memorial ⛳️ Tournament, right outside Columbus), I was thrilled that we actually had a Burger King nearby.

(I’d often visit that establishment when I was allowed out on a “day pass” as i was in a minimum security prison.)

This one Sunday morning, after I attended 8:00 Mass…

⚡️⚡️ ⚡️


…I drove to BK to grab some breakfast.

I ordered myself 3 Croissan’wiches: 1 sausage, 1 bacon & 1 ham.

Upon arriving home, I unwrapped the 1st Croissan’wich…🤔…then the 2nd one…🤔🤔…and finally the 3rd & last one. 🤔🤔🤔

At this time, mid-2010s, they didn’t yet offer their Impossible Burger, but these definitely seemed to be their Questionable Croissan’wiches!!!

I immediately headed back to BK & pulled into the drive-thru.

“Excuse me, Ma’am, but I just ordered 3 Croissan’wiches not more than a few minutes ago.”

“Ah, yes, I remember you serving you!” as she was, of course, undressing me with her eyes. Yea, she wore her blue locks in a hairnet.

“Well it seems that there was no egg nor cheese in any of my Croissan’wiches!!! I’m sure it was just an oversight, so if I can just get my order completed, I’d appreciate it!”

I even handed her my receipt along with the bag.

She pored over the evidence at hand. 🔬

“But, sir, it seems that you didn’t request egg & cheese on your Croissan’wiches & you were charged accordingly!”

Right away, I checked my surroundings. No, I hadn’t been mysteriously whisked away to Mars. Not yet, at least.

“I don’t get it. The other day, I ordered a Whopper with cheese, no lettuce, no tomato, extra onions. And while I didn’t specifically mention it, you did include the bun!!!”

“But, sir, you…”

“Uh, you don’t think you maybe should’ve asked me about the egg & cheese?!? I mean, how many people actually order Croissan’wiches with no egg & cheese?

“Look right there!” as I pointed to the huge poster with a picture of a Croissan’wich, complete with egg & cheese, no less!!!
