    i never stop at delis or anything for breakfast, but i was up so early. the sign said, "pork roll and cheese sandwich, 99cents." so i stop, ask for a pork roll and cheese sandwich. she gives me this thick, great lookin sandwich. i was like, "wow, u get alot for 99 cents around here." she goes, "oh." and takes my sandwich away. im thinkin, wtf? she comes back 5 min later with this ragedy, nasty lookin sandwich with one very skinny slice of pork roll on it, and a sliver of cheese. im like, "what happened to my nice sandwich.?" she goes, "well, u should have said that u wanted the one that was on special." i said, "look sugar, the sign said pork roll and cheese, and thats what i asked for." amazing. so, when i quote a price, should i do a crappy job, and when they complain say, "oh, u wanted a good job."

    I would have took the crappy sandwich and left her a 2 cent tip. Just giving her your 2 cents worth.

    Or the roadside restaurant, 'All you can eat, $3.99'.

    Ask for a second helping, they say "That's all you can eat for $3.99"

    OK, I won't quit my day job.....

    The first and last time I stopped at a deli for breakfast was when I was 18 yo w/ two of my buddies. Rick had a roast beef something or another blah, blah special & he was the first to chow down when we got back to the car. sticking out of the perfect half moon shape bite out of the sandwich was a big, twisted, black pubic hair! Needless to say, I didn't even unwrap my sandwich - just pigeon holed it.

    Avoid deli breakfasts because (1) a lot of times you're getting leftovers from the day before and/or old stock they need to move; (2) whoever it is in the kitchen at 4:00 a.m. doing prep is probably disgruntled & doesn't give a rats arse what you fire down your gullet.

    I was expecting a little more from that story. I figured maybe she asked you to come to the back room and you gave her the REAL breakfest special.
