Omelette Eggs?

Posted on 17. Mar, 2009 by in Miscellaneous

Today my husband had to drive me to a meeting at the Art Institute of Tampa since I’m going back to school soon (yeah, I’ll be “the old one” in class) so we stopped at a Dunkin Donuts on the way there to get some breakfast. And if you’re thinking, “Dunkin Donuts for Miss Weight Watchers? Doesn’t sound very healthy to me!” it’s OK. They have this new sandwich called an egg white flatbread that isn’t too terrible (terrible tasting, or terrible Weight Watchers-wise) and if I get a donut, I get one, not six.


I order my dieter’s delight egg white thing and my husband asks for an egg and cheese croissant. I pay for the order and we’re given our drinks.

After I get my receipt, the cashier mumbles something that I can’t understand. She had a very heavy accent, so I just said, “I’m sorry?” and she goes, “No regular eggs, we have omelette eggs.”

“What do you mean?”
“We’re out of regular eggs. Only have omelette eggs.”

I was pretty confused, but my husband couldn’t tell what she was saying at all, so I asked one more time, “What do you mean?”

She was looking ticked off at me since I didn’t know what she meant, so she repeats, “We’re out of regular eggs. Only have omelette eggs. Omelette eggs, runny eggs! Not regular.”

I have no idea what the heck runny omlette eggs are, but I knew that they are not something my husband would eat. I said, “OK, well give me a refund” and handed her my receipt.

“We can’t do that.”

“Why not?”

“We don’t have regular eggs, only omelette eggs.”


Yes, yes, we’ve already established that.

“OK, then give me something else that costs the same price if you can’t give me the money back.”

“Omelette eggs instead?”

I was ready to rip my hair out, and my husband was still standing there with the baby, dumfounded, still unable to understand this lady.

“I give you donuts instead.”

So somehow we wound up with 6 donuts instead of the egg (regular egg, not omleette egg) and cheese croissant, and I somehow managed to skip eating any of them. Three of them are still sitting in a box on the kitchen counter, so hopefully by now they are stale and gross and I won’t even want them.

P.S. We are never going back to that Dunkin Donuts again.

    OMG! Classic! I would have been like Mel – stood there and demanded my money back – asked to speak to a manager or camped out until police came and tresspassed me! I just signed up for Twitter. You are the first person I found! Funny story!
