The same young man was behind the counter last evening. With so much pent-up energy, he bounced up-and-down while taking customer orders. My faithful favorite burger franchise, decorated with orange and white stripes was about to let me down.
I should have known something was up last time, when my favorite burger with grilled peppers and onions wasn’t on the menu. “Did they still have it?” I inquired. “Yes, ‘Mr. Bounceabout’ answered.”
What a let down. My favorite burger had been discontinued since my last visit. The bouncing counter attendant announced with cold finality.
Disappointed? Yes, but it wasn’t a deal breaker. Why did menu favorites come and go? An acceptable substitute found, and a chance to explore new menu options.
