Day 019: When restaurants mess up orders and give you the right order as well as the one they got wrong

When restaurants mess up orders and give you the right order as well as the one they got wrong. Today I went to Sancho’s for some $1.45 tacos. I ordered 2 Al Pastor, 2 Asada, 1 Lengua (cow tongue), and 1 Chicharron (pork skin). When they brought my 6 tacos to the table I asked which ones were which. The women explained that the left 4 were my asada and at that point I stopped listening because I was so distraught that my order was wrong. As soon as she was done speaking I let her know that I had ordered 2 asada and 2 al pastor, and almost immediately she said “oh, I’ll have those right out.” Satisfied, I looked down at my plate only to realize that I had no idea which one of the two tacos (that weren’t asada) were which. Which, ironically, were the only ones I actually cared to know as it was my first time having them. In what seemed like less than a minute the woman was back with my 2 al pastor tacos, she hastily puts them down and turns to walk away. In that moment I could have stopped and asked her to repeat which tacos were which again, but unfortunately my afraid-of-judgement brain didn’t want to look dumb or maybe it didn’t want to be a nuisance so I said “thank you, I appreciate it” and I began to dig into my now 8 tacos, 6 of which I paid for, and 2 of which were still a mystery to me.
