A South Carolina husband’s post has gone viral after he misread writing on a sandwich as ‘b***h’ only to discover it read BLT with cheese.
Robert Wilson Barnes, of Greenville, couldn’t believe his eyes when he spotted the five letters after leaving a drive-thru and thought it was an offensive insult.
In a Facebook post he wrote ‘Are you freakin’ serious?’ and went onto explain the lead-up to his complaint over wife Colleen O’Reilly Barnes’ order.
‘My wife took her sandwich out of the bag and we see THIS! Seriously? Oh, not today, not today!’ he posted.
Barnes stormed back into Jimmy John’s fast food restaurant to demand to speak to the manager and for an explanation from the ‘confused’ looking server.
Robert Wilson Barnes couldn’t believe when he thought the letters on his wife’s bacon, lettuce and tomato sandwich with cheese actually read ‘b***h’
Barnes and wife Colleen (left) had just left the drive-thru of a Jimmy John’s fast food restaurant when they noticed the five letter word. Barnes raced back into complain but quickly found a more than reasonable explanation for the word
‘I pointed at the writing on the sandwich and demanded that he tells me why someone felt the need to write it on my wife’s sandwich,’ Barnes wrote.
But little did he know, instead of spelling ‘b***h,’ as he previously thought, it was actually an abbreviation for the sandwich’s ingredients – bacon, lettuce and tomato with cheese.
The man told him: ”Because you ordered a BLT with cheese?’ To which I replied, ‘…Oh.”
