    Sure, I can pick the croutons off. But why do I need to? They actually have a mechanism in their system to delete croutons. And for that matter, go light or add more if you want (those are even options in their online order system.) Every other burger girl, every single one, at multiple locations, gets it right. No problem. No hassle. This girl is missing a fundamental concept here. I ordered a Ceasar salad. The thing that makes a Ceasar salad a Ceasar salad is Ceasar dressing. If you don't have Ceasar dressing on it, it isn't a Ceasar salad. If you have no dressing on it, and it would have been a Ceasar salad had it had dressing on it, that still doesn't make it a Ceasar salad. It's kind of like ordering your car without the body. Something that defines its model is missing.

    Regarding anger management, okay, once is an honest mistake. Maybe twice. But repeated corrections and she still gets it wrong? Come on.

    I described bulging spandex to set the situation as it was, I am not under the illusion that women find it attractive. I never claimed that. I was out riding. I really don't care how my appearance is perceived. I REALLY DON'T CARE! I'm just stating how it is. I mean, there are other riders that eat there too. It's next to a bike shop and a local riding club meets there on weekends to go riding in groups. No, I am not part of that riding group. I do not like to ride with groups. But I do like eating Habit Burgers, which is why I frequent the burger place next to the bike shop.

    Lettuce wrapped burger, no crouton salads? Trying to cut down on carbs? Maybe consider holding off on the bacon and cheese on the burgers also? LOL And definitely diet coke, right? Afterall, it's the healthier choice.

    Seriously... how did the spit on your burger (and salad) taste on visits #2 and 3?

    Fair enough. ;)

    I see two options - the girl is dense or she just doesn't like you and thinks it's funny. Maybe go incognito next time.

    It would be fairly difficult, unless she was the one that retrieved to order from the cooks and placed it on the pickup counter, which has not been the case so far.

    I mean under other circumstances I'd still make out with her, so I guess it wouldn't be that big of a deal either way.

    So, wait... if the cooks are the ones making the salad - not her, why the anger at her?

    Nah, not my first choice.

    The cooks go off of how it's rung up. For all they know, the "salad, Ceasar, Parmesan only" could be a legitimate request by someone that doesn't like dressing or croutons. But, then again, I can see where you might point out a logical flaw. By definition, the Ceasar salad would necessarily have to have dressing on it. Regardless, it's really confusing and it's not even remotely what I asked for.

    Their mechanism for this has worked for you exactly 0% of the time. Maybe you should stop relying on it and just pick them off.

    You took pains to mention your "Biceps pumped. Quads flexed. Gluteals tight" and visible package, and yet we are to believe you don't care about how you look in your cycle jock costume? Methinks the gentleman protests too much. :rolleyes:

    This tiny annoyance seems to be consuming *way* too much of your attention for one lifetime.

    Au contraire mon frere, their mechanism has worked for me well over 99% of the time. I could drive over to the local place near work and be well assured that my salad will be suitably dressed, sans croutons.

    I'm annoyed less by croutons and more by a pattern of gross, if not willful incompetence.

    You mentioned they have online ordering, seems thats your solution. Remove burger chick from the equation and remind her that shes being replaced by self-service when you pick it up.

    So save your receipt from one time when someone else does it right, and next time she takes your order show it to her and ask "please ring it up just like this." Sometimes you just have to learn to speak their language. Once I taught my son to say "cheeseburger plain and dry" instead of "hamburger with cheese and nothing else on it" he started reliably getting what he wanted and without holding up everyone in line behind us.

    Well, well, well, well, let's not get to hasty here. Bear in mind some of the burger chicks hook me up with a free drink plus I get to talk to a burger chick. The only issue is with one particular burger chick, at one single location.

    That is a good idea. I might just do that. Of course, I would probably have to remember to pack the receipt with me since 99% of the time I'm stopping there on a bicycle and I don't brink my wallet (just some cash and a card.)

    Are you kidding? Habit is Inn & Out on steroids. I'll take it over I&O any day of the week. Bigger patties, flame grilled, other stuff on the menu besides burgers and fries, what's not to like.

    I usually down about two or three gallons of their citrus green ice tea when on a bike ride. That strawberry lemonade looks good but I would be climbing the walls.

    I'm sorry that everything doesn't go the way you want it to. I'm sorry that there are people who don't do their jobs right, and that they cause you stress. I'm sorry that there are people who think that you look dorky in your bicycling costume. It must all be frustrating for you.

    I think snapping illicit photos of burger girls would probably lead to bad mojo. Said burger girl is sort of the average next-door type, nothing drop dead gorgeous, but not bad either. If I were to say take the top ten most attractive burger girls from the various Habits I frequent and line them up in order, I'm not positive she would make the list, but then again even number ten is still going to be fairly decent.

    I thought a picture of the Burger Girl . . .

    The picture showing all the mayo that shouldn't be on a hamburger ruined the whole episode for me. . Remember, hamburgers are not made from ground ham, but a little mayo goes well on a ham sandwich. About a third if what's unnecessarily in this here alleged "burger.".

    Hmmm, smilies done been turnt off . . .

    accidentally drop one of those delicious croutons on the ground and ask her to pick it up, THEN snap a pic!
