Lunch Date From HELL!

Shantel, and her friend Jaz, decided they were going to go out to lunch after class a while back. They agreed to meet in the school cafeteria after their last class, walk to the shopping center behind the school campus, where they would stop at Sally’s Beauty Supply to pick up a few items Shantel needed for her hair, before catching the bus that would take them to Macayo’s Mexican Food restaurant.

When they arrived in the school cafeteria, an elderly student, who is a mutual friend of Shantel and Jaz, asked them if they would mind watching her “stuff” for a few minutes while she took care of something she needed to do. Shantel and Jaz agreed but asked her to hurry because they were going out to lunch. Shantel said as their luck would have it, the elderly lady was late getting back which made Shantel and Jaz late leaving for the shopping center.

However, Shantel and Jaz still had enough time to get to Sally’s before the bus came but they would need to just run in and grab the items they needed and get right out so they wouldn’t miss their bus. Unfortunately, that plan didn’t work out so well. By the time they got out of Sally’s Jaz told Shantel the bus they needed to catch was just pulling away. Well, not to worry… The girls decided to kill some time, they would go to the Starbucks right there in the same shopping center and get something to drink. Unfortunately, that plan went south as well, because they got behind some people who didn’t know how to order anything so they had a bit of a wait again. Then, while they were standing in line to get their drinks, Jaz looked at the Sally’s receipt and noticed Shantel paid $20.00 for an item they thought was $7.99. No time to return the item that day so Jaz told Shantel to keep the receipt and they would make a return trip to Sally’s later that week.

By the time the girls finally got their drinks at Starbucks, Jaz noticed the next bus they needed to catch was just pulling up to the bus stop so Jaz had to shove the drinks in her backpack, because no food or drinks are allowed on the bus, and off they ran to catch the bus, which they did finally get on this time.

The girls finally got to Macayo’s restaurant, but just as they stepped off the bus, the bag from Sally’s broke spilling all the hair product items out all over the sidewalk. Jaz was scrambling to pick them up and had to cram them all into Shantel’s purse, something Shantel was none too happy about because she doesn’t like ANYTHING dirty to touch anything of hers.

Once inside Macayo’s, Shantel of course had to go to the restroom where she was met with yet another opportunity to overcome a challenge when she got stuck inside the bathroom stall. Lucky for Shantel, Jaz knows karate and was able to kick the door open and get Shantel out.

But the fun was not over yet. When it was finally time to order lunch the girls asked for two orders of mini chimi’s  but only one arrived at the table so they had another wait to get the second order. Go figure. 🙂

Shantel and Jaz decided they are going to go back to Macayo’s again this coming week. However, they have a better plan. They are not going to “stuff” sit for anyone. They are not going to go to Sally’s or Starbucks, They are just going to leave school right after class and head straight for the bus to Macayo’s so they won’t be so rushed and hopefully they won’t have another “lunch date from HELL!!!”

Stay Tuned!

    That was really a day of nightmares. She and her girlfriend need to start over again like you said and don’t do any favors for anyone. Enjoy your lunch this week Shantel and Uncle Harvey and Aunt Ellen love you and we are so proud of you. We would say have fun at college, but you seem to be having more than fun there!!!!!!

    One positive thing they were committed to getting to lunch no matter what detours stood in there way. Hoping their next lunch will be filled with relaxation, laughing and good food. Thanks for sharing
