I’m on a 1-10pm shift this week, I eat before I go to the office and for my merienda I buy something at gateway or cubao, as I pass there everyday. Yesterday, my taste buds craved for Jolly Hotdog sandwich. Luckily, I will pass by Jollibee Farmers, so no hassle there ( I thought) so at around lunch time I bought 1 jolly hotdog sandwich and left.
I didn’t open the sandwich until 730pm, when my tummy called for it. As I open the styro, the melted cheese and ketchup greeted me. I was actually considering of heating it, when suddenly something caught my eye. The picture below shows what is tattoed on my jolly hotdog bread.
Yes, its mold. Sabi ni Khaye, “kung ayaw mo ako nalang kakain” Sabi ko naman isa lang naman at maliit so kakainin ko nalang kesa si khaye kumain, walang pupuntahan pag iinarte ko – gutom lang. Haha. BUT! Wait there’s more! When I was about to remove the molded part, there I see.. a twin of the mold. Magkalayo sila ng onti, theyr like “kambal sa Uma” haha!
After I saw the kambal sa tinapay ko, I decided that its payback time. I will not tolerate such uncleanliness, sure thing hindi nakakamatay ang molds when you eat it but given the health problems that we are facing right now I wouldn’t want to risk it. I went back to Jollibee Farmers, its two lrt station away from my office. Kung kasi after shift ko eh hindi ko na ito maabutan pang bukas, so I spent 24p for that. When I arrived at Jollibee, my first few words were, “Sinong manager on duty niyo?” (Mejo not-so-friendly-tone yan) pero ayoko rin naman kasi magmaganda, so when the manager faced me I told him that I will be returning the product that I bought that afternoon. He went inside inspected it then went back to me and apologize. He told me that they were not able to check the bread, its kahapon pa daw, but the bread they have that moment eh bago na daw lahat. I asked him, “so you’re always giving bread na hindi fresh?” to which he contested, “No mam, hindi lang po naman na check. Sorry po.” I asked, “So, ibabalik niyo ba yung payment ko or papalitan niyo nalang?” Sabi naman ni manager eh, “kayo po bahala, pili nalang po kayo ng iba or ibabalik po naming bayad.” Sabi ko naman, “hindi nalang, nawalan na ako ng gana. Pero bibili pa din ako kasi may nagpapabili sa akin.” Manager, “sige po mam pili lang po kayo.” Actually may gana pa ako at gutom na gutom pa din, buti nalang at di niya narinig na nagrumble ang tiyan ko. So I gave him my order and upuan na ako dahil sabi naman niya eh ibibigay niya nalang sa akin. After a few minutes dumating na siya dala ang take out ko, 1 ice craze, 1 large fries, and 1 spaghetti, to which I asked, “ magkano po lahat?” sabay abot ng bayad. Sabi naman ni manager, “ay sige po mam, wag niyo na pong bayaran.” Sabay tingin sa take out, “ay sabi ko 2 large fries.” Manager, “ ay dalawa po ba saglit lang po”
Pagdating ng isa pang large fries, inabot ko ulit ang bayad, at umiling ulit siya. I asked, “sure ka?” manager, “yes po mam, pasensya na po ha.” Sabi ko naman, “okay, thank you” sabay alis dahil baka magbago pa isip niya. Haha!
So ayun. I hate and love Jollibee at the same time. My 42p Jolly Hotdog was replaced by 1 large fries and 1 jolly spaghetti =)
