Panera Noodle

[On my lunch break at Panera.]
Asian Man: *stands right over me* I need to make a complaint.
Me: *slurping noodles*  o.o
Asian Man: Why are you eating noodle when you are here?
Me: They’re so delicious!
Asian Man: *laughing* You should not be eating noodle here. Iiii should be eating noodle! You’re not Asian, right?
Me: You could tell by the way I’m using these chopsticks, huh?

Best customer experience I’ve had at Panera… probably ever. :P

  1. If he only knew how much of your life that you spend watching, talking about, thinking about, and dreaming about Korean Dramas, he would never have suggested that you aren’t Asian! Did I say “Korean Dramas”? I’m sorry I meant to say “Korean SOAP OPERAS!” (youhaveangiehookedonthiscrack)
    Oh, and by-the-way….. LUVUBYE! :D

    1. I understood what you were talking about, up until the phrase “soap operas.” Now I have no response, because we clearly are not talking about the same things.

  2. Funny…but now I’m salivating thinking of the salads I used to get at Panera in Vegas. I never got noodles, so never had the Asian man experience you did. But I don’t have a Panera here to even try to have a noodle experience. Sigh.

    1. Well, the funny thing is, Panera doesn’t have noodles. I think that’s why the Asian man was so amused. :P The closest thing we have to noodles is in the chicken noodle soup, but that doesn’t count. I bring my own “Bowl of Noodles” in the spicy kimchi flavour so I only have to buy half a lunch on break and save some money. And they are delicious! I got a coworker hooked and now she wants to pay me to bring her some!

      I’m sorry about your lack of Panera. :( I think Panera is a wonderful place and there should be one on every corner, like Starbucks, except we’re better. :P
