Fucking up

Man’s search for Tater Tots.

 

I’m going through a period right now where I’m fucking up left and right. Not major fuck-ups. But just those situations where you play the fool.

I’ll give you a typical example.

Today I went to this cheese steak shop on Bancroft. GREAT food. I love EVERYTHING on the menu.

But I’m broke (as usual).The only thing I can afford are the Tater Tots. $2.50 out the door. And I’m not complaining. Because I LOVE Tater Tots.

So I’m sitting there at the cheese steak shop waiting for my number to be called. And then the guy behind the counter calls out my number. At least I THINK he calls out my number (I’m hard of hearing as well as being an idiot).

“Tater Tots?” I say.

“Yes!” he says.

(at least that’s what I THINK he says)

So I grab the bag and walk about 15 blocks to a nice quiet spot where I can eat my Tater Tots in peace

But when I opened up the bag — much to my surprise — there were no Tater Tots in the bag. Instead it was a bacon double cheese burger. AND fries. I had inadvertently grabbed somebody else’s order.

I felt bad about it. But what could I do at that point except EAT it??

It’s weird. Sometimes you fuck up and you STILL come out ahead.
