I used to work in a Japanese restaurant, and everyone thinks they know the right way to eat this stuff, and everyone eats it differently, so I’m used to odd special requests.

One day this guy comes in by himself, orders a couple maki, and a side of mayonnaise. He’s very specific – he wants like a little ramekin filled with it.

That’s a new one on me, but we use mayo in some of our sauces, and the customer is always right so… I hand him the mayonnaise. I take off, kind of forgetting about it until I walk by his table, and he’s eating the mayo by the spoonful in between bites of sushi.

Don’t people know cellulite is the main ingredient in mayonnaise?

    Eww, but to each his own.

    I used to have a regular at McCormick’s that would get a burger and have us deconstruct it for him. The meat on the same plate as the fries, the bun on its own plate, the pickles onion and tomato on another plate… but he always ate them all together so it literally made no sense what-so-ever. Maybe he was just messing with us all.

    That is foul…I’m white and can barely stand mayo or Miracle Whip

    Jen, I suggest you snack on spoonfuls of mayonnaise before bed tonight. Call me in the morning.
