Ain't That a Shame


"Are you ready to order?" asked the server. It was our first time at a new restaurant and everything looked tempting to me. Even the sugar packets looked good.

"I'd like the fish tacos," I said. "But what kind of tortillas do they come with? I'm gluten-free."

"They come with corn tortillas," she said. "But we can also do them as lettuce wraps."

"I'm kind of feeling the corn tortillas," I said.

"The lettuce wraps are healthier," she said, matter-of-factly. I raised my eyebrows at my husband across the table.

"I'll have the corn, thanks," I replied.


She took my husband's order and left.

"I'm not sure, but I think I've just been menu-shamed," I said.

He laughed. "Is that a thing?"

"Apparently, it is now," I said.
