What About A Sausage? – Major cringe moment

….the table we sat around went quiet.

I closed my eyes and shook my head. ‘God, had he really said that?’

A few moments before, the waitress had asked for our orders. We’d all given them, my sister on the other hand was taking a lifetime to make up her mind.

She was also going through her teenage vegetarian phase. Mostly to piss off my parents.

She looked up from the menu. “There’s nothing here I can eat.”

My dad read back through the menu, and was met with a “No. No. No.”

“She’s a vegetarian now,” my mum said.

Then came the classic.

“What about a sausage?”

Major cringe moment.

That’s what happens when you don’t know what you’re doing, or know what to say.

I’ve got you covered in my new book selling course. You can get it here.
