Filip,

Restaurants make mistakes all the time. Not because they are thieves but because when your making up a lot of orders it is easy to mix things up. For them to have given J the wrong thing would be easy to understand - it happens and why you immediately thought I was calling them dishonest for suggesting this baffles me. Have you never heard the term "honest mistake"?

J, on the other hand, would have to be an idiot to be the one at fault - assumming the problem is he got the wrong thing. To think you ordered Oerbier ribs, hear yourself say "Oerbier ribs" but in fact say "Regular ribs", how screwed up in the head would you have to be to do that? He even said he pointed to the Oerbier ribs on the menu. Do you think he can't read the word Oerbier? For Jeremy to be wrong here would require that he be a moron or a liar. So here are the plausable options:

a) Jeremy was intentionally lying his ass off.

b) Sebrina was intentionally lying her ass off.

c) Jeremy thought he ordered something, but the words coming out of his mouth were not the words he thought he said.

d) An order got mixed up by the restaurant.

Filip - is there an e)? Please don't dodge the question, just answer in simple terms to avoid confusion. Do you think a, b, c or d offers the most likely explaination? Please just type one of those letters to reply.
