And I thought the "peanut allergy" was rediculous!
Below is an email I received today at work. I did not edit it at all:
"My husband visited your store in CHarlotte today and saw the oatmealpancakes. He was hoping it was something I might be able to eat. Would I be able to eat them, despite the following allergies:
Flours: White, Wheat, Kamut, Spelt
Melons, all kinds
MSG (Found in Accent and many prepared foods and snacks)
Nitrates, found commonly in prepared meats and spice mixes
Sugar, White and Brown, and Cane juice
Also, would I be able to eat a turkey burger or another meat dish possible?Thank you for your time."
Poor thing! I wrote back to her and let her know that the pancakes would not fit into her diet, but the turkey burger would work, as long as she ordered it without the bun, the condiments and the tomato.
Her list of allergies is longer than the list of things that I am NOT allergic to.
I just realized that she listed all of her allergies in alphabetical order, too. Hmmm.
