I recently experienced a mortifying moment with my boyfriend so I want some cheering up :) I can't stop replaying the scene & I just wanted to die on the spot...

I used to work in the produce section of a supermarket when I was 19. I worked with this kid Jay. He was 21, so he could buy booze, and on Sunday nights it was just me and him closing with no direct supervision. He'd bring in nips of Jack Daniels and we'd drink jack and cokes, smoke weed in the cooler, mess around with the cute girls from the florist department, etc. Anything but work, haha.
Anyway, the other ritual was that we would order subs from the sub shop in the plaza next to the supermarket. We'd switch off on who would go to pick them up, and the other would phone in the order.
One day it was my turn to get the subs. Jay says "I put it under the name McFly", with a smirk, knowing I'd look stupid. I rolled my eyes and was like "whatever, you're a dick", and laughed, then left to get the subs.
So I get there and go to the counter. I try to hold my laughter and keep a straight face, which was hard cuz I was a little buzzed, haha. I say "Hi... I have a pickup order under 'McFly'." The girl looks at the bag and looks puzzled. She says "um... I have one for... Mac[XXXX]..." (My real last name, which has that same "Mc" sound in the beginning) I was like "Wha--... awww...yeah...that's me." I felt so dumb. Top notch burn on Jay's part, credit where it's due. I got back to the store, and I look in the big window by the produce section, and there he is stacking apples. He looked up, and I'll never forget the grin on his face, hahaha. Had to applaud that one, but I felt like a total jackass😆0
