RE: Abbreviations for Deli Sandwiches
Being a ham operator, and listening to the 'police' scanner, all you hear is abbreviations. Seems half the time they complicate something so simple into too much jargon (Which is why they abbreviated it in the first place to avoid excess jargon). But if your going to go this route on food, as most places do, H for Ham, J for Jalapeno, T for turkey, DLX or DX for Deluxe (lettuce, tomatoe and Mayo), W/E for with everything (ketchup, mustard, pickles and onions), M for Mayo, GL (for get lost, cook hitting on the waitress), ++ for extras, Then there's using the colored picks to designate how the food was prepared so the waitress can figure out what they ordered (Green pick on top for Extra Lettuce, on the side for no lettuce, at a 45 for light... Same goes for brown for the beans, red for meat, double red ones for the tomatoes).. Each place has it's own rules.. And hopefully they pull the pics before they serve the food! Post us your menu, I'm pretty sure you'll get several ideas on how to handle your ordering specs..
