Caterer Delivers Wrong Pasta Salad

"We always use City Market for catering because they have never let me down," Stacy Thole told reporters as she fought back tears. "I can't believe they would do something like this."

Tri Color Bowtie Pasta Salad has always been a staple at Widgets Corp LLC, Inc. catered lunch meetings. No one is sure how City Market could have delivered Basil Pesto Tortellini instead.

Thole angrily called the caterer several times, explaining, "The meeting is going to start in three minutes and I don't have the right pasta salad. Heads are definitely going to roll."

Attendees felt the regional team meeting just wasn't the same. "The pasta salad is by far the best part of lunch," said Tom Searson. "I usually make three or four trips to the serving line." Kevin Gaydos added, "That stuff makes my brain work so much faster." When asked how the tortellini compared, Jeff Raynes said, "They're both good but I really like the colors in the other one."

Thole really feels like she let the team down. "I know the pasta salad makes meetings so much more productive," she said.

Due to the catering error, Widgets has had to reduce the first quarter projected earnings.

No one from City Market was available for comment.
