        I can count those as such, if prepped/cooked properly

          Home and Gardens bought a bit of butter.
          The butter that they bought was a bit bitter
          And made their batter bitter.
          But a bit of better butter makes better batter.
          So then they bought a bit of better butter
          Making all of their bitter batter better

            I'm sure they didn't count the bread in the net carbs. Either they left it out on purpose and didn't inform staff to leave it out, too, or the staff just didn't know or didn't think about it. Last option is most likely - they probably don't really have any idea what low carb means.

            I've had the cheese thing happen to me multiple times, and with butter: "Do you have real butter, or margarine?" "It's butter, see?" (shows me Spread)

              • That thing - people calling margarine butter annoys me. That has also happened to me in a restaurant. I hate fake food!!! Margarine tastes so awful I can't see how anyone would be proud of it like they seem to be, handing it out left right and centre. Gross.

                Its so CW. People are terrified of butter so they buy "marge" which tastes like phlegm but less salty and then they insult us butter lovers by pedalling it and calling it butter. My parents do this and they are reasonably intelligent and should know better.

                  • Had a co-worker bring in cinnamon rolls for her birthday.

                    I thanked her, but begged off having one. She said, "There is a tub of frosting for them. Just eat a bit of that with a spoon if you want to avoid the carbs."

                        As baffling as that is, it reminds me of when someone recently asked about my weight loss and I gave him a 2 minute briefing on Paleo/Primal, to which he responded "So what do you eat, just bread?". Does not compute.
                        I wish I liked to eat liver.

                              Aaaaaand this is why I go to extra pains to explain to non-majors biology students that carbohydrate = sugar = glucose = starches cause they break down into glucose. They hear all these words tossed around all the time and never really make the connection between them all.
