What Makes a Club a Club?

So lunchtime. People get busy, and sometimes one person gets tasked with running out with a pile of cash, and picking up sandwiches for others. It’s a team-building thing. You know, make the newest kid on the block want to work hard so that we grow so that we hire someone else and then THAT person is the new kid on the block. The American Way. So here’s the situation: Some gal in the office, who, I think, just took her bitch pills this morning, ordered a “Club” sandwich. This guy comes back with a turkey sandwich with bacon. Apparently, it didn’t have 3 pieces of bread, slathered in mayo with lettuce and tomato. And therefore, not a “Club”. To stand up for this guy, I asked her if it had bacon – it did. My point – bacon = club. Everything else is just window dressing. After popping a couple more bitch pills, she traded her “turkey sandwich with bacon” to her a co-worker (who happened to be eating a turkey and bacon salad… I think it was called a “club salad”).

Who was right? Does bacon = club?
