Okay, if Achilles’ heel was the only mortal part of his body, then wouldn’t being shot there with an arrow have the same effect being shot in the heel would have on a mortal? Like, was the arrow poisoned or did it get infected or something? I think most people would survive being shot in the heel with an arrow.

Like Brandon said, it was a poisoned arrow, but! … … Wouldn’t that just rot his ankle off? “Oooh, my foot hurts, I’m so shkared!”

Yeah. I doubt many ancient Greeks had an extensive knowledge of how poison affects the way the human body works, so poison infecting the one mortal part of his body probably worked for them. Not that it matters. It is mythology, after all.

Please fire me. I’m a waitress and I had a young man pull me aside and ask to see a manager because his food was too hot when I served it to him. He got a free dessert and I got no tip.

This kind of nonsense really happens. Like… all the time.

I had this…

I once had a lady complain that her chicken was too juicy. We also regularly have people bring back their sandwiches because the cheese isn’t melted.
