    A-Paul-ing Service

    | Carpinteria, CA, USA | Funny Names

    (I am making drinks and I notice a small mocha for Paul. We have a regular customer named Paul who always orders a small mocha, but at that moment I couldn’t remember whether or not he liked it with whipped cream.)

    Me: *calling out* “Paul? Did you want whipped cream on your mocha?”

    Customer: *not a regular* “Yes, I wanted whipped cream.”

    (I realize that this might be a drink for a different customer also named Paul. I add the whipped cream and hand it off with a smile.)

    Me: “Here you go, a small mocha with whipped cream. Have a nice day, Paul.”

    Customer: “I ordered a large.”

    Me: “Oh, I’m sorry. Let me remake that for you.”

    (I make a new drink, figuring that one of my co-workers might have grabbed the wrong size in the rush.)

    Me: “Here’s your large mocha with whipped cream. Sorry for the mix-up, Paul.”

    Customer: “I ordered a pumpkin spice latte.”

    (I start my third attempt at making a drink for this customer.)

    Customer: “…and my name isn’t Paul.”
