Flaky To The 9th Degree

| Christchurch, New Zealand |

Customer: “Two supremes, please.”

Me: “Okay, and what type of crust?”

Customer: “Oh, that nice one. I had it the other day. It was thin and very yummy.”

Me: “Thin and crispy?”

(The customer starts making hand gestures, pinching her thumb and forefinger together.)

Customer: “It was thin and yummy. We had it the other day.”

Me: “We have a thin crust. Is that it?”

Customer: “That must be it.”

Me: “Okay, that’ll be $23.80.”

Customer: “What? That much?”

Me: “Yes, they’re $11.90 each.”

Customer: “They were only $8 each the other day.”

Me: “Was it a flaky base? We had a promotion for that, but it ended yesterday.”

Customer: “Yes! That was it. But it said it was until the end of the month.”

Me: “The promotion ended yesterday.”

Customer: “But it said until the 31st.”

Me: “I’m sorry. What said that?”

Customer: “The piece of paper.”

Me: “Oh, was it a coupon?”

Customer: “Uh… yes.”

Me: “I can’t give you the discount without the code on the coupon.”

Customer: “Oh. Hang on. Try 54261.”

Me: “No, that didn’t work.”

Customer: “Oh, there was another one. I think it had a 9 in it.”

Me: “I need the whole code.”

Customer: “It had a 9.”

Me: “I can’t do anything without the code.”

Customer: “But it had a 9!”
