October Theme Of The Month: Halloween!

For Some, Childhood Never Ends

, | Glen Burnie, MD, USA | Food & Drink

(While waiting for my order inside a fast food restaurant, I overhear this conversation between the employee working the drive-thru window and the customer at the speaker.)

Employee: “Welcome to [restaurant]. How may I help you?”

Customer: “I need a hamburger kids’ meal. Also, could you put cheese on that?”

Employee: “Okay, so you want a cheeseburger kids’ meal?”

Customer: “No, just a hamburger with cheese on it.”

Employee: “Ma’am, if you put cheese on a hamburger, it becomes a cheeseburger. So, do you want a hamburger or a cheeseburger?”

Customer: “Well, then, I guess I want a cheeseburger.”

Employee: “Okay, and is this kids’ meal for a boy or a girl?”

Customer: “Does it matter?”

Employee: “Not to me, ma’am.”

(The customer leaves the drive-thru as I leave the restaurant parking lot and she ends up behind me at a red light, happily eating her happy meal while driving.)
