I Say Toh-May-Toh, You Say Burger

| Williamsburg, VA, USA | Food & Drink, Language & Words

(I am ordering fast-food with my friend. He does not like tomato or pickles, and I do not like onions or pickles.)

Friend: “I’ll have a burger with no tomato and no pickles.”

(The employee takes rest of his order, and then it’s my turn.)

Me: “I’ll have a tomato; no pickle, no onions.”

Employee: “What?”

Me: “I’ll have a tomato; no pickle, no onions.”

Employee: “What?”

(I get agitated, wondering what’s so difficult.)

Me: “I want a tomato; no pickle, no onions!”

Friend: “Dude, what are you saying?”

Me: “I said I want a tomato with no pickle and no onions—”

(I finally realize what I’ve been saying.)

Me: “Wait… wow… sorry! I’ll have a burger, with no pickle and no onions.”

(We all burst out laughing at my silliness.)
