    Me: “Good morning, what can I get for you today?”

    Customer: “Hi, I’d like a large tea, with cream and sugar on the side.”

    Me: “Okay, just to clarify, the cream and sugar are both on the side?”

    Customer: “On the side means it’s not in the cup.”

    Me: “Okay, so they’re both on the side?”

    Customer: “ON THE SIDE MEANS THEY’RE NOT IN THE CUP!”

    Me: “Okay, so you have cream and sugar on the side.”

    Customer: “I DON’T WANT ANYTHING IN THE CUP!”

    Me: “Okay, so you have a large black tea with cream and sugar on the side. That will be [price], and you can pick your tea up at the end.”

    (I go make the drink, get the cream and sugar on the side, and give it to the customer.)

    Me: “Okay, one large black tea with cream and sugar on the side.”

    Customer: “So, there’s nothing in the cup, right?”

    Me: *speechless*
