It’s Only A Paper Cup

| Canada | Bizarre

(A customer walks up to my till and orders a coffee.)

Me: “Alright, that’ll be $1.65. Is that for here or to go?”

Customer: “For here. Why did you ask me that?”

Me: “If it’s for here, we put it in a mug. If it’s to go, we put it in a paper cup.”

Customer: “Paper?”

Me: “Yep! A paper cup.”

Customer: “Paaaaper?”

Me: “Um, yes, is that what you’d prefer?”

Customer: “Paaaaaaper?”

Me: *thinking he might not know the difference* “Yes, see, here’s a paper cup, and here’s a mug.”

Customer: “Paaaaaaaaper?”

Me: “Paper cup it is!”

(I make him his drink and hand it to him. He stares at it, hands me the money, and nods.)

Customer: “Paaaaaaper!”
