Peanuts Are High In Irony

(A man comes in with his son, who looks to be about nine years old.)

Customer: “Hi, do you guys cook anything in peanut oil? My son has a peanut allergy, and he can’t eat anything with peanuts.”

Manager: “No, we don’t. He can have everything here except the salad, which has almond in it.”

Customer’s Son: “Ooh dad, chocolate soda!”

Customer: “What about the chocolate soda?”

Manager: “Oh no, he can’t have that.”

Customer: “Sorry, bud, how about the root beer instead?”

(He orders their food and while they wait, his phone goes off.)

Customer’s Phone: “IT’S PEANUT BUTTER JELLY TIME. PEANUT BUTTER JELLY TIME!”

(He quickly answers it while my coworkers and I are trying not to laugh. He looks a little embarrassed when he hangs up.)

Customer: “Ha, sorry about that. I guess I should change my ring tone, huh?”

Me: “No, I loved the irony!”
