    Something Fishy Going On Here

    | NY, USA | Extra Stupid, Food & Drink

    (I work in a sandwich shop. It is just my boss and me in the shop when a customer comes in.)

    Me: “Hi! What can I get for you today?”

    Customer: “Hi. Could I please have a medium tuna sandwich, please?”

    Me: “Tuna fish? All right.”

    Customer: “Wait, it’s tuna FISH?”

    (Thinking she thought I meant simply slabs of fish, I explained what our product was.)

    Me: “I’m sorry, I don’t mean just pieces of fish. It’s tuna salad – albacore tuna fish mixed with mayonnaise and celery.”

    Customer: “Yeah, but it’s still fish, and I hate fish. Why don’t you sub shops just have tuna? Why is it always tuna fish everywhere I go?”

    (My boss had to make the woman’s sandwich, because I couldn’t fathom what was going on.)
