This Cheese Has Been Around

| Pennsylvania, USA | Uncategorized

(I’ve been helping this customer for about two minutes.)

Me: “Can I get you anything else?”

Customer: “Yes, give me half a pound of the philandering cheese.”

Me: “I’m sorry?”

Customer: “The philandering cheese!”

Me: “Uh, which one?”

Customer: “The philandering Swiss cheese!”

(She points at the wall behind the counter where we display the cheeses. I turn around and immediately realize which cheese she means.)

Me: “Oh, Finlandia Swiss!”

Customer: “That’s what I said! Philandering Swiss!”
