    (I work at a coffee shop in a botanical garden. I am serving a couple that has difficulty speaking English.)

    Customer #1: “Also, can we have a kidnap?”

    Me: “I beg your pardon?”

    Customer #2: “Can we have a kidnap?”

    Me: “You…want me to kidnap you?”

    Customer #1: “No! No! I want…a kidnap!”

    Customer #2: “You know, kidnap!”

    (She forms a square with her fingers.)

    Me: “Oh, do you want a napkin?”

    Customer #1: “Yes, kidnap!”
