I am a student worker at one of the on-campus restaurants at Rochester Institute of Technology. I am working the pasta shift one night, and a customer appears and orders some pasta.

Me: Would you like some sauce with that?
Customer: I’ll try this brown sauce.

I like to say the names of the ingredients customers order so that 1. I can be corrected if I mishear them, 2. I can entertain myself a little, and 3. I can teach ignorant customers in cases like these.

Me: Meat sauce!
Me: (stops serving the sauce) Vegetarian?
Customer: Yes.
Me: I saved you!
