This happened back in the ’80s. I was in my early teens. We were on vacation and went into a fast food place that has a jingle that lists the ingredients in their signature burger. They had a sale on cheese burgers, 29 cents, regular 69 cents, but hamburgers were still 49 cents.

Cashier: Can I help you?

Me: Hi. I’d like a cheese burger with no cheese, and a root beer.

Cashier: So, you want a hamburger?

Me: No, I’d like a cheese burger with no cheese, and a root beer, please.

Cashier: *puzzled look*

Other cashier: *moves beside first cashier and speaks quietly* The cheese burgers are on sale. The hamburgers are not. It’s less money to get a cheese burger without cheese.

Cashier: *look of understanding* Oh, OK.

The rest of the transaction went smoothly.
