(When slicing food at our deli, we must change our disposable gloves when switching between handling meat or cheese. As such, I try to slice as much of one as I can before switching to the other without getting pushy, since it moves the line faster and uses less gloves. However, this exact conversation happens multiple times a day.)

Me: *loud and clearly* “Hello, welcome to the deli, are you ordering any cheese today?”
Customer: “Half a pound of lean ham.”

(Without question, I change my gloves and get what the customer asks.)

Me: “Anything else for you today?”
Customer: “Quarter pound of swiss cheese.”
Me: *internally screaming*
