(I’m working the drive thru during a closing shift. We’ve slowed down quite a bit, and most orders even then are for our seasonal mint-flavored shake. A couple drives up to the window.)
Me: Hi, welcome to [Restaurant]. What can I get for you?
Customer: I’d like two extra large mint shakes.
Me: I’m sorry, but the biggest size our shakes go to is large.
Customer: Oh. Well, I’ll have two extra large…
Me: We do not have ‘extra large.’ We have small, medium, or large. That’s it.
Customer: You don’t have extra large?
Me: No.
Customer: How about ‘monster’?
Me: No.
Customer: What about ‘giant’?
(From the passenger’s seat I can hear his companion say “Just stop it” and I have to take a deep breath.)
Me: No. The biggest size that we go up to is a LARGE.
Customer, after at least five seconds: Alright. I’ll have two large mint shakes.
Me: Your total is [total].
(My manager cashed it out for me and was nice enough to let me sit in the back for a few minutes.)
