(I work in a cafe where you can get 1/2 a sandwich served with a soup or salad.)

Customer: I want a ham & Swiss cheese sandwich on whole grain with mustard.

Me: Alright ma’am, would you like a whole one or half with a soup or salad?

Customer: I dunno, let me go ask my mom.

(The customer was in her mid-40s but I assumed she was getting food for her mother. Usually this is fine, but there is a line forming, seeing how it’s almost lunch.)

Her: Half with a soup.

Me: Okay, & on that sandwich, do you want lettuce, tomato, & –
Her *interrupting me*: No! *starts poking the air between us & raising her voice* I said I wanted a ham & Swiss sandwich with mustard and lettuce on whole grain.

Me: Okay… Anything to drink?

Her: 2 drinks.

(After getting her to pay an whatnot, I’m putting away the cash in my drawer.)

Her: Where do I get the drinks?

Me *pointing*: Down the hall.

Her: You know, you could be a bit nicer! This is my first time here and it is Christmas.

(I didn’t say anything, but I wanted to point out to her that it is the Christmas season, but there were still two day left until Christmas, so it wasn’t Christmas.)
