(I work in the deli department of a grocery store. I got a call from a customer asking about the tamales she had purchased)

Me: “Deli Department, this is [Name] how can I help you?”

Customer: “Yes, I’d like to know how to heat the tamales I got from you guys. The ones that come in the husk”

Me: “There should actually be some heating instructions right on the package”

Customer: “They didnt come in a package, they came in a husk!”

The only way a tamale can leave our deli is if it is in a package. But instead of explaining the difference between a package and a husk, I just instructed her how to heat them while trying not to laugh
