A Bit Too Beefy

| Santa Clara, CA, USA | Working | March 29, 2013

(I go up to the deli counter looking for some sliced roast beef. After much struggling, I manage to flag down an employee.)

Me: “Hi, I’d like some roast beef.”

Employee: “Like, how do you mean?”

Me: “You know, roast beef. Like the kind you put on a french dip sandwich.”

Employee: “Ah…”

(He then walks out from behind the counter, and takes me to the packaged meat section. He leads me to a beef tenderloin.)

Employee: “…Like this?”

Me; “Err, no, you can’t really put that on a sandwich. I’m looking for sliced roast beef.”

Employee: “Ohh, I see.” *holds up a thin steak* “So like this?”

Me: *speechless*
