A Difficult Combo

, , , | Right | February 26, 2018

(I am answering a take-out call.)

Me: “Hello, this is [Chinese Restaurant].”

Customer: “Yeah, can I order some food?”

Me: “Yes, go ahead.”

Customer: “Do you have sweet and sour chicken?”

Me: “Yeah, we’ve got the entree and combo meal.”

Customer: “What’s the difference?”

Me: “The combo meal is for one person and comes with rice. The entree is double the size, but doesn’t come with rice.”

Customer: “If I order the entree, what does it come with?”

Me: “Just the chicken; if you want rice, you have to order separate.”

Customer: “Oh, God, why do you have to make it difficult? Just give me some fried rice with it, then. Do you have General Gau’s chicken?”

Me: “Yeah. Same situation, though; it’s combo or entree.”

Customer: “What’s the difference with this one?”

Me: “The same thing. Combo meal is one person, entree is bigger.”

Customer: *sighs* “Get me the entree. Does that come with rice?”

Me: “Nope, you’ll have to order rice separate. Did you want—”

Customer: *upset* “You know what? You’re making this way too difficult.” *hangs up*
