All Types Of Cannoli Are Delicious

, , , , | Right | July 25, 2019

(I work in a grocery store bakery in a small town as a cake decorator, and one of our best selling items is a freshly-filled cannoli. We fill plain shells topped with powdered sugar or chocolate-dipped shells. A customer comes up to the counter and requests two cannoli. I grab a container and ask if he’d like the plain or chocolate-dipped shells. He smirks at me, looks around him, and leans in closer to answer.)

Customer: “I’ll have one Caucasian and one African American.”

(I pause and automatically raise an eyebrow. He looks at me expectantly, and then after a few seconds of silence starts to look nervous.)

Customer: “Right? Right?”

Me: “I’m sorry… You wanted what?”

Customer: “Uh…” *looking around again*

Me: “I think you said one vanilla and one chocolate; does that sound correct?”

(He blushed, stammering out an affirmative, and didn’t look up at me when I handed him his dessert. I wasn’t sorry to see him leave and I haven’t seen him since.)
