And A Fish (Out Of Water) Burger

, | Working | December 28, 2013

(I am English, but live in the USA. While driving one day I get thirsty, and go through the drive-thru of a popular burger chain.)

Worker: *through the speaker* “Welcome to [Fast Food Restaurant]. May I take your order?”

Me: “Can I get a bottle of water, please?”

Worker: “Could you repeat that, ma’am?”

Me: “Water. A bottle of water.”

Worker: “What was that?”

Me: “Water. Bottled water. Uh, to drink? Water?”

Worker: “Sorry, ma’am. Can you repeat that?”

(I figure the worker can’t understand my English accent, and try to (badly) imitate the local American accent.)

Me: “Can aaah get some waaah-trrrrr?”

Worker: “Sure! One water, that’ll be $1.10, first window!”
