Are You Hei?

, , , | Right | January 27, 2019

(I’m hard of hearing, and there is always a lot of noise in the restaurant where I work. Because of my condition, I usually work on the line preparing food, but today we are short cashiers and so I get pulled up to the cash register area.)

Me: “Hi! How’s it going? What can I get for you today?”

Customer: “I’d like [soup and sandwich combo] with a drink.”

Me: “For here or to go?”

Customer: “For here.”

Me: “Okay, and I need a name to put it under.”

Customer: “Janet.”

(As she is saying her name, the timer on the oven begins going off behind me and I don’t hear her clearly.)

Me: “The name is Heidi?”

Customer: *laughing* “How the h*** do you get Heidi from Janet?”

Me: “Do you have any daughters?”

(The customer had a good laugh, at least.)
