Order Number One

| Fort Wayne, IN, USA | Food & Drink, Funny Names

(I used to work at a cold cut sub shop, and the names of the sandwiches are pretty straightforward — but we usually, for whatever reason, get weird variations of said sandwich names, even if the staff says it correctly. This happened more than I’d like to admit.)

Me: *as cashier* “Hello! How are you? What can I get you today?”

Older Woman: *looks at menu* “Hmmm…I’d like the number one, the Pee Pee, please.”

Me: *eyebrows slowly raise, cheerful smile keeping me from laughing* “Ah, the number one, Pepe.” *pronounced PEH-PAY* “All righty, anything else?”

Older Woman: “Yes, the Pee Pee, that’ll be all. Mmmm. That just sounds so good…”

Me: “Thank you for calling [Restaurant]; how may I assist you?”

Customer: “I want a reservation for [date] at [time].”

Me: *pulls up date on reservation system* “Fantastic! We do have availability—”

Customer: *cutting me off* “Great. I will see you then.”

Me: “Ma’am, before you go, I’m going to need a little bit of information to book a reservation for you.”

Customer: “Yeah. What do you need?”

Me: “Well, first I’m going to need your name…”

(This happens almost daily.)
