(I work in a local bakery and café that has gelato. Occasionally we’ll have Italian ice cream in stock, but we’ve been out of stock for months, even though it’s still on the menu board. I like to warn customers before they order.)

Customer: *with her daughter* “We’re going to have some of your ice cream.”

Me: *seeing the future* “Just so you know, we only have gelato.”

Customer: “She’ll have a lemon ice.”

Me: *beginning to worry* “Sorry, we’re out of that; all we have is the gelato. “

Customer: “Oh, okay.” *turns to daughter* “Honey, do you want a vanilla custard?”

Me: *weakly, losing hope for humanity* “We only have the gelato…”
