Half A Brain And A Pound Foolish

, , , , | Right | February 7, 2011

Me: “Would you like to try our new Texas Toast Bacon Cheese Thickburger?”

Customer: “Nope. I want a… I’m not sure what it is called. But it has BBQ sauce, bacon, cheese and all that.”

Me: “Okay, that is our Texas Toast Bacon Cheese Thickburger.”

Customer: “Yeah, sure.”

Me: “Okay, would you like to add fries and a drink for a combo?”

Customer: “Nope, no combo.”

Me: “Okay, would you like the quarter, third, or half-pound for that?”

Customer: “For what?”

Me: “The size of the meat patty; you can get either the quarter, third, or half-pound.”

Customer: “I’m not stupid; I can read a sign. Is the half-pound the biggest?”

Me: “Yes, sir.”

Customer: “So, the quarter-third is next size down?”

Me: “No, sir. Those are two different sizes. The third is smaller than the half, but larger than the quarter. The quarter is smallest of all.”

Customer: “Oh, okay. I will have the quarter-third.”

(I contemplate for a moment, then ring him up for a third-pound.)

Me: “Okay, is that going to complete your order today?”

Customer: “What about some fries and a coke?”
