How Do I Explain This Monosyllabically?

, , , | Right | April 18, 2020

I work at a popular chain store. Right now, we are doing a deal where if you buy something in the morning, you can return after 2:00 pm and get a cold medium drink for $2. This customer comes in at 1:50 pm and throws a receipt at me.

Customer: “COFFEE!”

Me: “I’m sorry, sir, I can’t ring you out for the deal for another ten minutes.”

Customer: “COFFEE!”

Me: “Sir, the register will not allow me to ring you out for the deal until the clock on it reads 2:00 pm.”

Customer: “COF. FEE. RECEIPT. COFFEE!”

Manager: “Sir, she cannot physically give you that deal for another ten minutes.”

The customer snatches up the receipt and leaves. Ten minutes later, the guy comes back and throws his receipt at me again.

Customer: “COFFEE!”

Me: “Okay, a medium iced coffee—”

Customer: “NO. BIG. BIG COFFEE. HOT!”

Me: “Sir, the $2 deal is only for medium cold drinks.”

Customer: “NO. BIG COFFEE. HOT. NO ROOM!”

Manager: “Sir, come with me.”

My manager leads him off to explain what the deal was. He ended up getting pissed off and leaving, still yelling just one- and two-syllable words.
