I Say, Old Bean!

, , , | Right | April 30, 2020

I am in the car with my mother driving. We pull up to a fast food place; the dining area is already closed but the drive-thru is open all night. My mum hates drive-thru because English is not our native language and she sometimes has a hard time understanding everything through the speaker.

Employee: “What can I get for you?”

Mum: “A large Coke and a bean burrito, please.”

Employee: “That was a large Coke and a beef burrito?”

Mum: “No, a bean burrito.”

Employee:Beef burrito?”

That goes on for a while, until my mum spells it out.

Mum: “B-E-A-N!”

Employee: “Oh, so, one bean burrito. Not beef. Got it. Anything else?”

Mum: “Yes, one beef burrito, please.”

She actually didn’t realize how weird the conversation was, not even when I burst out laughing hysterically and the employee gave her a death stare.
