(Two of my coworkers are running a third coworker’s table when this exchange occurs.)

Coworker #1: *puts roast beef down in front of the customer*

Customer: “No, I ordered the roast beef.” *looks at [Coworker #2]* “Is this not the roast beef?”

Coworker #2: “Yes, it is.”

Customer: “I ordered roast beef, though.”

Coworker #2: *getting increasingly confused* “That… is the roast beef?”

Customer:No, I ordered the roast beef. Oh. I mean meatloaf. I want meatloaf.”

(Of course, he acted as if it was his server’s fault for not reading his mind and knowing that “roast beef” actually means meatloaf.)
