It’s A Tall Order

| Shanghai, China | Working | May 5, 2017

(I am a regular at this particular coffee store, and I know they sometimes have difficulty understanding the order, so I always make sure I enunciate very clearly and don’t speak too fast. Also, I always order the same drink, so by now most of the employees know what I want without me even having to formally order. However one day…)

Me: “Hi, I’d like a tall Caramel Frappucino, for here, please.”

Employee: “Oh, frappucino. Which flavor?”

Me: “Caramel. Tall, please, and for here.”

Employee: “Which size?”

Me: “Tall. For here.”

Employee: “Okay, for here, or do you need a bag?”

Me: “…for here, thank you.”

Employee: “All right, your total is [amount], and your order will be ready soon. Please wait over there.”

(I ended up getting the wrong drink in the wrong size, but I decided not to have it remade since I was in a hurry.)
