Customer: “I want a vanilla iced latte.”

Cashier: “Okay, anything else?”

Customer: “No.”

(I make the drink for the customer and give it to her.)

Me: “Here you are, ma’am.”

Customer: “What is this? It isn’t a vanilla iced latte!”

Me: “Yes, it is, ma’am.”

Customer: “What? No! I said I wanted a vanilla iced LA…TEA!”

Me: “I’m not sure what you mean… We do have iced tea.”

Customer: “I wanted a LA-TEA!”

Customer’s Husband: “She wants an iced coffee.”

Customer: “Yes! Why are you people so stupid?! I always say the wrong thing. You should know by now what I want!”
