Oh, Please…

, , , , | Right | April 29, 2020

This exchange happens almost every day with different customers.

Me: “Hi. May I get you started with something to drink?”

Customer: *To their toddler* “Honey, can you tell the lady what you would like to drink? “

Toddler: “Chocolate milk!”

Customer: “It’s ‘chocolate milk, please.’ Remember, we use our manners.”

Toddler: “Chocolate milk, please.”

Me: “Okay, and for you?”

Customer: “A Coke.” 

No “please,” just exactly what they’d scolded their child for. I don’t think they’re being rude; I just find the exchange to be amusing every time it happens.
