Peppered With Confusion, Part 2

| New York, NY, USA | Working | November 16, 2013

(My friend and I are at a popular sandwich shop. My friend is at the final part of her order.)

Friend: “May I have pepper and salt?”

(The worker looks at my friend with a confused look on his face. He doesn’t move.)

Friend: “Sir? Pepper and salt?”

(The worker slowly reaches his hand towards the green bell peppers, with the same confused look on his face.)

Friend: “No! Not that pepper. The pepper and salt, like—I can’t even…”

(The worker reaches his hand once more towards the green peppers. My friend at this point just starts whimpering. I try to chime in.)

Me: “No, not peppers, like you know, you shake it on?”

(A coworker looks over.)

Coworker: “Dude! She means the salt and pepper!”

Worker: “Oh! Why didn’t you just say that?”
