Soda-Fried Chicken

(I have just dropped my wife off at work on a Saturday morning. I am hungry so decide to stop at a restaurant chain for something to eat. It is too late for one of their breakfasts, so I decide to go for an early lunch. This exchange happens:)

Cashier: “Hi, what can I get you?”

Me: “Yeah, hi… Can I get… uh… a… [chicken meal that comes with dip], please?”

Cashier: “Would you like the meal?”

Me: “Yes, please.”

Cashier: “What drink would you like?”

Me: “Uh… a… Coke, please.”

Cashier: “And which dip?”

Me: *not really paying attention* “Coke!”

Cashier: “Pardon? I asked which dip?” *laughing now*

Me: *embarrassed* “Oh! SORRY! No dip, please.”

Cashier: “Okay, that will be [price].”

Me: *as I am paying her* “I don’t think my chicken would taste very nice dipped in Coke!”

Cashier: *laughing* “Yeah, go ahead and try it and tell me how it works out!”

(When my food arrives:)

Cashier: “Here you go, sir!”

Me: “Thank you! I don’t think I’ll be dipping my chicken in Coke after all!”

Cashier: *laughs* “Enjoy your meal!”

(I felt really silly, but I’m glad I was able to brighten this young lady’s day!)
