Free Of Gluten, Free Of Thought, Part 2

, , , | Right | March 28, 2011

(I’m packing a carry-out order for someone who ordered two of each item: one regular, one gluten-free.)

Me: “There’s your order. It’s all ready to go.”

Customer: “Which of the chickens is gluten-free?”

Me: “The one on top. I put a little gluten-free sticker on it.”

Customer: “Oh. Which of the soups is gluten-free?”

Me: “Well, I put the sticker on this one. But the soup actually has no gluten to begin with.”

Customer: “Oh. But I can eat gluten. It’s my friend that can’t.”

Me: “I see. Well, neither of the soups has wheat products, so you’re fine.”

Customer: “Oh.” *seems to be waiting* “Shouldn’t you put the gluten back in mine?”
