Time Waits For No Ham

, , , , | Right | September 23, 2010

(I work at a gas station that offers made-to-order sandwiches. A customer uses a computer to place their order and gets an order number that is called once their sandwich is made).

Customer: “I’m here for my ham sandwich.”

Me: “Okay. What is your order number?”

Customer: “Here, it’s 433. I know I’m a few minutes late.”

Me: “Sir, that order was ready three hours ago. We threw it away when it sat for half an hour.”

Customer: “But it’s only 4:40. It has only been seven minutes.”

Me: “That is your order number, not the time you are supposed to pick up your order.”

Customer: “Oh, I was wondering why the time didn’t have the dots between the hour and minutes!”
