Vanilla Just Doesn’t Cut It Anymore

(I work at an ice cream shop in a tourist town that’s busy even during the colder months. As such, we get a lot of people in, some not so bright. We have an extensive menu, and a lot of options, so as far as sundaes go there is a minimum of about 180 possible combinations, not including if a customer asks for multiple toppings. One day, I am training a new coworker, and I come across this one customer…)

Customer: “Can I get a sundae?”

Me: “Okay, would you like that small, medium, or large?”

Customer: “Um, small, I guess.”

Me: “And what toppings would you like on that, or did you just want a plain cup of vanilla ice cream?”

Customer: “I said a sundae.”

Me: “Yes, sir, I need to know what toppings you would like. We have a list of flavors on the menu right next to you.”

Customer: “You know, with the hot fudge and peanuts and whipped cream… You know what? Never mind! I’ll just get a medium cone of vanilla!”

(The customer stormed off and let his friend finish the rest of the order and pay. I’m still not sure how I was supposed to know all of that from just the word “sundae,” but I’m sure with enough experience I’ll learn how to read minds!)
