Was Not Bready For That

, , , | Right | May 13, 2020

Our sandwich shop is extremely busy tonight and we have run out of bread.

Customer: “I would like two footlong steak sandwiches, please.”

Me: “Sorry, ma’am, we are completely out of bread tonight.”

Customer: “Oh… Then I would like one footlong steak sandwich.”

Me: “No… We’re out of bread.”

I fumble, trying to think of a way to state it more simply.

Me: “We… We’re out of bread!”

The customer stands there with her mouth gaping open for a while.

Customer: “So, you can’t make any sandwiches?”

Me: “Not without bread, no. I can still serve salads and pizzas, though.”

Customer: “Oh.”

The customer, maintaining a dumbfounded look on her face, sauntered out the door.
