Well, It’s Tuesday Afternoon Somewhere!

(I work at a restaurant that has just sent out coupons in the mail. The only reason I know these coupons exist is because I have gotten some in the mail myself. The coupons say clearly, in large print, “Only usable Monday through Friday, 8:00 am to 1:00 pm.” These are our slowest times so I guess the owner is trying to make those times more appealing. One Saturday night, — SATURDAY NIGHT — the following phone call takes place at this restaurant.)

Me: *on the phone* “Hello. Thanks for calling [Restaurant]. How can I help you?”

Caller: “Hi. My family and I were thinking about coming to your place tonight for dinner. We just got coupons in the mail, and I wanted to make sure that we were going to be able to use them.”

Me: “Do they say they’re only usable Monday through Friday, 8:00 am to 1:00 pm?”

Caller: *hesitantly* “Yes.”

Me: “Then… No?”

(Then, he hung up on me.)

Me: “Good talk!”
