Deja Bun

, | The Netherlands | Working | October 4, 2012

Me: “I’d like a [name] bun, please.”

Employee: “Sure. Would you like a white or a brown bun?”

Me: “White, please.”

Employee: “Sorry, we don’t have those anymore. Will brown do?”

Me: “Well, sure, but why give me the choice?”

Employee: “Well, I only realised it just this sec.”

Me: “Ah, well, I guess the weekend is looming on the both of us.”

(I think nothing more of it. However, as I receive my order, I hear the same employee talking to the next customer.)

Employee: “Hi, how may I help you?”

Customer: “One [name] bun please.”

Employee: “Would you like a white or a brown bun?”

Customer: “White, please.”

Employee: “Sorry, we’re out of white buns, will a brown one do?”

(My mom and I are leaving after lunch. There is a hostess holding the door open thanking customers for their business.)

Hostess: *to other customers* “Thanks, have a great day!”

(As we approach the door, the hostess sees my mom who is wearing a purple hat and jacket.)

Hostess: “Thanks, have… oh my God! You are so PURPLE! I LOVE PURPLE!”

Mom: “Umm, thanks!”

Hostess: “I just love it soooo much. Purple!”

Mom: “Yep, purple…”

(As we exit…)

Hostess: *sticks her head out the door* “PURPLE!!!”
