Thought of the day… One who may speak “some” English, …may not actually understand “Ingles”?
Was planning to break my Fast tonight at Dinner with the Top Sirloin I dropped in the Sous Vide last night, but I actually wanted an Iced Tea after a long morning with mostly meetings. So I picked up a couple burgers and those McChickens things while I was there. …Shouldn’t take long, so I thought.
So I told the lady, two McDoubles or whatever their called now, no ketchup, no bun. (She said huh? ) I said sin pan, sin salsa de tomate? (She said ‘ah si, no problema’) … Then asked for 2 McChickens, no bread. … (She said, again, huh?) I was like “Really?”… sin pan? (Ah si, giggles…) Then I said you can put them all in “ONE” platter… She said sure, no problema. And I also want a large ‘un-sweetened’ Ice Tea. - Well, some minutes later I get a freakin’ huge shopping bag, which I already know why. Shaking my head, I just took the bag and left. …After l left the parking lot, had to turn around since I never got the TEA! - So I go back in and let her know I never got my Tea, with the huge shopping bag. She says ‘Large Un-sweetened Tea, Si?’ I said Yes Ma’am. Started back down the road, and at the light, yep, took a sip… Of course it was Extra Sweetened Tea.
So of course I had to go back once again, and finally got what I ordered on the third attempt. Of course, what should have taken maybe 5 minutes?, took nearly 25! But hey, I did get a free four piece matching designer dinette set, that was hardly used as the image shows. Next time I’ll wait…
PS - And I really love the cup that advertises, ‘We’re Hiring’… Yeah, you !&#@%*# need to!
