As I drove home yesterday from Kentucky, I stopped at one of my usual places. It has a full grocery, gas pumps, clean restrooms and a sandwich place. I usually don’t go to the sandwich place, but my stomach indicated it would not wait much longer.
A couple ordered ahead of me and walked away to wait on their sandwiches. When I stepped up to the cashier, another worker walked up to the counter. The cashier told the other worker that the previous guests were “two traditional”.
I said, “They are too traditional? How could you tell with that limited exposure?…Oh…you meant two traditional, T-W-O, not too traditional, T-O-O.” This was met with a blank stare.
“Alrighty then,” I said in my head. I then placed my order as serious as I could. Some people do not have a sense of humor. It is so hard to tell prior to a testing a joke.
