Things people said in restaurants.

I had a craving for french fries one day, so I pulled up to the drive-thru of McDonald's.

* Me: "I'd like a large french fries please."
* Clerk: "Would you like fries with that?"

I got sort of confused at this one and told him no. He told me to pull ahead, so I did, and then he asked me why I was sitting there.

* Clerk: "I thought you didn't want fries."
* Me: "No, I ordered a large french fries."
* Clerk: "Ok. Do you want fries with that?"

Since saying no the last time had gotten me nothing, I figured I'd better say yes this time.

He gave me two large fries.

Things People Said in Restaurants has a large and entertaining collection of anecdotes like this one, as well as ambiguously worded menus and signs that don’t quite make sense. Link -via Cynical-C

haha that reminds me of the time I was behind this lady at a sandwich shop and she said "I want a cheesy chicken sandwich, but without cheese." Even though the normal chicken sandwich was listed on the menu right above it.

I've confused several people by handing over loose change (I always find it after I hand over a $20) and asking them to take the change they'll give me and my coins in exchange for $5.

Best example of staff not knowing what they were talking about (not restaurant related, unfortunately) was the guy who told me to download my modem drivers off the internet.
