Order

October 28, 2007

I overheard a great order from a customer yesterday – I really wish I could audio it so you’d get the full benefit of how bizarre it sounded.  He came up to the counter, and confidently made the first order.  Then a little more hesitantly, still sounding like he was ordering for himself, he placed the second –

“I’ll have a medium dark coffee, and … uh … A medium dark coffee!”

He sounded SO proud of himself for deciding on the other half of his order that the entire sequence immediately caught my attention.  Replayed, it seemed funnier, and then funnier a third time.  The pause, the confidence with which he ordered the first coffee made it cound like he was deciding on something to eat, alongside, or maybe a fancier drink for later.  Instead, he ordered the exact same thing, again.

“I’ll have a medium dark coffee, and … uh … A medium dark coffee!”

Turns out he was ordering for his friend, but out of that context, it was one of my favourite odd orders I’ve gotten in a while.
