So I roll into Subway today and stumble into this conversation in progress. Keep in mind that I'm not sure how long this has been going on.
Customer: "Can I get a turkey and ham sandwich? But can you make it without the ham?"
Subway: "Um, I don't think so. You have to have a turkey and ham sandwich."
Customer: "Aw, darn, I really just wanted it without the ham. Are you sure?"
Subway: "Just a sec. Hey Joe (advanced sandwich artist), can we make a turkey and ham without ham."
Joe: "Nope, we still have to charge you for the turkey and ham"
Customer: "Ok then."
Subway: "Well, you could just get a Ham sub"
Customer: "But I don't want ham, maybe you didn't understand."
Me: (can't help myself) "Could you make him a turkey and ham and just put the ham on mine?"
Subway: "Do you want a turkey and ham?"
Me: "No, I want the ham sub, but I'll wanted double meat. Can I have his?"
Joe: "I suppose that could work."
Customer: "Sounds like a plan to me, thanks!"
And that, my friends, is why people should pass a test before they reproduce. And this proves my problem-solving skills are not limited to the mortgage game! LOL
