More Things I Just Don't Get
While out running errands today, my wife suggested stopping at the mall food court for a Gyro. Sounded good to me, so we entered the madness.
Once we had battled the masses and made our way to the chain gyro provider, my wife orders. The convo goes like this:
"I'd like a classic Gyro and a medium Coke."
"Would you like to combo?"
"No, thank you. Just a Gyro and a Coke."
He looks at me and asks for my order.
"I'll have the same thing, please."
"No, just the same thing."
"Yes, the same thing."
I really thought I had made things simple. I requested the same thing she ordered. I guess I overloaded his conceptual abilities?
