. . . on Friday went like this:
Me: Hi, what can we get for you today?
Customer-lady: Um, do you guys make the pumpkin spice latte in a venti?
[I imagine most self-acknowledged readers of this site are at least nominally familiar with Starbucks size-names, but I guess even if you're not, you can understand why I would be puzzled as to someone's asking if we make the drink in a certain size. I would think most drinks could be made in any size you wanted, except for shots of espresso.]
Me: Uh . . . yes.
Customer-lady (pausing): Okay. Can I get a tall pumpkin spice latte?
Me (even more puzzled): Sure . . . but . . . did you want a venti or a tall?
Customer-lady (pausing again): Oh. Yeah, I see what you're saying. (Another pause.) Can I get a tall pumpkin spice latte?
I have no idea what the point of that conversation was. Maybe someone out there can interpret it for me . . .
