Lost in Translation

.........................to the deli guy in Hannaford


Me: Can I have a 1/2 lb of turkey?
Deli guy: How do you want that sliced?
Me: thin?
Deli guy: Is this OK? (holds up razor thin slice of turkey you can actually see through)
Me: Perfect
Deli guy: Anything else?
Me: Yes, could I have a 1/4lb of the Virginia Ham...and can you cut it thicker?
Deli guy: Is this good? (holds up razor thin slice)
Me: A little thicker
Deli guy: How about this? (still razor thin)
Me: How about just a tiny bit thicker
Deli guy: (mumbles something in another language).
Me: I'm sure whatever you cut will be fine.
Deli guy: Weird smile. Hands me deli meat.
Me: (Distracted by a swarm of hungry Canadians that just walked into Hannaford) I say thanks and throw Deli meat in cart.
When I get home this is what I find:
Gross.

I have to say that that is extremely rude of the deli guy, although after a few minutes of ranting, I would probably be laughing hysterically :) why doesnt weird stuff like that ever happen to me?

i guess, i would cube it up and use it for salad :)

It was definitely funny after a while. I'm going to chop it up and use it in omelets. Maybe I’ll bring him one :)
