Customer lady: “If I get 4 chicken leg quarters, and you cut them in half, then how many would I get? 16?”
Me: “If I cut 4 chicken leg quarters in half, you will end up with 8 pieces.”
Customer lady: “OK, well give me 8 leg quarters then. I also want a whole chicken cut up.”
Me: “How many pieces do you me to cut it up into?”
Customer lady: “Cut it like the leg quarters.”
Me: “Uhhhhh…how about I cut it up into 8 pieces?”
Customer lady: “Sure.”
Me: “OK, this chicken here weighs 3.5 pounds, it’s about $7.”
Customer lady: “No, that’s too much. Just give me a chicken breast and split it.”
Me: “Do you want a bone-in chicken breast?”
Customer lady: “Yes.”
[I cut up the leg quarters and breast. She’s all set and walks away, but then returns a minute later.]
Customer lady: “Excuse me, can you take the bone out of this chicken breast? I wanted boneless.”
Me: “I asked you if you wanted a bone-in chicken breast and you said yes, so that’s what I cut up for you.”
Customer lady: “I know, but I wanted boneless. Can you take this back and give me a boneless chicken breast?”
