Me: “Hi, what can I get for you?”
[Woman #1 looks to Woman #2. Woman #2 begins whispering in her ear.]
Woman #1: “Just tell him!”
[Woman #2 refuses and keeps whispering.]
Woman #1: “Just tell him. He’s right there!”
[Woman #2 gives up and motions for me to follow her toward the chicken.]
Woman #2: “I want 12 drumsticks, and then…do you have the upper thighs?”
Me: “No, we only have the thighs in packs, and they’re more expensive. We do have the leg quarters here though, which is the drumstick and the thigh together, and I could cut those into two pieces for you.”
Woman #2: “OK, well give me 8 of the leg quarters, and then give me 2 more drumsticks.”
Me: “OK, so I’ll cut up those 8 leg quarters, so you’ll get 8 drumsticks and 8 thighs, plus the 2 extra drumsticks, for a total of 10 drumsticks.”
Woman #2: “No, I want 12 drumsticks.”
Me: “Well, do you want me to cut up 12 leg quarters, so you get 12 drumsticks and 12 thighs?”
Woman #2: “Plus the 10 drumsticks.”
Me: “Wait, you want 12 drumsticks total, right?”
Woman #2: “Yes.”
Me: “So I’ll cut up 12 leg quarters, and you’ll get 12 drumsticks and 12 thighs, OK?”
Woman #2: “So that would be 24 pieces total?”
Me: “Yep.”
Woman #2: “OK.”
