View Full Version : Amusing things Customers say.

Customers are constantly mis-pronouncing the food that we have. Some of them are quite amusing :lol:

1)B.L.T. Pasta. Like the B.L.T. sandwich, but pasta. I've had customers ask for the Bolt pasta, or the "Blllt" pasta. They actually try to make BLT an actual word and say it

2) Krakuas ham. It's a polish ham that we have. I had a man come up to me a week or so ago, and ask if he could have a pound of "Crack house" ham.

3)Honey ham. I don't know what was on this elderly woman's mind, and I don't want to know. But I got asked for a half pound of Horny ham.

There's a few more, but they're no where near as amusing. How about you guys?

A friend of my dad's once ordered the delicious avocado dip by asking for some of that there "gook-a-mole".

One of my favorite obscure 80s movie quotes involved someone referencing finger foods at a garden party and calling them "horse-doovers". (from "Roller Boogie")
