"I'll have a swiss and chicken, regular."
"That one?" *pointing to the exact opposite side of the list from Swiss and Chicken*
"No, that one. Number 2."

"Oh, okay. What size?"
"Small?" (note: the only two sizes they offer are 16oz and 20oz)

Admittedly this is still better than the clerk at Safeway who managed to get distracted and forget what she was doing no less than twice in the middle of checking me out (note: I was only buying two items), and then proceeded to drop my money on the conveyor belt on accident.

I'm starting to think she's right.
