most incompetent sales clerk EVER.

"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."
"Here or to go?"
"To go."
"Anything else?"
"Strawberry Cheesecake smoothie."
"Espresso smoothie?"
"No, Strawberry Cheesecake."
"Number 8?"
"Number 3."
"Oh, okay. What size?"
"Small?" (note: the only two sizes they offer are 16oz and 20oz)
"No, large."

They didn't wrap the sandwich to go, and I had to remind them I was waiting for a smoothie.

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.

To combine with all of this, I'm reading Bellwether by Connie Willis (a fantastic author, you should all read her writing). One of the things it comments on is an apparent rising incompetence fad.

I'm starting to think she's right.
