favorite customer

That’s me!


I was in Bread Co yesterday evening to meet a client for her print ordering session.  I always make sure I spend some money there when I meet someone at Bread Co.  So I’m at the counter in the middle of placing my order and the cashier interrupts me with:

“You’re my favorite customer.”

Huh, whut?

Of course, I said “what?” and laughed a little and he said, “you said ‘caramel,’ not ‘carmel.’  ‘Carmel’ sounds so… gross.”

Gave me a giggle.  I said, “well, it’s spelled ‘caramel’!”  Any time I order my caramel drinks there or at McDonald’s or wherever, they always repeat it back “carmel”!

This Grammar Nazi dies a little inside each time.  It might be noticeable if it weren’t for people around here saying “warsh” all the time, that has already deadened me.
