Back in the good old days when you was allowed to shove small boys up chimneys ordering fish and chips was easy. "Fish and chips please love." the only response you got was "Salt and vinegar darling?" sadly today is very different. Ask for fish and chips now and you'll get a whole barrage of "Is that a special?"
Armed with this we went to the chip shop last night fully prepared for their annoying options.
Me: [Full of smugness] "Can I have sausage and chips special please."
Assistant: "Is that the £1.50 or £2.50 special?"
Aaaarrrgghh WTF! Ok ok lets move on.
Me: [Full of trepidation] "Can I have kebab meat and chips please, OH WAIT! you only do small or large don't you?"
Assistant: "No we do a breakfast special, a daily special, a mini special, small, medium or large."
Can I not just go in, order something, get served and leave? :'(
