Do you want fries with that?

I went to Burger King today before I came to work (I spent the morning working -or trying to- from home). I had a coupon for a free burger, so I proceeded to order: "One whopper, plain, with cheese, with a diet coke -no ice-. And here's a coupon for a second whopper, also plain and with cheese".

That was enough to cause the brain of the lady there to suffer a short circuit. I saw her struggle with my order, try to charge me $4.23, then $6.79, and then $4.23 again. Then I got two tickets, one for each value, but I was supposed to sign the $4.23 one only. I looked at the receipt and it said:
  • Whopper
  • + plain
  • Whopper
  • + plain
  • + cheese (4 times)
  • Diet Coke
  • + no ice
A few minutes later, I got my two burgers and mi diet coke. I opened my first burger... no cheese. Ate it anyway, I was hungry. Opened the second one... yes, you're right, four slices of cheese...

Diet coke was OK, though.

Hoy fui a Burger King camino al trabajo (estuve toda la mañana trabajando -o tratando de- en casa). Tenía un cupón para una hamburguesa gratis, así que pedí: "Un whopper, plain, con queso, con una diet coke -sin hielo-. Y aquí tengo un cupón para otro whopper, también plain y con queso".

Eso fue suficiente para causarle un cortocircuito en la cabeza a la pobre señora. La ví luchar con mi orden, tratar de cobrarme $4.23, después $6.79, y finalmente $4.23 de nuevo. Me dió dos tickets, uno por cada valor, pero yo debía firmar sólo el de $4.23. Miré el recibo y decía lo siguiente:
  • Whopper
  • + plain
  • Whopper
  • + plain
  • + cheese (4 veces)
  • Diet Coke
  • + no ice

Unos minutos despues, me dieron mis dos hamburguesas y mi diet coke. Abrí la primera hamburguesa... no tenía queso. Igual la comí, porque tenía hambre. Abrí la segunda... si, por supuesto, tenía cuatro rodajas de queso...

La diet coke estaba bien, sin embargo.
