Artisan by Dan Joyce


Post 47

Cook’s Combo?


“Can I help you?”

“I’d like a chicken artichoke sandwich. The one for $5.99”

“We don’t have the grilled chicken. We only have a chicken tender slice.”

“Can you serve that with the artichoke?”

“Yes, but only with the chicken tender.”

“Is it the same price?”

“Yes, but it’s not the grilled chicken on the menu.”

“Ok, I got that! I’ll have that.”

“Would you like that on a French roll?”

“Is that what it ordinarily comes with?”


“Do you have onion bread?”

“No, all we have is a French roll.”

“Then, I guess I’ll have to have a French roll.”

“Would you like anything else?”

“Yes, chips and I filled my cup with coke. Just charge me whatever price!”

“Would you like to make that a combo?”

“Sure, I got chips and a coke so I guess that’s a combo.”

“You have to buy the drink here!”

“I am! I filled my own cup with coke, so just charge me whatever. Combo, I guess.”

“It has to be a small coke!”

“What the fuck?”

“I’m sorry?”

“I’ll tell you why you are sorry. No, I’m sorry! I’m sorry that I have three college degrees and I have to pay for this with food stamps, yet you are gainfully employed. And when I request a chicken sandwich on your menu, you not only don’t know how to make it, but when I purchase a sandwich, chips and a coke, you can’t even figure out what a combo is! As an economic liberal, I hate to say this, but you are a terrific argument against unions and raising the minimum wage!”

“Do you have a Von’s card?”
