We walk in and our chatting it up while waiting in line. Now, the system goes like this:
- You place your order
- Stand aside and wait for your number to be called when your order is done
- Pick up the food at the counter and be on your merry way
Pollo Tropical employee (in a spanish accent): "Number 386. Number 386. [[waits a few moments]] Number 386 [[this last phrase in a "i'm getting frustrated that you can't hear me calling your number voice]]..... HELLLOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, number 386!"
We both bust out laughing because I can't believe this employee just pulled a phrase that a child would have pulled to get some attention. Now, for the person who had #386, clearly they should have stayed by the counter to pick up their food. Maybe they weren't feeling good and had to go poop. Maybe they went to sit down and found a table far away so they didn't come back in time to hear the employee calling their number. OR maybe they were hard of hearing or wanted to cause this woman to repeat it over and over again because it's funny. Whichever reason the person wasn't there was ok because Sis-in-Crime and I had a good laugh over it.
Ha... it still cracks me up!
