I picked up a few items for lunch at the cafeteria and there was this cashier woman who took my payment. The cutlery box is usually just beside the till, which I found only had forks and knives. I immediately had an ear-to-ear smile, and told her with gleeful eyes: "There is no spoon" (I did my best with the voice).

The lady said "I'm sorry, I'm sorry", started backing away and went straight into the kitchen and shrieked "somebody bring the spoons from the dishwasher, please". She must have taken me either for some kind of a psycho creep, or a en entitled prick.

I giggled at the dude behind me in line, and said "I can't believe there was a real-life scenario that let me tell someone 'there is no spoon', but I think she unfortunately didn't get it".

This dude's face turned almost pale, and he responded confusingly: "Sorry mate, the cutlery comes from the dishwasher and the staff could sometimes be behind in replenishing it at the front. You could drop in a complaints/compliments form on the box as you go out". D'Oh! | :doh:
