(I’m the embarrassed employee in this incident. I am taking orders on the counter and feeling kind of tired when a good looking guy comes up to order.)

(We call the place up.)

Me: “Are there nuts in the curry?”

Worker: “Yes.”

Me: “Oh. On the website it said there wasn’t.”

Worker: “Um. Well, there are.”

We checked back later and realised that the menu had just said everything with the word “nut” in had nuts in. Coconut – nut allergy. Almonds – no nut allergy.)

Worker: “Sorry, we only have light lemonade.”

Me: “That would be diet…”
