This evening I went to pick up dinner at our local restaurant- the same restaurant that I accidentally called a month prior…but went to the sister restaurant 25 minutes away. Anyhow, when I got there, this is what happened…
Me: Hi, I am here for Richy.
Lady: (Looking) Hmm… what’s the name?
Lady: (Looking again) What’s the name?
Lady: I’m sorry there’s no order for anyone with that name.
Me: (Now I knew I called the right place) Can you look it up by the phone number?
Lady: No, there’s no way to do that.
Me: Can I tell you what we ordered then and you look??
Lady: Yeah, go ahead.
Me: Two baguettes….
Lady: (Reads the name) Oh, here it is, it’s under Richard.
Me: AND YOU COULDN’T MAKE THAT LEAP?
Me: Richy is short for Richard!!
Lady: Well I didn’t know they were the same name!
…You would all be very glad to know that I didn’t spaz out and call her a nickname.
