    Putting The Pest Into Pesto

    , | ME, USA | Children, Parents & Guardians, Sons & Daughters

    (A large family comes in to the fast food place. I’m working on putting the veggies on the sandwich of the youngest son who’s about 8 or 9.)

    Kid: “Lettuce, tomato, olives…” *mumbles* “…uhm, mustard.”

    Me: “Sorry, was that honey mustard?”

    Kid: *shouts* “MUSTARD!”

    Me: “Regular mustard then?”


    Me: “Anything else?”

    Kid: “Olive!”

    Me: “I already have the olives on here.”

    Kid: “OLIVE!”

    Me: *looks at the dad* “I already have his olives in here.”

    Kid: *starts stomping his feet and whining* “OLIVE!”

    Dad: “She has the olives on there what more do you want!”


    Dad: “Apparently he didn’t want olive or something.” *turns to kid* “You’re being naughty, cut it out!”

    Kid: *screams* “Noooo!”

    (I start taking the olives off, and finally the mom comes over.)

    Mom: “What is going on!?”

    Dad: “He didn’t want olives, but he kept saying olive.”

    Kid: “No! I want olive! Olive oil!”

    Mom: *points to dad* “You! You’re not allowed to do this anymore next time I do this. He wanted olives and olive oil.”

    Me: “…so, he wants olives and olive oil?”

    Dad: *sheepishly* “Yes.”

    Kid: “FINALLY!”
