And it’s neat how they work, or fail to, isn’t it? We sell this really yummy coffee at my little brewpub, and because we’re all hippified and pretentious we have it in the computer as “French Roast” rather than just plain old “Coffee.” Lately we’ve started doing breakfasts one day a week, and I’ve started seeing people complain that their check isn’t right. They see “Brunch_FrenchRoast” and think I’ve charged them for french *toast.* No one makes that mistake at dinner, of course- who’s thinking about french toast then?
Of course, more interesting to me is the fact that not one of these people, all of whom have obviously gone over their check quite thoroughly, notices that this french toast I’ve charged them for is only two buck a pop. Nor do they mention I neglected to charge them for their coffee. :-}
