RB worked in a deli for many years. We love freshly sliced deli products, especially American cheese. Everyone in our house loves it and we go through a pound or two per week. So, it’s a sure bet that when I go to BJ’s you’ll find me on the deli line getting cheese. The man that took my order yesterday is someone that I’ve only had take my order once or twice before. I can’t drive while I’m recovering from surgery so yesterday my order was a little larger than usual. As we got to the end of my order I told him I only needed two more items, at which point I asked for 1 pound of Swiss cheese and 3 pounds of American cheese. At that point he said “you said you only needed two more items. I said “that’s right, American cheese and Swiss cheese”. He said “you’re asking for 4 pounds so that’s more than two”. I let it go, got my cheese and went on my way. As I finished shopping I got to wondering how other people think about quantity at the deli counter. Is the number of pounds you’re ordering the number of items you need, or is the number of items you’re ordering the number of items you need? What do you think? Feel free to weigh in with your thoughts. (Pun intended.) If you answer on your blog, please leave the link in a comment here.

I love rock music, tech, travel and food. And cheesecake. I HATE the misuse of the word retarded. I take it personally and find it very offensive. Did I mention that I love cheesecake?
