Employee: Welcome to Grubway. What can I get for you?
Jared: I’m still deciding. I’m trying to lose weight and I hear that eating a sandwich for lunch every day will help me do that. Do you guys have a BLT or a club?
Employee: We don’t have a BLT, but we do have a ham or turkey club.
Jared: Okay, I’ll take the club.
Employee: Ham or turkey?
Jared: Can I get half and half, or better yet, can I get double ham and double turkey?
Employee: Sure, no problem.
Jared: I’d like cheese on that, too.
Employee: Would you like your bread toasted and the cheese melted?
Jared: Uh, sure.
Employee: What else would you like on your sandwich, the works?
Jared: What comes with the works?
Employee: It includes lettuce, tomatoes, onions, bell peppers, olives, and pickles, and any spreads, condiments, or seasonings you’d like.
Jared: Oh, okay. I’ll have the works, but hold the pickles and olives. I’d like mayonnaise on the side, too, please. You know what? I’d like to add some chicken to that.
Employee: That’ll be $1.20 additional.
Jared: That’s fine. I’d also like extra cheese, and why don’t you add some roast beef, too?
Employee: Okay, I can do that. Will that be all?
Jared: Yeah, but while you’re at it, throw in two bags of chips and a couple of cookies.
Employee: Okay, I can ring you up down here.
Jared: Hey, tell me, how long before I start losing weight?
Employee: Well, that’s hard to say. You may want to look at the nutritional information chart to determine that.
Jared: Nah, I can already feel the pounds coming off!
