"How much botato?"
Met friends over for lunch last thursday at sahara centre, sharjah. Love that place. Already had had lunch at home tho. So i settled for NYfries. While placing my order this arab dude, prolly mid-30's, plump, full arab gear on comes over, and starts staring at the menu displayed. Then asks the salesman, "How much botato?" No issues there. He can call those friends whatever he wants. :P The pilipino over the counter shows him the various sizes, with or without sauce options, and the various toppings and prices. Arab dude (animating the chopping process with his hands), "Oh you cut and fry? No no, no want" LOL! NYF displays its POTATOES in a nice little basket kept at the counter. The crazy man wanted to buy POTATOES, assuming that since they are being sold in a dedicated shop, they must be something unique! I saw him lined up at McDonalds later on. And a while later with his family dining in the food court. :) Why is MickeyD always so jam packed? Then again, since i don't eat from there, i really dont care :P
