AAAARGGGGHHHH!!! vent Vent VENT!!!

I deal with this on occasion. Normally it doesn't bother me. It drives
me nuts however, when people have to push it in my face and honestly
don't get it.

I just called dominos for dinner. Okay, Wendy's I've gotten used to. I
ordered a small pizza.

"We only have medium"

I thought, 'Did you people run out of all other crust sizes?' "You only
have medium"

"That's our smallest size"

*sigh*

"How many sizes do you have?"

"3, medium, large, and extra large"

*audible sigh*

"I'll have the smallest pizza you have."

"You want a medium."

I think to myself, "NO, YOUR ROARING IDIOT. IF I WANTED MEDIUM WHICH BY
DEFINITION MEANS MIDDLE, I'D HAVE F&#&ING ORDERED MEDIUM." "Yeah,
sure."

This country will be destroyed by the revolution of us destroying those
in marketing.

Side note: This is a test of me posting with the new PGP email function.

But the volume knob on my Amp goes to 11.

"And in other news, a local computer programmer was arrested today and taken for psychiatric evaluation. He was taken from a local Domino's pizza restaurant screaming about roaring idiots and killing all those in marketing. He is obviously considered HIGHLY DANGEROUS, and has been sedated for his own safety and that of the doctors caring for him. The Marketing Association of America has been called in to advise the hospital on this poor soul's treatment. They hope to release him in a few days a productive member of society. This segment has been brought to you by Marketing for a Better Tomorrow and the Sex, Lies, and Videotape advertising agency."

The redefinition of basic terms like "medium" has led me to order things like "20-ounce drink", "pint of cole slaw", etc. Sadly, the usual response to this is "huh?" -- most of the people behind the counter don't actually know what a pint is, for example.

Places like Starbucks and Subway just don't work here. British people get upset at having to specify beyond 'a sandwich, please' or 'a coffee'. Sometimes if we're fussy we insist on a 'black coffee', but only if we're feeling up to a few glares.

I'm pretty sure McDonald's french fries also come in medium, large, and x-tra large.
