Susan: I'm hungry. I feel like a little mexican. Lemont: Nah, too easy. I'm not sure, that cashier heard me say my name is "Lemont." He might have thought I said something else. When he repeated my name back to me I think he may have said "Lemon." Susan: So? Maybe They'll say "Lemon" When your order's ready. Just listen for "Lemon." Lemont: It's not that simple. He's going to pass that on to the other guy, and that guy might also get it wrong. When they finally call me to pick up my burrito, I might not recognize the name they use. He might forget the cashier said "Lemon," but since lemon will be in the back of his mind, he might think of something related, like a car. When he gives my to the cashier he could say it's for "toyota" or "ford". Susan: You can't go a day without coming up with something to worry about, can you? Lemont: HM? Cashier: Hummer, bean burrito for Hummer.
