Coffee Shop Incident

Filipino Waitress


I was sitting at a Coffee shop in Dubai and asked the Filipino waitress if she had honey to sweeten the cafe latte that I was ordering. She replied, "We have playboy only" I paused, trying to comprehend, "What?", I asked. "We have playboy", she repeated. "Excuse me? What do you mean?", I asked again. "we have playboy, we have caramel, banila, chokooloot playboy". "Ok, thank you, no playboy for me" I answered.

  4. I like my latte without any sweetner in it. But those playboys will do so well with my ice cream!!
    I still remember my difficulties with communicating with Philippinos when I still lived in Kuwait!
