sure that's what you want


Michael notes that this was spotted at "the famous, customer unfriendly Lorenzo's Pizza on South Street in Philadelphia." I don't know what people really take when they ask for a "cup of ice" but Lorenzo is on to them.

And what, exactly, does pleasele mean? Bottom of photo...

@SpitFire: I think that says "pleaseee," for an extension of "please." Of course, you really shouldn't stretch a silent letter.

WV: poterms -- These are some po' terms indeed.

I absolutely love that place for the signs all over the walls. They go out of their way to let you know that you cannot change anything and that nothing is free. The lack of tolerance is incredibly endearing.

Actually, Lorenzo may be right in that people ASK for a "cup of ice" or a "cup of water" and REALLY take a soda.

I don't think these quotes are unecessary.

People ask for a "cup of ice" (or even better, "water") all the time, and then fill up with whatever they want from the fountain.

Friends and I used to do it all the time at Subway.

He must do his inventory of how many drinks he's sold by counting his cups. That's what they used to do at 7-Eleven, and why you couldn't get take a Big Gulp cup and fill it with ice and tap water.

Either that, or hey, quit using all the ice and not buying anything! I'm kind of with the proprietor on this one.
