One could also ask why deli staff insist on referring to margarine or vegetable spread as butter - I never ask for the stuff for that reason.

Why do deli staff have no comprehension of the phrase 'a tiny bit of butter'?
I don't ask for any anymore.

its not that they dont understand its just that they couldnt give a shit. i find that auld wans tend to be a bit more generous than the young wans in filling up the sandwich/roll. I always try and order from the mature deli lady in the spar across the road but shes always chattering to people so i end up getting a miserly roll from the young lassie.

The same goes for mayonnaise and coleslaw. I really believe there must be a 90s style EU coleslaw mountain and all delis are instructed to shovel buckets of it onto your sandwich.

werent we just talking about this the other day?

mayonnaise = muck
coleslaw = muck

and do you know what else i really hate? when you order food in some place and it says that it is served with salad but the "salad" turns out to be a handful of coleslaw flung miserably on the plate.

Theres a bit of a knack to it, they say "butter?" you say "yes please just a small bit" an then pretty much as soon as the knife touches the spread you shout politely "thats loads!" an they figure the rest out themselves. sorted.:D

The aul ones I worked with always put on loads of butter.

"Why do you put so much butter on people's roll's" I asked once
"Ah luv, they like a big roll"
"Yeah, they want a big roll that tastes nice"
"Well, I like making a big roll!"

I used to put on a lot of butter, until I actually put some thought into what I was doing. Then eventually, I stopped giving a shit, it wasn't a great job like, and from then on people took whatever I gave them, pricks. Then I left.


Oh, and I know it's not butter, and it annoy's me that people call it butter, but they do. I suppose it's easier to say than "hydrogenated vegetable spread"....
