When I was in Arizona back in 2009, I went to one of the Subway restaurants to get a footlong tuna sandwich during my lunch break. At that time, I had been in the US for a few months and had not had the chance to practice my English a lot, but after a lot of hesitation, I decided to go in and order a whole wheat bread with tuna and some vegetables. I was thrilled that I did not struggle to communicate with the subway staff, but at the end, the employee said one word that I could not understand, so I asked her to repeat what she said, and she did loudly, and that did not help either. It was an awkward situation because I did not get the word she was telling, and the customer next to me seemed to be in a hurry. Finally, that customer told the employee, “yes, please.” The employee wrapped my sandwich with paper and handed it to me with a smile. I paid for my order and took my order with reservations.
