Yes, honey (or the beauty of double meaning)

A sunny morning in a small coffee shop.

"Hi!"
"Hi!"
"I'd like one chai latte, please".
"OK."

The girl went on to prepare the order. After a while,

"Do you want honey or sugar?"
"Yes."
"Yes what?"
"Yes, honey."

One second passed. Then we shared a laugh.

(Just like in a [HB]ollywood movie)

It must have been a hollywood movie, unless there was singing and dancing in the background afterwards :)

Had a similar experience once.

I was ordering a "Wiener-Schnitzel".
You can choose either pork or turkey hen.
So I said "a Wiener-Schnitzel, meat, please"

She glared at me confused.
So I repeated "meat, please" just realising seconds after what rubbish I was saying. Well it was a good laugh though.
