Okay, say “Sprite.”
Now say “Fries.”
Sound different enough, right?
Yah, in drive thru…These are incredibly hard to discern over the headset. I’ve had to ask more then one customer for clarification, and randomly guessed more often then not.
So if we ask which you mean, either be very careful of the pronunciation, or say something like “french fries” or “the soda one.” Something like that. Don’t yell at us for not being able to read your mind.
It just sounds like “Spriestes” to us.
