Best operator ever.

Girl (Thai Slang): Hello this is Ying Thai2 how can I help you?
Harvard: Hi, I want to order a chicken pad thai.
Girl: What's your name?
Harvard: XXXXXXX.
Girl: Phone number?
Harvard: XX - XXXXXXXX.
Girl: Ok, it'll be ready in fifty minutes.
Harvard: I'm sorry, fifty minutes?
Girl: Yes, fifty.
Harvard: Do you mean fifteen?
Girl: NO, FIFTY!
Harvard: As in FIVE-ZERO?
Girl: NO! IT'S ONE-FIVE!!

I gave up and thanked her. I have another 5 minutes until the one-five minutes are up to collect my pad thai.
