OK, I'm a bit deaf. Especially when there's a lot of background noise.
Me: Filet of fish and a milk, please.
Me: Yes, I said milk.
Me: I said MILK.
Server: Like this? [Gets kids' bottle of milk out of fridge.]
Me: Yes, fine.
Server: SOS? KETCHUP?
Me: Oh, no thanks.
[She hands over the food.]
Me: You've given me fries - I didn't ask for fries.
Server: You said "IN A MIL".
[Removes fries, fiddles with till, calls over supervisor, explains problem. After about 5 minutes I'm refunded £1.01.]
So "In a meal?" means "Do you want fries with that?"
