Can you tell “it” I’ll have another cup of coffee?
“Hey You!” would seem to be ok, too.
Interesting cafe name:
“Powderhorn” —> rugged pioneers eking out a living on the cold, lonesome prairie fighting off bloodthirsty savages.
“May Day” —> Communist collective singing The Internationale with raised fists.
Which is it?
“he”, “she” or “it” ... my call to make.
Exactly. “It” if they don’t want to be he or she. “Hey you”, “Thing” works fine for me too.
Or maybe I’ll go in and ask what the f*ck is a gender-neutral pronoun? (flips around in grammar book. Oh, then I have to use IT or THING.)
Hey, thing! would you bring some more coffee! Oh, and please tell it over there that I would like some dessert.
Also, tell the cook that it did a good job cooking the capon. I’ll just call you “gelding.”
“Can you tell it Ill have another cup of coffee?”
In college my then girlfriend, who was working the concession stand at a basketball game, was approached by a black man who said: “Yo, gi me a hot dog bitts!” She proceeded to let him know she was not his bitts! Loved that girl!
So, I would just say: “Gi me another cup o coffee bitts!”
