The poem” Counterman” by Paul Violi was very funny, in my opinion. I liked it when the whole class had to read each line because it made the poem stand out more. The poem reminded of when I use to order a veggie bacon, lettuce, and cheese sandwich (VBLC). The deli owner knew I was a vegetarian, so he always made sure to order veggie bacon personally for me.
As a sandwich maker, it is important to please and satisfy each customer, even if that means speaking the lingo of a religious customer. The first customer relates more to me, which is straight to the point. The second customer used words that most students in my class, including me, couldn’t pronounce. This sandwich maker definitely has experience with understanding what a customer has.
