I went to buy fish at the deli yesterday and asked for two nile perch fillets. I could see that there were three in the case.
Deli lady asks if I'm sure I want two because they're quite big. I'm planning to feed myelf, my husband and two young children with the two fillets, but I don't tell her this - I just say, 'Yes, two please.'
So she puts the top one in the bag, and digs the bottom one out and says, 'I'll give you this one, it's a bit smaller.'
So apparently deli lady knew better than I did how much fish I'd be needing for dinner last night.
It wasn't that much smaller, so I didn't bother asking for the bigger fillet, but sheesh!
