Scene from a Cafe

I went to nab a Nutella crepe at Rendez-Vous yesterday (because yesterday was that kind of day, and I'd failed to take my lunch properly, and, and, and).

I sat reading Austenland by Shannon Hale (which I love) and tried not to listen to the chatter around me.

Except there was one young couple I couldn't ignore.

Dude: *takes a bite of banana*
Girl: "That's MY banana!"
Dude: "I gave you a sip of MY coffee."
Girl: "Not at all the same. You have a lot more coffee than I have banana. My sip was small, your bite was big."
Dude: "But... quid pro quo."
Girl: "It's not quid pro quo!"
Dude: "Sure it is. Banana. Coffee. Quid pro quo."
Girl: "Do you even know what that means?"
Dude: "Yeah... It means..." *clearly has a grasp of the concept but can't articulate it* "It means..." *falters* "I want banana."

"I want banana."

I'm pretty sure that's not the literal Latin.

What do they teach in the schools these days?

Just be thankful that there was no mention of an egg, or the unboiling thereof.
