The scene: a coffee shop in Visby.

Me: I'll have a slice of that, please.
Server: It's strawberry and rhubarb.
Me: Good, I like strawberry and rhubarb.

The server takes the flan out from the display shelf. She looks as it, then goes through a door to the back of the shop.

She returns holding nothing.

Server: We don't have any.
Me: Er, that's a shame, I was looking forward to it.
Server: We don't have any.
Me: Well I guess I'll have the rice cake, then.

These Swedish shop assistants are capable of some pretty outrageous lying when they have a mind to do so.
