I had my first experience the other night ordering pizza for my friends (who were all afraid of ordering over the phone. Since they knew I was studying Korean, they basically gave the phone to me faster than you can say "jackknife").
Anyway to make a long story short it was actually a success "yay" and I was pretty proud of myself. It was a little difficult, and during the end I said a few times "이해가 안가요" (I don't understand). The part I did not seem to understand at the end was he was asking for my address (which he said in English). For the entire phone conversation though I did not break out of my Korean (or caveman Korean rather) the entire time, and I will let you people know that, at least for me, it was quite a prideful moment .
So, this is what I said in Korean. (Entire Korean transcript is me speaking)
-피자 한게 주세요
(Friend shouting out: Order two pies!)
-피자 두게 주세요
(Another friend shouts out: We want hawaiian and pepperoni)
(Me to myself: We probably should have decided this before doing this whole phone thing)
-미안해요. 페퍼 로니 피자 한개이랑 하와이피자 한개 주세요.
(Man on the phone asks for something. I guessed it was my address)
(Man on the phone seems confused. He talks a little bit more.)
-미안해요. 이해가 안가요.
(Man asks in English if I want Cola)
-예. 콜라 한병 주세요.
(Man says something again. I repeat my survival "sorry, dont understand" phrase)
(Man then asks for my address again in English)
-예. 사백오십일 blah blah로 blah blah blah 방 삼백이십이.
(Man says thank you)
Next thing we know our pizza successful arrives.
NOW is there anything that I can learn that can make this conversation go more smoothly? Because I am sure there is some sort of ritual that all Koreans go through when ordering any type of food over the phone like they do in English.
In case your friends are as picky as mine can be, you might want to use the following phrase: _____ 뺄 주세요 (Hold the ____, please)
I also like to ask how long the delivery will take because sometimes they come in a flash and other places take what feels like eons. You can say 얼마 결려요? (I think we say this mainly in Gyeongsang province so I'm not sure if people in other places will understand it...but it's worth a try!)
