You ordered a latte at a coffee shop but asked for no foam on it. The barista gave you a latte with foam. You're annoyed, so you're complaining to your friend.
What part of "no foam" do they not understand?
Use this phrase when:
- you tell a person to do something
- they don't do it
- you're annoyed with them
Here's another example:
A: Can I borrow your car?
A: Aw, come on! Please?
B: What part of "no" do you not understand?
"Foam" means a lot of little bubbles that stick together. You might see foam in places like:
- in a bubble bath
- in the ocean
- at the top of a glass of beer
Some coffee drinks have foam in them. If you don't want that, you can say "no foam":
Can I get a small latte, no foam?
