    Question Can't hear a phrase(Online Gamer: Help Needed)

    Hey there!
    I'm having a hard time getting a couple of phrases from this video.



    At 1:45 the customers are speaking about something. I just can't get it.
    Man: ???.
    Woman: I didn't know that's what we were waiting for. Cause I'm ??? right now.
    Man: I know, right. I'm kidding.

    Hope you can help me out. Thanks!

    I don't think you are meant to hear what the man says at 1:45. He is mumbling on purpose. I think the lady says "I didn't know that's what we were waiting for, cos then we could/can eat right now".

    The word you were looking for in your first sentence is "customers" (not "costumers") - it's a very common spelling error but the two words have very different meanings.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.

    He is mumbling on purpose.
    I thought that too, but the girls line is rather understandable.
    "customers" (not "costumers")
    Right. Just fast typing. My bad. Thanks.
