Maybe its just a Harris Teeter thing, but, whenever I get lunch meat at HT Deli they always ask "how would you like that sliced"

What is the proper way to respond? Do you say thin, medium, thick, or do you give a specific size like 1/16th of an inch?

I never know what to say

There definitely is a difference between thin, medium and thick slices. Ususally you can ask them to slice one and see if it looks OK. I think it makes a difference in flavor because depending on the size of the slice you are getting more or less meat on the sandwich.

They don't know how to do chip chopped ham around here though.

I usually get everything 'thin', except honey ham which for some reason I like 'shaved'.

Thin, medium or thick would be acceptable responses. I usually say "not too thin" or "just thick enough so it doesn't fall apart when you separate the slices" ...my pet peeve is when the cheese sticks together :-)

I am very particular about how my meat is cut. I like most of it shaved or really thin. Same for cheese - I don't like it too thick.

Me too, but everytime I say "thin" it's still too thick for me. I have to emphasize VERY thin.

Here's another one: do you want your cheese stacked or shingled? I think the shingled method is better for the cheese not to stick together..

Sometimes they have a chart from 1-10 showing the thickness. Roast beef is better as thin as you can get it. You get the most taste out of the meat that way IMO.
