Can I say this vague comment when the next situation shows up?
In the restaurant I work at, a customer ask for a plate to which i reply saying: we don't have plates for the moment. Suddenly a coworker shows up then say what do you need? To which I answer: plates; he then go back to the kitchen to wash the plates, then I (almost unconsciouslly, without thinking on my words nor even trying to communicate what I'm saying but saying to myself) make this comment: it was needed to wash them.
Does that comment fit I mean is it well said?
