We went for breakfast at a restaurant where the 'seniors' special' was two eggs, bacon, hash browns and toast for £2.99.
'Sounds good,' Mrs F said. 'But I don't want the eggs.'
'Then, I'll have to charge you three pounds and forty-nine pence because you're ordering a la carte,' the waitress warned her.
'You mean I'd have to pay for not taking the eggs?' Mrs F asked incredulously.
'YES!!' stated the waitress.
'I'll take the special then,' says she
'How do you want your eggs?' the waitress asked.
'Raw and in the shell please' says Mrs F.
She took the two eggs home and baked a cake.
DON'T MESS WITH SENIORS!!!
WE'VE been around the block more than once!
"Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways - Chardonnay in one hand - chocolate in the other - body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming, "WOO HOO, what a ride!"
