Saturday morning we head down to the restaurant in our hotel for breakfast. It’s a nice little place with a buffet or an ala-carte menu. We decide to order from the menu. The dishes served on the menu come with a choice of hash browns or homemade grits.
So the waiter comes around to take our order. She orders the eggs benedict. The waited diligently writes down the order and proceeds to ask about the additional items. “Would you wheat or white toast?” Answer: “Wheat toast please.” Okay, that was easy enough. Now for the tough part.
Waiter: “Would you like hash browns or grits?”
Waiter: “Okay, now would you like hash browns or grits?”
Waiter: “Do you want the hash browns or the grits?”
Waiter: “Okay, do you want the hash browns or grits?”
Finally I had to help the waiter out and let him know to “just bring the grits.”
