A Sweet and Very Quick Affair

Server StoriesAn elderly British couple walked into the diner, in search of a cup of tea and a slice of pie. Upon delivery of the very proper lady’s black tea, she requested skim milk. I replied, we have only whole milk.

Fact: when I tell someone, “we only have whole milk,” I’m not making it up.

Naturally, the lady asked for 2%.

Fact: I contemplated giving her whole milk with water added.

I kindly responded, “I’m sorry, we don’t have 2% either.”

Imagine hearing a very strong British accent ask, “Well, how low do you go?”

At this point her husband strongly interjected, “Ella! What a horrible thing to ask a lady!”
