An 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!”
