The cook said "We don't have warm water."
I asked: "Do you have hot water?", answer: "yes",
"Do you have cold water?" "Yes",
"What happens when you mix them?". They both suddenly had stunned looks on their faces.

FWIW, I don't normally like to drink cold water. Cold beer or pop is OK, but not water.

Yeh Katy, I had a similar experience at a convention in mid winter. Morning tea was tea, coffee and ice water (literally with ice). I asked for water without ice and the bloke looked at me as if I had two heads. He will always be a waiter and not a good one either.
In Wee Waa I went to the bowling club for supper. I was the only patron and there must have been seating for 100. The waitress insisted I tell her where I would be seated. Bet she is now working for the government.
I know many things,
But I don't know everything,
Sometimes I forget things.

And there are times when I have a long memory. is offline   Reply With Quote
