I waited on a mom and her adult daughters last night. They were fun, having a girls' night out, and it was nice to see some smiling people for once. They had drinks and salads, and when their meals went out I skipped over to see if they needed anything else.
"Well," the mom said, "I didn't get hardly any potatoes! Is this a diet plate or something?" She sounded utterly disgusted.
I just started giggling, I couldn't help it. "Um, yes, actually. It's one of our Low Calorie items."
She blinked at me.
"'Is this a diet plate or something?'" one of her daughters mocked, and we all busted up laughing -- including the mom.
Oh, thank god for people who don't suck.
