I was buying food at the Hoboken train station yesterday. I asked for a swiss cheese omelette, which comes with toast and home fries.
The sullen man at the counter said, "We're out of home fries."
"Can I get it with french fries instead?"
A solemn nod was his only reply.
"Well, what if you just serve me the eggs and toast, and take a little off the price?"
Angered by my stupidity, he shouted, "That's what I was going to do even without you asking!"
