    (My table has just ordered our unlimited soup and salad.)

    Me: “Ok, I’ll go ahead a put this in for you and be right back with your salad and bread.”

    Customer: “So where is y’alls salad bar?”

    Me: “Pardon me?”

    Customer: *speaking slowly* “The sal-ad ba-ar. Where is it?”

    Me: “Um, we don’t have a salad bar sir, I bring it to your table.”

    Customer: “You bring the salad bar to the table?.”

    Me: “No sir, I bring out a bowl of salad for everyone at the table to share.”

    Customer: “So, it’s not endless?”

    Me: “Yes, it still is endless, I bring out as much salad as you want.”

    Customer: “How you gonna know how much I want?”

    Me: “I bring out as many bowls as you tell be to bring.”

    Customer: “Well how am I supposed to know how many to tell you when I don’t even know how much is in one?”

    Me: “After I bring out the first bowl, you can tell me if you’d like some more.”

    Customer: “But I want all my salad now!”

    Me: “We don’t bring out all the salad at once so you get the freshest product possible.”

    Customer: “But I want it now.”

    Me: “Well as soon as I go back to the kitchen, I can bring it out for you.”

    Customer: “But I want it now!”

    Me: “So I’ll go and get it for you.”

    (As I finally walk away, I hear him say to this to his wife, “So, where’s my salad?”)
