(I bring a couple and their child place settings and a colouring mat for the 6 year old.)
Me: “Hi, can I get you guys started with something to drink?”
Father: “Sure, I’ll have a Pepsi, and bring me another one of those place mats. I like to colour while I wait.”
Me: *laughs* “You and the boy are going to have a bit of a contest, eh?
(I obviously thought he was making a joke.)
Father: *agitated* “Yeah, is that a problem?”
Me: “Uh, not at all sir…would you like Barney the dinosaur or Spongebob?”
