(It’s always been a challenge for me to get eggs the way I like them: fried, with the yolk cooked just enough that it’s starting to firm up, but not completely finished. From references I read online, what I’m asking for really IS an egg over medium: long enough to partly set the yolk but still leave it a little creamy. However every time I order it, what they give me is a textbook over-easy egg, with the whites firm, and the yolk completely runny.)

Me: “I’ll have an extra medium egg please.”

Server #1: “What’s that?”

Me: “A medium egg, but the yolk isn’t as runny.”

Server #1: “That’s a hard fried egg.”

Me: “But I don’t want it completely solid.”

Server #1: “That’s a medium egg.”

Me: “But the yolk will be runny.”

Server #1: “No it wont.”

(I get the egg, and it’s very runny. I’d say it got easier when someone told me the magic words were “Over well, yolk not broken” but even then I’ve gotten…)

Server #2: “An egg that was scrambled before being fried.”

Server #3: “An egg that was scrambled before being fried, but they kept the yolk intact.”

Server #4: “Over-hard eggs with broken yolks.”

(These days, I’ve resorted to asking for scrambled eggs, because I’ve only found about two places where they cook the egg the way I ask. And one of those was because the server had no idea what it was and asked the chef, and he knew exactly what I was asking for.)
