A Dangerous Mis-Steak

| Working | July 22, 2014

(My family and I are ordering at a steakhouse. I have a potato allergy and I was inquiring about non-potato sides.)

Me: “What sides do you offer that are not potatoes? I don’t see them listed on the menu.”

Server: “Well we have steamed veggies, applesauce, steak fries, cheese sticks—”

Me: “Steak fries are potatoes.”

Server: “Um, no they are not. I work here. I know.”

Me: “Uh huh… What are regular fries made of?”

Server: “Potatoes.”

Me: “And curly?”

Server: “Potatoes.”

Me: “And steak fries are not?”

Server: *there is a long pause as you can hear the gears turning in her head* “No.”

Me: “Okay. Well, I will have the applesauce.”

(She left and we all cracked up. When she came back out she apologized and said she asked the cook. She had assumed they were strips of steak.)
