Can’t Have Your Warm Cake And Eat It

| Working | February 20, 2015

(A friend and I have gone out to get dessert after work.)

Me: “May I have the chocolate cake, please, and could you warm it up, please?”

Waitress: “But there is ice cream on it.”

Me: “I know but could you just warm the cake in a microwave? I don’t like it cold.”

Waitress: “Oh, did you want me to leave the ice cream off?”

Me: “No, I want the ice cream but I just want the cake warm.”

Waitress: “But there is ice cream and it will melt in the microwave.”

Me: “Just warm the cake.”

Waitress: “But there is ice cream.”

Me: “Could you ask whoever is back there to warm the cake up before getting the ice cream, please?”

Waitress: “Okay, I will ask.”

Me: “Thanks.”

(My friend orders and then after several minutes our desserts arrive. My cake is completely cold.)

Me: “The cake is cold”

Waitress: “That’s because there is ice cream.”

Me: “You know what? This is fine, thanks.”
