Well Done On Getting It Well Done

, , | Working | September 26, 2017

(My family is on holiday. We decide to have breakfast at the hotel restaurant. As English is not the native language there, we have a few communication issues. This is the funniest.)

Mum: *hailing a waiter* “Hi, can I have an egg well-done?”

Waiter #1: “Yes, ma’am. Thank you, ma’am!”

(He walks off with a big smile, and a few minutes later, the egg hasn’t arrived. My mum hails another waiter.)

Mum: “Hi, can I have an egg well-done?”

Waiter #2: “Thank you very much, ma’am!”

(Before he walks off, my mum decides to ask.)

Mum: “So, how long do I have to wait?”

Waiter #2: “Sorry? Wait?”

Mum: “When can I get my egg?”

Waiter #2: “You want an egg, ma’am?”

Mum: “Yes, a well-done egg.”

Waiter #2: “Oh, thank you, ma’am.”

(The light-bulb goes on for my mum.)

Mum: “No, no, your service is good, but what I want is an egg, cooked both sides. No runny yolk.”

Waiter #2: “Yes, ma’am. I’ll get it for you right away.”

(The egg finally came and we realised that the waiters had thought that my mum was complimenting them at first.)
