and what did you have for breakfast today?

by jonah jones / January 20, 2005 10:47 PM PST

We went to a breakfast at a restaurant where the 'senior special" was 2 eggs, bacon, hash browns and toast for $1.99. "Sounds good" my wife said, " but I don't want the eggs."
Then I'll have to charge you $2.49 because you are ordering a la carte, the waitress warned her.

You mean I'd have to pay for not eating the eggs?" My wife asked incredulously. I'll take the special.

How do you want your eggs?

Raw and in the shell." my wife replied. She took the 2 eggs home.

moral of the story? DON'T MESS WITH SENIORS!!!!!!!
