The $2.99 Special

We went to breakfast at a restaurant where the 'seniors' special' was two eggs, bacon, hash browns and toast for $2.99.

'Sounds good,' my wife said. 'But I don't want the eggs.'

'Then, I'll have to charge you three dollars and forty-nine cents because you're ordering a la carte,' the waitress warned her.

'You mean I'd have to pay for not taking the eggs?' my wife asked incredulously.

'Sorry, yes' stated the waitress.

'I'll take the special then,' my wife said.

'How do you want your eggs?' the waitress asked.

'Raw and in the shell,' my wife replied. She took the two eggs home and baked a cake...

*Thanks to my SISTER in-law Terry for this funny email!


  1. Seems to be the way things are going nowadays...very cute.

  2. Good ONe! I think these things actually happen which is ridiculous!

  3. I shouldn't have looked at your post this morning. I haven't eaten breakfast and now I'm hungry!!

  4. Funny! Thanks for the smile this morning.

  5. Ha Ha!!! Very funny.

    I hope this one is a true one - - - you never know about these e-mail stories - - - but this one is just soooo good, I hope it's true.

  6. That's funny and also true! lol

  7. LOL..That is so funny! I want to go do that, just for the laugh of it! Come say hi :D

  8. The breakfast was a delicious bargain!
    You'd asked about my pheasant plate. It's unmarked. But I suspect it's Limoges, as the roses exactly match the smaller plate with the garland border. Could be Bavarian, though. I wish I knew! I have two pheasant plates. The other one has 2 indecipherable marks. I wish I could take a Nancy Drew-like class on Dish Investigations. :-)

  9. I've actually experienced some things that make about that much sense. LOL

  10. You rock!!!! :) I will also try asking for the eggs in the shell :)
