Regarding smart-ass waiters.

Posted: July 2, 2014 in Humor

So I was at a seafood restaurant with some friends and the waiter came over to take our order. He vinyl-decal-sticker-7030goes over the specials, then asks if we have any questions. My buddy did. The conversation went like this:

“So how are the lobster today?”

See? Perfectly legitimate question, right? I mean, I’ve heard waiters and waitresses praising their latest lobster haul, talking about their size and whatnot. The waiter, however, felt compelled to respond with this gem:

“Oh, they pretty much know we’re going to boil them and kill them, but they seem to be holding up pretty well.”

He said this without losing eye contact, with a perfectly straight face, and with a deadpan delivery. We stared at him silently for about 3-seconds before the table broke into laughter.

So yeah, smart-ass waiter. Hilarious, but a smart-ass.


Gimme a holler.
