Picture an extraordinarily proper woman with lovely pearls at Highland Park Village Starbucks at mid-morning who blurts to the barista: “I need a naughty mommy drink.”
A few years ago at Cafe Pacific in the dead of summer I will just never forgot the couple at the next table. The girl was dressed in a very shiny dress and her date in a shiny new shirt. They asked the waiter to describe Cafe Pacific’s famous ice cream pecan ball dessert. After listening to the description the gal asked, “Can we have that to go?” Ice cream?
Several weeks ago on SideDish a commenter who goes by “IntheIndustry” reported on a post the he/she overheard a customer announce “We’re Yelpers” to the waiter as if that qualified them to receive special service. I about spit my screen when I read that.
How about you? What are some of the funniest thing you’ve overheard while dining?
