How specific are you in directions you give your waiter(ess) when you go out to eat? Conversation I had a couple days ago at the Yardhouse.
me: "I'll have the gorgonzola burger no onions no bun. can I get a lettuce bun instead?
me: "and what sides do you have instead of fries?"
waiter: "baked potato, mashed potato, rice, sweet potato fries."
me: "do you have any broccoli?"
waiter: "we have mixed vegetables."
me: "what kind of vegetables are they?"
waiter: "(some sort of paleo-approved mixed vegetable.)"
me: what's it cooked in?
waiter: "a sort of asian soy sauce and--"
me: "oh no no soy. can you cook them in olive oil instead?"
waiter: "We can steam them."
me: "okay great thanks."
I'm sure I've driven a couple waiters (and friends) nuts figuring out exactly what I'm going to be putting in my mouth. How about you guys?
