The other day, I approached a table and I asked them if they wanted an appetizer before their meal.
"Sure," they said, "We'll have an Awesome Blossom."
An 'Awesome Blossom' is a popular onion flower common at a restaurant that shall remain unnamed. My restaurant, on the other hand, has onions in a tower form.
I was forced to kindly explain that we didn't have the onion flowers, but we have onion towers. Needless to say, they weren't too pleased.
"Can't you arrange them like a flower?" The wife asked.
"No, ma'am, we only have towers." I slowly explained.
"What kind of place has onion towers?" She said, snipping her words. At this point, I had trouble holding back a smile.
"Well, we're that kind of place." I said, attempting to keep a straight face.
"You know what?" She said, "We're going to go to [unnamed restaurant establishment].
The couple ended up walking out unfed and in an un-awesome mood.
