The £2.99 Special

We went to breakfast at a restaurant where on the ‘Seniors’ Special Menu was advertised: ‘Two eggs, bacon, hash browns and toast with tea or coffee – £2.99.’

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

‘Then, I’ll have to charge you £3.49 because you’re ordering a la carte,’ the waitress warned her.

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

‘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..


THEY’VE been around the block more than once!
