Silly Mother's Day Table
The wife says to him you should have brought your glasses and to stop complaining.
Sensing the right thing to do I right away ask if he would like a beverage. He says to me no nothing right now in a snarky way. The wife says I will have an ice tea. I then inquire as to what the boys would like and after 15-20 seconds they order a kid's menu offering, that being a smoothie.
Macho man says I will have what they are having. Sure I said you want one too! Sure he says.
So I return to the table with the ice tea and 3 smoothies in the plastic cups. I give the kids theirs' then start giving the man his plastic cup with the straw sticking out.
He pipes up and says that is a kid's drink. Yes I said it is. Well give me a beer then.
Now what did the moron think? Did he think maybe the kids ordered a freakin' beer or a glass of wine!!
I laughed after. He was okay after that. The tip you could imagine was not afterwards. Morons don't tip well.
