Whats the funniest thing you've ever witnessed while eating at a restaraunt?

My brother and I stopped into the Clock on 441 in Plantation Fla one night for something to eat after a night out clubbing. This restaurant is'nt known for great food but they made a great milk shake so I ordered one with my food.
When the waitress brought out the milkshake I looked up and she was covered in it, she said I guess the machine must be messed up, my brother and I locked eyes and lost it, I was on the floor, he tipped over and was screaming in hysterics. Apparently she was new and did'nt realize you had to turn off the machine before you pulled out the metal cup full of Milkshake and the beater was still spinning.

OMG...THAT is so funny, and I would have lost it as well.
The only "funny" thing what had happened to us was in Key West. We ordered our food and drinks, and enjoying ourselves.
My husband and I took our 2 sons....(older, I might add)
We were wondering why our kids were getting really relaxed, and funny......until we discovered that their "Virgin Daiquiris" really had a lot of booze in it.....lol.
They were both sleeping on the way home....LOL.

Dessert. Sometimes I wonder why such a tiny piece of cheesecake. I went with someone several years ago to Dennys for coffee and dessert and the server brought out the slice of cheesecake on a plate. He asked if it was supposed to be a joke, the slice was so tiny, compared to what he eats at home. I too, wondered why some desserts are so tinsey. Dont skimp, give me the moneys worth. Pie ala mode, brownie sundaes, dont be so skimpy! It was funny, though, to see his expression when such a small slice for a full grown man, lol.

Heres another one...same place.

My brother and I are in a booth, a guy and women sit in another booth, the women is faceing me, they must have come from a club or function that required a very nice evening gown and a tux, their food arrives and she grabs the mustard bottle and as shes squeezing it it explodes onto her gown, once again were on the floor and the guy turns around and says...pleeeeeeease stooop! even though we knew immediatly he wanted to join in, and we watched him on his knees with napkins mopping up the mustard and rather gallantly fighting back the laughter I might add.

My pet peeve about dessert is this..you're really looking forward to dessert, maybe you're out with the girls for lunch...you ate a smaller lunch to save room, pondered over your decision, and just as you order, your friend says "Do you want to share that?"
Do you really want to say in front of the waitress, "NO!"
But I do....

My friends and I were traveling across country, and we stopped at a "unique" diner in Fallon, Nevada attached to a dimly-lit casino when in walks a woman who had to be in her 70s wearing extremely heavy makeup, mile high hair, and what appeared to be a short night gown or mini mu-mu. She is obviously drunk beyond words and proceeds to crawl into a booth on her hands and knees when to our complete disbelief, we all realized she was not wearing any underwear !!! We thought, surely she will be thrown out after the display to the whole diner, but the waitstaff gave her a warm welcome and asked if she wanted her "usual". At this point, I was second guessing if I should finish my own meal.

This is not funny...but something I remember.

We went to a place that was supposed to be made like a mid 1800s type of place, and it was in an old Farm house, huge one, and it was really nice, and the tea was good, while waiting for the food, you are just sitting there talking, what else are you doing? You are in a place you dont know, an area you dont live in, you start looking around and what do you see?





























RAT TRAPS...........CHECK PLEASE!

I took my children often to restaurants. On one occasion we ordered Soulavaki. Of course it was at the time when he was just getting interested in what the girls thought. Well he did what he was taught not to do. He tried to push the meat off the skewer with his fork. Just as he did this the waitress walked past the table. The meat, his fork and his plate of food ended up at her feet. She replaced everything with a smile, but all he wanted to do was to leave.
