  • Funny story


    While ordering breakfast today, my wife told the waiter that she's gluten-free.

    He smiled, nodded, and then asked her what kind of toast she would like...

    Haa haa... I hope she said bacon with a side of crunchy bacon.

      Not everyone knows what "gluten free" means. She could have just placed her order and asked for no bread.

          Gluten-free bread does exist, though it's more likely the waiter just didn't know what gluten is.

            That's about as bad as the waitress who told me they have white bread after I told her I can't have any wheat.
            Most people don't realize how much energy it takes for me to pretend to be normal.

            If I wanted to listen to an asshole, I'd fart.

              I am said wife in this story. I started out just ordering the Greek frittata with no cheese and asked to sub fresh berries for the potatoes and toast. I only mentioned the gluten free thing as an emphasis. That's when he asked which type of toast I would like. :-)
              My sister wanted to know if I asked if they use Omega 3 eggs. But I figured I better quit while I was ahead. The restaurant was called "The Egg and I" and the frittata with ham, sun-dried tomatoes, asparagus and pesto was AWESOME!

                  This reminds me of the time I ordered a pasta dish (before reading PB of course) at a restaurant that had brown rice pasta available as a substitute for those of us who are gluten-free. They brought me a lovely plate of brown rice linguine...with a side of garlic bread right there on the same plate.
