HAPPY TALK: The smart senior

An elderly friend went to breakfast at a restaurant where the 'seniors' special' was two eggs, bacon, hash browns and toast for £2.99.


"Sounds good," his 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 for not taking the eggs?" the wife asked incredulously.


"YES!!" stated the waitress.


"I'll take the special then."


"How do you want your eggs?" the waitress asked.


"Raw and in the shell," the wife replied.  She took the two eggs home and baked a cake.


The moral of the story is don’t mess about with seniors.
