First and foremost, I would like to say that I woke up at noon today. The life of a college student is great. There is no other time in my life that I will be able to wake up at noon and get away with it. I won't be able to do this when I get a job...unless such a job exists where I can waste my morning away. And that's the thing, I don't necessarily love waking up at noon, because there are so many things I could have done - like relax in bed, eat breakfast, watch tv - ya know, get stuff done :)
So I went to Perkins with my roommate after my productive morning and all she wanted was pancakes, but she order the meal where you get three pancakes on the side. I did the same, but added chocolate chips to them. I'm 22 and I need to have chocolate chips on my pancakes. When we make them at home my nephew and I get the chocolate chip pancakes and the "adults" get regular pancakes.
Anyway, the waiter did a horrible job and forgot our silverware, lemonade refills, and (most importantly) my friend's pancakes. That's the one thing she was craving and she had to wait 15 extra minutes for them. By the time they came she was full from her eggs and hash browns.
Despite our waiter's lack of waiting skills I still tipped him and so did my friend. Even though all of his mistakes were his and not the cook's, he truly looked sorry for his mistakes. Maybe he was having an off day, or maybe he just sucked, but I figured he could use the tips to pay for some waiter classes. Oh wait, they don't provide those because serving food isn't that hard.
I want to apologize for sounding bitter. I should end on a happy note. The chocolate chip pancakes were DELICIOUS!
