    Reminds me of the time we were thinking of buying a sailing boat – x amount for the boat, then XAMOUNT FOR THE SAIL , etc. COULDN’T BELIEVE IT! – told it to shove it where the sun don’t shine!! What’s the point of having a sailing boat without sails??

    A nod to Steven Wright.

    Looks like another place for Wiley Bears to visit. Good luck getting away with giving them empty plates.

    That’s now so bad. Now, when I was a kid we had to bring our own plate. And we had to walk 15 blocks in 3 inches of snow to get there.

    wait what, so we’re paying for the plate and being charged extra for food to be put on it? Maybe I’ll eat somewhere else…

    It’s like the call-to-action commercials for gadgets. There’s this unwritten set of rules that includes the “if you act now, we’ll DOUBLE the offer!” bit. That used to mean the item priced at $19.99 wasn’t worth even half that money, so they send you two. But now, they still put that double-the-offer line in, but quickly add, “just pay a separate fee”. How much is that fee?

    Our new Fiestaware dish set means blue plate special every night. We got a mix of medium and dark blue (Cubs blue and Twins blue – guess where we’ve lived?).

    I never had a blue plate special. What is so special about a “blue plate special”?

    The door is not right. The wording is in the wrong direction and “OPEN” sign wouldn’t be on the inside (unless the cafe’ were closed).

    It would be funnier if they were wearing masks and it was the “COVID Blue Plate” special.

    The retirement home where my grandmother lived had the prettiest blue plates. They weren’t completely blue but they had some kind of design. I didn’t understand why a room with nice plates and such would be called “hospitality”. I later learned that what I thought that should be was on the third floor. As in the military, they called that “sick bay”. Years later, I learned that before they built the nursing home on the same property, that was the section for people needing to be in a nursing home.
