The Sword That Got Away

From Orlando, Florida USA
- I work in a very upscale restaurant in Central Florida, which of
course is a very tourist driven town. You meet people from all over the world,
and from all sorts of different lifestyles. A lot of these people save their
money for years to come down to Florida and try new and different things.
One night after taking an order for a party of five, a lady who had just
ordered the swordfish grabs my arm and says; "Do you remove the sword before
bringing that to the table, or do I have to do that myself?"
To which I replied; "Ma'am, I bring a special sword removing utensil
with the plate, which snaps the sword loose from the fish, and you get to
keep it as a souvenir."
Do you have a great restaurant
story you would like to share?
