    One hasn't truly lived until sending back a straw

    Have you ever noticed silverware at restaurants is made out of the cheapest tin from China that you'd ever want to see? :waiting

    I bent a spoon trying to eat soup out of a bowl ... true story :red

    my first few courses at an uber-fancy restaurant where a bit unnerving as they took away silverware after each course that I hadn't even touched yet.
    as the meal went on I took on a "get that fork away from me, i'm sick of looking at it" attitude.

    Your way too close to the keyboard, tweedie. Get to work on those Ionian(s) or we'll be sending you back.

    I sent back a cup of coffee with a huge lipstick stain on the mug. I'm not an overly fussy guy, but that was a little too much for me.

    Probably a good idea. A lot of times when you see bent flatware it's a consequence of having been flushed down the toilet.

    No flatware sent back by me..

    However, for a couple years I waited tables in West Maui. Nice resort with many Japanese tourists.

    I'll never forgot one such patron calling me to his table, pointing to his plate and saying :

    " Lice hard rike stone "
