Yes, this really happened to me a couple of weeks ago!

At lunch, I wanted a simple iced tea
But a tea with ice was not meant to be
The glass, smoothly tall
Held no cubes at all
Where all my ice went, was a mystery!

The waitress (who was not very nice)
Lectured, my request was imprecise
You must specify
For ice to supply
Next time, order your iced tea with ice!

This is crazy! The way I heard it was, back in the 60's they took acid to make the world weird. Now the world is weird, they take Prozac to make it normal!............very well written my friend!............pat

Hello Michelle … sometimes you wonder don't you. You order iced tea, but you have to ask for ice - weird! Thanks Michelle - Lindsay

It does seem redundant - thanks for your comment, Lindsay!

Hilarious, Michelle! I wonder if this waitress' reasoning extends to 'mashed potatoes?' LOL. Enjoyed! :) gw
