That million dollar question!!!

Do you remember how I often try to break ice with the waiters/waitresses in a restaurant by responding to their perfunctory “Can I get you something else?” with a “Sure. A million dollars would help”? You probably also remember how that resulted in some hilarious responses (the waitress who said “Sure, it will cost you two”) and some inspiring conversations (the waiter who wants to start his own pizza place outside Milwaukee)?

Well, last night was one more memorable one.

The young lady had laid down dinner for me and my teammate and asked the usual question. I gave my usual response and waited to see her reaction.

She looked at all the numbers and figures my teammate and I had jotted down on a few pieces of paper strewn all over the table for the last fifteen minutes and then looked at me and said “A million dollars? Business that bad, huh?”.

I was like – Awesome!!! That is total sass!!

I laughed out aloud and let her know that I have a ten year old daughter at home who she reminded me of πŸ™‚

    Rajib, since you live in GA, I should warn you if you walk around making statements like that in public, you’re probably going to get an ‘Amen’ from the protestants within earshot πŸ™‚
