Can I Retire Yet??

I seat an elderly couple a few days ago...

"Hi, Folks. Can I start you off with something to drink?"

The gentleman replies, "I'll have coffee." He adds, "black" as an after thought.
She says she'll have coffee too.

I bring them the coffee. I then realized the gentleman only answered for himself in regards to how he wanted his coffee so I ask the woman if she needs any cream for hers.

She pauses with a bewildered look and replies..."Oh no...I'll have the chipped beef on toast...THAT'S my favorite."

okay...*sigh* one S.O.S. special...as I'm in the process of writing this she taps me on the arm, points to her coffee and asks, "is there any cream for this?"

Seriously....can I please retire now?
