I went to Pizza Express this evening, a pleasant Italian restaurant in the centre of Bath. After the meal had been consumed I couldn’t help but overhear the conversation from the opposite table between a party of four and the foreign waitress desperately trying to be helpful yet struggling a little with the situation and language. It was like a scene from Fawlty Towers.

Waitress: “Any drinks or dessert?”

Diner: “We’ll have a coffee and a hot chocolate please”

Waitress: “Just coffee chocolate?”

Diner: “Yes, a coffee and hot chocolate”

Waitress: “I can sprinkle chocolate on the coffee?”

Diner: “No, I would like a cup of coffee and a cup of chocolate?”

Waitress: “We have no chocolate”

Diner: “OK, just two coffees then”

Waitress: “So no chocolate on the coffee?”

Diner: “You said you don’t have any chocolate!”

Waitress: “No chocolate. I can sprinkle some on coffee”

All that is just a trimmed down version of the whole conversation. Bless the waitress though, she did try. When she came over to us I was tempted to totally confuse her by asking “Can I order a chocolate pizza?” This would probably have sent the poor dear off her trolley though, resulting in a Mars Bar Margarita, a Pepperoni Espresso and a crying foreign waitress.

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
