DAVE: What's the worst customer you ever had?
WAITRESS: I had a guy yelling and screaming. He called the order in over his car phone. And we don't do orders over the phone. He wanted to eat here. He wanted the Drench Fip lunch special. The guy came in screaming. Mind you I put the order in as soon as he walked in just like my boss told me. He came in screaming "And she didn't put my order in and she was rude to me" One of the customers went out after him.
DAVE: Was that your worst day?
WAITRESS: Yeah that was it. I was pretty pissed off.

WAITRESS: Theres seven there? Oh then 8.
DAVE: Plus all the obscene ones she is not telling us about.
LARRY: whats the biggest tip you got at the diner.
WAITRESS: $20 off of 2 dollars. The guy puts $2 for the soup. And all he had was a $20. So I said, don't break a 20 for me. I mean the guy was a good customer no big deal. So I took the 2 then he put the 20 down. So he said I'm a marine. You never bet a marine!
LARRY: You never bet a marine?
WAITRESS: No, I guess not.
LARRY: Wait Rishard is a marine. I bet him all the time.
DAVE: Yeah but he is a peaceful marine or a merchant marine or something.
DAVE: Say, these diners are really a cover up for UFOs right?
WAITRESS: Oh yeah, aliens land here all the time in the back.
LARRY: Are there any questions you wanna ask us?
WAITRESS: No. But I will check out your web site and I will tell all my friends to check out the site.
