I am so unpicky it is not funny. If it is the least bit edible I will eat it.

BTW, Mooing steak ROCKS!

tweedee, they are really good. there's this place called primanti brother's in pittsburgh (and some other places, but htey started in the strip district of pgh.) and they put fries on sammiches. they're a big deal around here, really well-known and a really popular.

Whenever my aunt orders fried eggs in a restaurant, she says, "Cook them until they are as hard as a rock, and then cook them again."

As someone who will only eat a fried egg if the white is firm and the yolk is very runny, I can only say ewwwwwwww!

Is your aunt related to my husband by any chance? He's from England and always has to have his fried eggs cooked til crispy One time when I ordered some seafood in a restaurant, I think it was scallops, they were over cooked and rubbery. So when the waiter asked if everything was ok, I said NO Normally I would just eat it and shut up about it, but this time I really didnt like it and sent it back. Then I wondered if they would do something bad to the dinner

My sister has a friend who always goes through the same routines.

Is the coffee fresh?

Yes

How long has it been sitting in the pot

Not long

I'll have a cup

This coffee's not fresh, can you make me a fresh pot?!

**********

Then she'll turn to her husband and ask him how his meal is.

He says "Fine" and she'll say it looks overcooked.

He says, "No, it's fine"

Are you sure, it looks overdone.

After several rounds he agrees it overdone and gets to finish his meal in peace.

I don't go out to eat with them anymore.

I think eating eggs the way my aunt likes them would be like eating those rubber ones you can buy dogs to chew on!

If something is really bad, I will say something about it. I don't get nasty about it (that's just not me!), and I've never had a problem. My husband will eat it however they bring it to him because he doesn't want to cause trouble. And he is worried they will spit in his food!. If they brought him liver instead of what he ordered, he might say something! Knowing him, he'd probably pay for it and not eat it, then go somewhere else to get something to eat!
