Pearls before swine – Post Scripts

Herm Albright

The smartly dressed man walked into an upscale restaurant with several friends one afternoon for a business lunch and immediately began barking orders somewhat rudely to the hardworking waiters and waitresses at their table. After complaining about the service on several occasions and asking for new water glasses at least twice, the obnoxious diner finally gave his order to the waiter: “I want some oysters, but they must be just right–neither too large nor too small, neither old nor tough, and they mustn’t be salty. I want them real cold, and right away.”

“Yes, sir,” the waiter calmly replied, bowing. “With or without pearls?”
