While Rivitman and the rest of us are trying to not be humbugs at Christmastime, this is what we got last night:
One order of French Onion Soup.....hold the onions.
We have a seafood cassoulet. I know, there can be no such thing....but it is fresh canellini beans slow cooked in a vegetable broth with lots of olive oil, then prawns and wild salmon and kale and what not near the end.
One order of seafood cassoulet, no salmon. From the same table!!
I thought at first it was my bitter waitress, screwing with my head. Then I suspected a chef buddy doing the same.....Nope, civilians. Civilians who thought we were stupid, inept and stubborn to not be able to accommodate their demands........
We googled the phone number on the reservation: Arlington, Virginia. A defence intelligence company.
No wonder we are blowing away $4 billion a week in Iraq.........
