Enjoy Every Day: Restaurant Edition

I enjoy people and don’t take myself seriously.  And laughter is good for the soul.  And food is good for the stomach.  This is what I do to try and enjoy every day — Restaurant Edition:

1) Whenever I go through a fast-food drive through, I hope and hope that the final food delivery is accompanied by their saying “sorry about your wait”.  When they do, I always retort with “it’s not your fault — I’m the one eating this stuff!”  I then pat my stomach and drive away.

2) When I order something to drink at a restaurant, I will often say “Diet Coke and water, but in separate glasses, please.”  I think it’s funny.  About 70% of the time, so do they.  This statement has a margarine of error of 70%.

3) I try to always leave a good tip.  If they have written a custom message on my bill, like:

Thankz!  Have a great day 🙂

I usually write:

And also with you!

because it’s liturgical and out of place.

I just think it’s important to enjoy every day.  Thankfully my wife has helped me not be too obnoxious.  That’s a fine line that I’m still learning.  She’s wonderful and won’t put up with it.
