Having options is good and convenient especially if you are picky (like me) but in a lot of cases it is confusing and annoying! You cannot go into a coffee shop now and just order TEA anymore, coz here is what will happen:
waiter: Hello sir/mam… what will you have today?
you: I will have a cup of tea…
waiter: what kind of tea?
you (happy to answer, coz just yesterday you learnt there is something callled green tea while watching a lipton commercial): I will have green tea..
waiter: green tea it is, would you like that with lemon, mint, or jasmine?
you (not knowing what you got yourself into): uhhhhhhh….. mint.
waiter: do you want the mint to boil with the tea or to be put after the tea is boiled?
you (shifting in your seat): uhhhhhhh……… uhhhhhhhhhh……. after.. after
waiter: would you like sugar?
You (relaxing after the conversation turned into something you know): yes please
waiter: how many pieces?
You (you have started yourself on a diet, but you say to yourself what the hell, it is for free ele be balash kater menno): 3 please.
waiter: brown or white sugar?
you (WTF??): white..
only then you are able to get you freakin’ cup of tea!!
Even if you decide to have a sandwich, you go inside the restaurant pick yourself a table, and wait. Finally you get noticed, coz the waiter was busy playing pikabooooooo with a baby…
waiter: hello sir/mam… what do you want to have today?
you (deciding to choose on the spot other wise there is no guarantee the waiter will come back in this lifetime): i will have a Steak sandwich.
waiter: with cheese?
you: yes please.
waiter: what kind of cheese, we have cheddar, goat, emmental? (sometimes they don’t even bother telling you the options)
you (cheddar is the one you know, so you think it is better to stick with something you know): cheddar
waiter: what kind of bread? we have origano, italian, french, white and brown (i already stated he is a kind waiter willing to provide info)
you (&*%#$#!!@%): uhh… white….
waiter: what kind of dressing do you want? italian, one thousand island, barbeque and honey something..
you (when will this nightmare end!!) NONE…
waiter: this sandwich comes with chips or salad, what would you like?
you (wiping your sweaty hands against your pants): chips…
waiter: what flavor, salt or ketchup or bla bla bla (he actually says real flavours but at this point this is what you hear)
you (grasping for air): salt
waiter: what dip do you want with that?
you: I want to get the hell out of here!!!
