I consider myself to be very low maintenance, so when I do require something extra I am terribly embarrassed. I was out to eat with the kids and I had a hankerin' for a certain kind of salad. With a half dozen substitutions, I could get this salad. I had to ask the Waitperson to substitute goat cheese for blue cheese, grilled chicken instead of fried, no onions...it was ridiculous and I was fully aware of this fact. I apologized to the lovely woman taking my order and I said "this is my last special request, could you serve my salad in a hat?" I figured this was a not so subtle way of letting her know that I was being a pain. Unfortunately, Lulu saw that she had written down "salad in a hat" under my order. I sheepishly had to explain that I was joking. I still wonder what the kitchen staff would have done with this request.
