 Okay, so the H.H. and I go to lunch at one of the restaurant chain's that's known for its home-style cooking. I order a salad and a hard-boiled egg. I specifically did not ask for the egg on the salad because the last time I did, they did strange things to it. Seriously. So my salad comes but no egg. I ask the waitress for the egg and she comes back with a hard-boiled egg cut in half and the yolk removed.  I know its healthier to just eat the white but I want my yolk. So I reiterate that I would like a hard-boiled egg. The next time she comes back it's with deviled eggs. Really? How hard can this be? But at this point I've given up and say that's fine. I eat my salad and have almost finished when another waitress shows up. Yup, you guessed it, she'd brought my hard-boiled eggs. 
The moral of this story...if you want to 'have it your way' better go to Burger King.
