I was waiting tables at an exclusive country club, when an elegantly dressed woman that I had been serving, spilled her bowl of Manhattan clam chowder all over her white linen skirt.
She began dabbing at it furiously with her napkin.
Having had plenty of experience with getting out food stains, I went over and asked her, “May I bring you some club soda?”
“Young lady”, she barked, “I’ll be the judge of when I’ve had enough to drink. Bring me another Martini”.
