The Swedish Chef is suffereing from a very bad back ache today and had to rest and stay in the room. So we decided to order for in-room dining. There will be no morning walks today.
SC : Good afternoon, I would like to order lunch.
Let’s start with the bread basket – croissant, muffins and ensaimada.
“And I want Wiener schnitzel with french fries.”
Room Service: “So sir you want pizza?”
SC: “No! not the pizza, the schintzel.”
Room Service : “Yes sir pizza.”
SC: “No! Not the pizza, the Schnitzel” bellowed the Swedish Chef in frustration. The Swedish chef’s Wifie leaned over and whispered, “Spell it out for them, S-C-H-N..”
SC: “No! Not pizza, the Schnitzel. No! not AND fries, but WITH Fries.” THe Swedish Chef rolled his eyes in exasperation. “Can you please repeat our order so I know you got it right?”
The Swedish Chef patiently listened as the Room Service Operator repeats the order. “Yes that seems correct. Thank you.” as he hangs up the phone with a sigh.
After a few seconds the phone rang and someone on the other line confirms our order. “Yes .. I ordered Weiner Schnitzel. You spelled it wrong on the menu as werner schnitzel, you know that don’t you? ”
“It should be Weiner Schnitzel. not skitsel. not schitchel. and definitely not pizza.”
Sniffing and scurrying back to my corner, I waited for that knock on the door. “Either it’s a schintzel or a pizza it will always look good in my bowl.”
