Don't refer to the waiter as crabby.

If he's short don't call him a shrimp

and just forget the fancy hors d' oeuvre

if it's served with a clam juice dip


Don't assume they all prefer swimming

or have an aversion to sauce of tartar.

Never suggest a basket of bread balls

or mention when they're out of water.

in short..........


Never order a seafood dish

when you're dining with a fish.


in conclusion........


Never, oh never neglect

staying politically correct.

ONE HAS NO RIGHT WHATSOEVER TO EMBARASS OR INTIMIDATE A WAITER/WAITRESS WITH CRUEL COMMENTS ABOUT THEIR PHYSICAL APPEARANCE...HOWEVER...IF THE SERVICE IS LOUSY, SAY SO...IN THE POLITICALLY CORRECT MANNER. YOU KNOW HOW IT'S DONE...WITH A SMILE, AND 'NO TIP' AT ALL! THANKS FOR SHARING. LOVE, BLESSINGS & FAITH...
