Today's #jokeoftheday is about a man and a waiter who seemed to have different interpretations of what room temperature means.


Most times the term room temperature means an ambient, comfortable which is usually taken as 20°c in most parts of the world. 

However, this waiter took the term literally when he was asked to serve tea. It happened when a man visited a diner and ordered a grilled cheese sandwich.

Alongside the sandwich, the man asked the waiter to serve him a glass of room temperature sweet tea. 

His meal finally arrived, and when he took his tea, he discovered that it was scorching hot. The man yelled in pain, and distraughtly said to the waiter:

"I asked for this to be room temperature!"

The waiter answered, saying:

It is, sir. The kitchen is on fire."

Who can blame the waiter for trying his best to stick to the room temperature? Here is another tea joke that would knock your socks off.

Three men were in a hotel room in Soviet Russia, and the first two men opened a bottle of vodka.

The last one was, however, tired and decided to go to bed. Unfortunately, he couldn't find some sleep as his drunken friends were telling political jokes. 

Frustrated, he left the room and went downstairs to smoke and on his way back asked the receptionist to bring him some tea to their room in 5 minutes.


On getting to the room, the man joined the table and leaned towards a power outlet to say:

"Comrade major, we want some tea to room 62 please."

His friends laughed at him, but that soon ended when there was a knock on the door, and the receptionist brings a teapot.

The two men were shocked and fell silent. They were horrified by what they just witnessed. In an instant, the chatter ended, and the man went to sleep.

After a good night's rest, he woke up and noticed his friends were gone. Surprised, he went downstairs and asked the receptionist where they went.


The nervous receptionist revealed that the KGB came and took them before dawn. He was horrified and wondered why he was spared, and that was when the receptionist said:

"Well, comrade major did quite like your tea gag."
