For some reason, many people still underestimate the cleverness of the elderly. In this joke, one waitress attempted to follow a silly policy only to be outsmarted by her senior customer.


One day, an elderly couple went to have breakfast at a restaurant. They wanted the special for $2.99 which was two eggs, a side of bacon, hash browns, and toast.

"It sounds quite good," the older woman told the waitress, "except I don't want the eggs."

"In that case, I'll have to charge you $3.49 because you'd be ordering a la carte," replied the server.

"So what you're saying is, I'd have to pay for NOT taking the eggs?" the woman asked incredulously.

"Yep!" said the waitress, unbothered by the elderly woman's reaction.

"I'll take the special, then," the woman said.


"How do you want your eggs?" asked the waitress.

"Raw and in the shell," said the woman.

She took the eggs on her way out and proceeded to bake a cake when she got home.


One night, three men sat in a bar talking about their level of control over their wives. The first two men bragged for a long time about how they could pretty much get their wives to do anything.

After a while, they realized the third man was silent. "What about you?" they asked him.

The third man said, "Last night, my wife came to me on her hands and knees, man."

The first two men were highly impressed. They asked: "What happened after?"

"She told me to come out from under the bed and fight like a man."


One day, an esteemed lawyer returned from work to find his wife crying due to a leaking sink.

He rested down his suitcase and took off his clean business suit. He then tried to fix the sink himself.

After quite some time, the man finally realizes he can't do the job and decides to phone a maintenance man.

The plumber arrives and within three moves he fixes the sink. When he's done, he tells the lawyer, "That will be $95."

The lawyer is outraged. He can't believe he has to pay $95 for no more than five minutes of work.

Because of his status, though, he knows he has to pay and gives the maintenance man the fee.

The lawyer is still appalled by the price. "It's absurd!" he screams out of anger.

"I'm a top lawyer in town and not even I can make $95 in less than five minutes of work!"

The maintenance man shrugs before responding, "Honestly, I didn't either when I was a lawyer."
