T​he American Breakfast Game

H​ave at it

1y ago

O​k, the rules of this game are very simple.

I​f you ever find yourself in an American Diner having breakfast you must very simply state your order. And you win if the waitress doesn't have to ask you anything after you've ordered your dish.

N​ow there's a catch because you cannot simply say "Hi I'd like some eggs please". It's a lot more complicated than that.

H​ere's how it normaly goes:

"​Hi could I have some eggs please?"

"​Scrambled, omelete, or sunny side up?"

​ "Scrambled please"

"​What sort of potatoes would you like; homefires, fries, hashbrowns, or corned-beef hash?"

​ "Hashbrowns please"

"​Would you like sausage or bacon?"

​ "Sausage please"

"​Would you like toast?"

​ "Yes"

"​Would you like; Whole-grain, multigrain, whole-wheat, gluten-free, or white bread?"

​ "White bread please"

"​Would you like butter or marmalade?

​ "Both please"

"​Also would you like some coffee?"

​ "Sure"

"​And would you like Decaf?

​ "No"

"​Milk or sugar"

​ "No"


N​ow your challenge is to go into a good old boys American Diner and order yourself breakfast in one go.

  • Surely they'd still say "Will that be all today?" No one can win this.

    But when I'm in an American diner, demmit, I'm going to try.

  • In the Waffle House yesterday:

    Waitress: "What'll it be?"

    Me: "Regular order of hash browns, scattered & covered. Side of crisp bacon. Blueberry waffle with maple syrup. Coffee, black."

    Waitress: "Thanks, hun!"

    Mission accomplished.
