What Waiters Say

Waiter

    When dining recently in restaurants
    at dinner time or luncheons

    I notice that there's been a change
    in how a waiter functions.

    The waiter often brings the menu
    and with a touch of fervor

    Lets me know what is his name and says,
    "Today I'll be your server."

    But when an usher shows me to my seat
    when I attend the theater,

    I never hear the usher's name or
    "Tonight I'll be your seater."

    And when a barber says I'm next
    I never hear the barber utter,

    "Let me provide you with my name,
    for today I'll be your cutter."


    I much prefer the older way but
    if the waiter's choice is newer,

    I'll cheerfully announce my name and say,
    "Today I'll be your chewer."
