Sweet Revenge With A Toast To The Elderly

Lady V enjoys dining in a vegetarian restaurant located downtown. Despite its dilapidated outlook, the restaurant serves very tasty and authentic vegetarian dishes at very reasonable prices. The flickering lights, cracking walls and malfunctioning KDK fans only add to the authenticity of the place rather than driving its loyalists away. Even the servers in the restaurants belong to the last generation, with an average age of 60, minimum.

Lady V can understand if the restaurant owner rides on the passage of time and tide to whet the appetite of its patrons but she doubts that being old is a valid enough reason to justify a person to be rude.

Lady V: Auntie, can I have a packet of Loh-Mee to be packed away please?

Server: Ok.

(15 mins later, server brought a packet of Loh-Mee to Lady V)

Lady V: Auntie, sorry about this, but can I have the gravy and the noodles packed separately?

Server: Cannot do that.

Lady V: I'm sure you can, because it will be another hour before I am eating the Loh-Mee.

Server: Too bad, you just have to eat it faster. We never pack the gravy separately.

Lady V: Auntie, but I have been here many times before and you always packed it separately for me. So why can't you do it this time?

Server: (raising her voice in annoyance) We NEVER do that.

Lady V: (obviously offended by the defensiveness and raised her left eye-brow) Oh, I see...unless I have mistaken your vegetarian shop for another shop, but I do believe you are the only vegetarian restaurant within this precint, no?

Server: Yes, we are the ONE and ONLY.

Lady V: (smirk) In that case, I am not mistaken. (taking a step forward and glared coldly into the eyes of the server) So you ARE able to do so.

Server: (Intimidated and started to shiver)You say whatever you like lor....(raised her voice up another notch, as though trying to gain the attention/support of other people present) if you think whatever you say is true.

Lady V: (Smiled coldly) Auntie, you don't have to talk so rudely and sarcastically like that. I am merely clarifying a doubt. But don't you worry, you won't have to entertain anymore questions like that this. We won't be patronising your restaurant anymore. (Gave the server one last look, put her bill on the counter and left the restaurant with grace)

Server: Ok lor....

Lady V always has respect for the nature and the livings around her. She believes that in order to upkeep her sophisticated image, she will not smoke while walking and refuses to curse at other outrageous drivers on the road. As much as she believes in her beliefs, she can never contain her rage when it comes to rudeness, not even if the culprit is an old lady in her seventies.
