An Average Customer

A London restaurant was renowned for its elegance, with plush furnishings and exquisite chandeliers. Meals were served on fine china and drinks were poured into crystal goblets.

Everything was perfect until one day when a guest began to enjoy her meal and the food needed a touch of salt. 

Reaching for the beautiful silver shaker, she quickly discovered that it contained pepper. In fact, both silver shakers contained pepper.

She signaled to the waiter—who politely informed her that she must be mistaken because each table always had one salt shaker and one pepper shaker. The woman quietly picked up the first shaker and sprinkled a little pepper on the side of her plate.Then she picked up the second shaker and did the same. The waiter apologized profusely, then rushed to bring a salt shaker. He returned with the maitre d’ who offered complimentary desserts to atone for the mistake.

"My goodness,” the woman said, somewhat embarrassed by the attention. “It’s not that important. It was just a simple mix-up.”

“But, madame,” the maitre d’ replied, “what if you had been the Queen?”
