>>Yeah, my first dinner at the in-laws I was asked what I would like to drink, I asked for iced tea...brother, you would have thought I farted really loud or something with the way they looked at me!
LOL. Same experience for me, but it was at a Wendy’s in Groton, Connecticut.
Back in 1975, we were at a restaurant in Stockholm. I asked the waiter, “By any chance, do you have sweet iced tea?”
Pensively, he said, “We haf tea....”
“We haf ice....”
With a brilliant smile he said , “YA! We haf ICED TEA!”
Soon, he reappeared with a sterling silver pot of hot water, a china cup & saucer with tea bag, a sugar bowl and a large glass of ice.
“That works for me!”
(that show of initiative earned the water a healthy tip!)
