An old couple went to breakfast at a restaurant where the 'pensioners special' was two eggs, bacon, hash browns and toast for £5.99

'Sounds good,‘ Said the lady. ‘But I don't want the eggs..'

'Then l'll have to charge you £8.50 because you're ordering a la carte,' the waitress warned her.

'You mean I'd have to pay for not taking the eggs?' she asked incredulously.

‘Yes' stated the Waitress.

'I'll take the special then' the old lady replied.

‘How do you want your eggs?' the waitress asked.

‘Raw and in the shell,' was the reply.

She took the two eggs home and baked a cake.
