Embarrassed A Friend

Dear Al:
A couple of days ago we embarrassed a friend of ours, but we didn't mean it. He always drags us to a restaurant that sometime serves American fortune cookies, but now they are stating that they are authentic Chinese fortune cookies. Usually they just bring us traditional Chinese deserts but the last time we was their they served us fortune cookies. We told the waiter who looked angry the whole night "no thanks" politely, but he keep saying that we would like these new Chinese fortune cookies. We then look at each other with beaver faces, like Rockchild's friend Alice, and told the waiter if he ment American fortune cookies. The waiter then yelled back to us "They are Chinese!", and threw the plate of cookies on our table like we are prisoners! After we gave each other the beaver face again, we paid and took the cookies. When we escaped the restaurant we ate the fortune cookies and one of our fortunes stated "Don't get even... get odd!", so we both stared into the restaurant with our faces pressed up against it's windows almost a hole minute. Our friend then got mad at us and said "How can you both do that? I eat here!" We told him we was sorry, but he is not talking to us!

Al, we don't understand why he would still want to eat their after the way we was treated and not be friends anymore with us! What do you think??

Dear Dormitory Boys:
You get treated like crap at this restaurant he drags you to, and he's embarrassed of what you did? Sounds like it doesn't matter to swellhead how you two was treated, he's a regular there! He's not a friend, so I wouldn't worry about Beavis.

If you know when he visits that restaurant, and if you have time, go there and give him beaver faces with your face pressed up against their window. Make Rockchild proud!

I didn't know was invented in the states! We've been had!

I thought it was improper to eat the cookies in the restaurant. Is that really true?

Red Hot Sexy Papa said...

Hmmmm great advice!

ramblings said...

Oh yes, go embarrass him more!!

I would pay money to see that.

Webmiztris said...

don't think I didn't catch your making fun of their 'was' instead of 'were' usage!!

Dear AL said...

lastlifeinmyuniverse, that look at me! I didn't invent! Alright!

The Stiltwalker, you can eat them anywhere you want. They're not Chinese fortune cookies! You'll be ok!

Red Hot Sexy Papa, I know... I know!

Ramblings, I'm not sure I would pay to see that, specially when I'm trying to eat!

Webmiztris, you're good! I was just having a little fun! Their English is still pretty good!

Al, I have a problem. Lately, fortune cookies have been less fortune and more declarations of the obvious. Like, no "You will have money to live old with" but lots of "you are a nice person with a kind heart."

but was the food good?

ramblings said...

Well true, but I think if you were finished stuffing your face, then it would be hilarious

Angel said...

Yum fortune cookies, noone else I know likes them.

just me said...

Hi Al,
This is my first time visiting your site--and I LOVE It! I will be back, probably daily, but no, I'm not a stalker. I just need a good laugh now and then.

As for the Chinese Fortune Cookies. Is there Lotto in China? Cuz all my fortunes have had my lucky lotto numbers in them. Just wondering...

Is now the time to burst the bubble about Mexican food? You go south of the border and you aren't going to find that many tacos and burritos like we have. Mexican food is entirely different.

Americans versions of chinese, mexican and other foods is nothing but a lie..lol

Dear AL said...

Jessica, return the cookie for a full refund!

Tracie B., I love Chinese food, but I bet my Chicken with Brocoli was invented by Colonel Sanders!

Ramblings, all my life I thought fortune cookies were Chinese! My life is over!

Angel, probably because they all know it's fake!

Erin, they're not Chinese! Sheesh!

Muse, why did you have to go there? Next someone will tell me that Spaghetti is not Italian! God help us all!

Tina from Germany said...

Now, I'm getting you confused completely:
Well, Spaghetti come from Italy, true.
But they had been already invented in CHINA about 2000 before Christ....

Dear AL said...

Tina? I hate you!
