A Quail and a Duck

A humorous thing happened tonight and happily for us, the customers involved saw the humor and were not upset.

The menu contained a bird duo of grilled quail and smoked duck. It also contained a roasted breast of Moulard duck. Said customer to the server, "We'll have the quail and duck." And it being a night of several tables ordering a single entrée and sharing it, the server put in the order for the bird duo. And when it arrived at the table, the customer wanted to know where the duck entrée was.

Now I should be upset that the server did not clarify the order with the customer before putting it into the kitchen, but I'm just not in the mood for that. Rather, I find myself chuckling about it (and relieved that the customers were good sports).
