On Applebees' menu the description for the French dip sliders says, "served with au jus", I complained to the waitress.

Nah, she was about 10 years older than me. But did make a good Arnold Palmer.

I bet whenever you complained to Ms Palmer her reply was something like "Alright Buddy Boy, you want aus jus? I'll give you aus jus, and it's coming right up!!"

Maybe not aloud to you, but I bet she did utter or think it to herself.

Waitresses in a chain restaurant might not have the pull to revise the menus.

Man, you just reminded me of Grizzlebee's from Sealab 2021. Now I'll have to re-watch every episode. Ha ha.

I did get 30% off the bill. She claims that it was because the appetizers were late. But I like to think that happened because of the turmoil which broke out in the kitchen when she pointed out that the menus said, "served with with juice."

And I though I was pedantic. Maybe divorce taught me to let go more than I thought.
