Waitress: I'm afraid coffee is only served in the lounge.
D: Then can you send someone to the lounge to get a cup of coffee and bring it in here with my pudding.
W: I'm afraid coffee is only served and drunk in the lounge.
D: Then when my pudding is ready, could you take it into the lounge so that I may eat it while drinking my coffee.
W: I'm afraid puddings are served and eaten only in the dining room.
D: (after a pause) There's no way round this problem, is there?
W: I'm afraid not, madam. But the coffee's not that good anyway.Reuse content
