Overheard at the Reform Club dining room the other day, as a lady diner was ordering her pudding: Diner: Please can you bring coffee with my pudding.

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.
