"I'll have a grilled cheese sandwich."
She said, "Jonathan, I'm sorry, we don't serve grilled cheese sandwiches."
He replied, "You have a grill, don't you?"
"Yes," the waitress responded.
He said, "You have cheese, don't you?"
"Yes," she answered rather puzzled.
The youngster said firmly, "You have bread, don't you?"
She again replied, "Yes."
"Well, Then I'll have a grilled cheese sandwich," the four year old stated firmly!
The waitress thought for a moment and replied with a smile, "Jonathan, I'll go see if the chef will fix you a grilled cheese sandwich."
She came back in a little while and said, "Okay, Jonathan, the chef agreed to fix you a grilled cheese sandwich. I forgot to ask you, though, what you want to drink."
Without a pause Jonathan said, "I'll have a milkshake."
After going out of her way to get the youngster his grilled cheeze sandwich, she said in a firm voice, "Jonathan, your parents have probably already told you we don't serve milkshakes."
She was obviously ready for him this time and quickly continued, "Now, it is true we have milk. And it is true we have ice cream. But we don't have the syrup."
Almost before she finished her carefully crafted response the precocious 4-year old pipped in, "You have a car, don't you?"
