Next to godliness

John and Jake went into a diner that looked as though it had seen better days.

As they slid in to a booth, John wiped some crumbs from the seat. Then he took a napkin and wiped some mustard from the table. Presently, the waitress, in a dirty uniform, came over. "Do you want some menus?" she asked.

"No thanks," said John, "I'll just have a cup of black coffee."

"I'll have black coffee, too," Jake said. "And please make sure the cup is clean."

The waitress shot him a nasty look and snapped, "Are you implying the cleanliness of my diner is not what it should be?"

"Well, I..." Jake stammered.

The waitress huffed and marched off into the kitchen.

Two minutes later, she was back. "Two cups of black coffee," she announced. "Which one of you wanted the clean cup?"

That would be a good spot in a movie...especially if they're being chased by a killer and having a crappy day, already! (something to break up the tension a little! lol!) :-)
