We had a friend who insisted on rock-hard butter. You can't please everyone.

Put a butter pat in your mouth to soften it.  Then take a bite of bread and apply the softened butter to it using your tongue.

Do not blame the restaurants for that one. That's solidly on the local health departments!

A place nearby me always serves their Iced Tea with about 6 small cubes of ice, the waitress always comes back and says,"oh, that's right, you like your tea with lots of Ice"! Ah, yes, most folks do, I believe!

I prefer lots of tea ... vs. a half (or better) glass of ice.

Actually  ... I don't mind a lot of ice ... IF the tea is made extra strong to take the melting ice. 
 
.... OTHERWiSE, chill the tea and add 8 cubes of ice.

Yes! I forgot about that one, but it's become a real problem in Philadelphia. A lot of the better restaurants in town now only offer a steak for two people at a very high price (usually a big bone-in ribeye, a porterhouse or a very large bone-in NY strip). My wife and immediate family aren't really steak-eaters. So I'm out of luck when we go to one of those restaurants and I want steak.

Exactly!  That's why when I was chef at the Black Cow Tap & Grill I put that all the steaks on the menu could be ordered by the ounce (in increments of 2 ozs.).  They loved it.

The first time I went to a restaurant and there wasn't rice in the salt shaker I was baffled! At that time I didn't know it was because it's always humid here; I just thought you were supposed to put rice in salt because everyone I knew and every restaurant I'd visited did. Never questioned the reason. Likewise a saltine cracker or two in the sugar.

Taking all of the wrapper off of straws except for the very top piece.

You swear you didn't touch the rest of the straw?

I always found it easier to move to non humid areas. The Pacific Northwest thank you.

"Would you like blue cheese crumbles or bacon on the salad?"
 
Then you get charged for the extras that wasn't stated on the menu.
 
50¢ for an extra thimble size container of sauce.

Lisa, Salmon season is in full swing in Washington State. We hooked into two yesterday trolling for Walleye with 10# test line. One fight lasted 1/2 hour for one and the other 15 minutes. Needless to say the Salmon won. We will be ready for bear next time. Why don't you fly up to Alaska and have Michael drive. He should make it up there by his 100th Birthday.

Ten pound test for walleyes? I've never heard of anyone going heavier than six pound, and I never go above four. By the way, when you troll are you using downriggers or planing boards?
