If you are a senior you will understand this one, if you deal with seniors, this should help you understand them a little better, and if you are not a senior yet........God willing, someday you will be...... The $2.99 Special They went to breakfast at a restaurant where the 'seniors' special' was two eggs, bacon, hash browns and toast for $2.99. 'Sounds good,' the wife said. 'But I don't want the eggs.' 'Then, I'll have to charge you $3.49 because you're ordering a la carte,' the waitress warned her. 'You mean I'd have to pay for not taking the eggs?' the wife asked incredulously. 'YES!' stated the waitress. 'I'll take the special then,' the wife said.. 'How do you want your eggs?' the waitress asked. 'Raw and in the shell,' the wife replied. She took the two eggs home and baked a cake.
