Build-A-Story: Waiter, you forgot the fly in my soup!

Are you amazed by waiters who take orders from a table full of picky eaters and don't write any of it down? Are you annoyed by them?

How often do those waiters get the order wrong?

For a look at this venerable (and disappearing) aspect of the server's art, we'd like your own memories of waiters who either dazzled or bedeviled you with a pen-free performance. Any current or former servers out there with tales and tricks to relate?

And while you're mulling this, check out this online game to test your own ability to recall diners and their orders.

Post them in the comments section below, or send them directly to me at
