Wouldn't it have been easier to order the cobb salad without bacon?

She did. Asked for it to be removed - one would assume at the time of ordering, as, if it came to the table with bacon on it, she would have to request it re-made since there would be pork fat residue in the salad. Also banned.

I wonder how many kids are being carted around in the back of her party van?
Why?  Well, because I'm a bastard, that's why.

One child - a son - and a daughter on the way. Husband is Jordanian. It was a quick check to do.

I honestly don't know, old friend. If she were Jewish, would anyone be upset that she got upset at being given bacon? Or given meat on a Friday if she were a Catholic?

I reckon it was some a** of a server who didn't like the extra work involved in customizing a dish and who got some nicely petty revenge.

Oh, sorry for two unrelated sentences in the same paragraph.  The "What's all this then?" was an homage, a reference, a bon mots in thanks for your work.

"Nicole Queen charges that her waiter initially seemed irritated when she asked to have bacon removed from a Cobb salad she ordered."

You missed my point.  Why didn't she order, "a Cobb salad without bacon?"  Sounds like she wanted to make a scene by letting the cook put it on the salad so she could complain.

Or it never happened, or she planted the piece of bacon (if there was one).

That is what I think. Most likely, the waiter just got another salad. They don't remove parts of it, which I assume to be illegal, unless the waiter wore plastic gloves.

My first thought too.  Just because she said it happened doesn't mean it happened.   :nono:

This story really rings false. I've waited tables before, and there are a lot of people that do these kind of things but the staff is taught that the customer is always right and to "correct" any kind of misunderstanding. Here, we'd probably have given her a new salad and comped it - the LAST thing a server would do is to get all huffy and put bacon in a straw. This story is bogus.
