A hungry trucker came into a truck stop diner and placed his order.
He said, “I want three flat tires, a pair of headlights and a pair of running boards.”
Alicia, the brand new feisty waitress, not wanting to appear stupid, went to the kitchen and said to the two cooks, “This guy out there just ordered three flat tires, a pair of headlights and a pair of running boards. What does he think this place is, an auto parts store?”
“No,” said one of them. “Three flat tires mean three pancakes, a pair of headlights is two eggs sunny-side up, and running boards are two slices of crisp bacon.”
“Oh, OK!” said Alicia. She thought about it for a moment and then spooned up a bowl of beans and brought it to the customer.
The trucker asked, “What are the beans for, girl?”
She replied, “I thought while you were waiting for the flat tires, headlights and running boards, you might as well gas up!”
