Some years ago we went to a restaurant for a family affair that was being run by the employees, and/or had an absent manager. I ordered a Cab with my steak off a short wine list. The waitress brought the bottle, and set it down to go find an opener. I put my hand around the bottle while she was gone and almost burnt it. When she came back I asked her to put the bottle in the fridge while my steak was cooking. She went away with it; and came back with it saying the cook said it should be served at room temperature. I pointed out that the bottle was above room temperature, and please put it into the freezer until the steak was done. She came back with the bottle and the steak almost immediately and repeated that the cook said the bottle should be served at room temperature. So, I asked for an ice bucket. She went away and came back and said that ice buckets were just for white wine. I exchanged my Cab for a Coke.

I pointed out to the valley girl type that "it's" was incorrect. "Its" was the possessive and "it's" was a contraction of the words "it is," I said.
She replied, "Well, it is our birthday!"
