...do not want you spewing it all over your computer screen...
50-something male guest who was at the coffee bar this morning was told it looked like his shirt was on inside out. Yup. He whipped it off over his head all over the coffee & juice, turned it right side out and put it on. Like he was in his own house and not in the middle of a room full of strangers.

My sympathy. It could not have been a pretty sight. Is he affiliated with one of those "you guys" restaurants you've been mentioning?

I went in to make breakfast this morning and found my blueberry grk yoghurts were gone, and in their place was KEY LIME extra thick and rich greek yog.
I was not happy, I made this monstrously weird parfait, with a variety of fruit and nuts and trying to disguise the key lime yogh. Using things I had not planned on using!
The guests liked it.
DH was lucky he was not around this morning, or I would have worn him out! He said on I.M. "Um, maybe I took them..."

And just to keep the fun going, our German guests, like the Spaniards last week, do not seem to understand that the exterior door does not close by itself. I had to put up a sign. Sigh. EVERY time they have come in or gone out the door has been left wide open with them nowhere in sight.

Had that happen to me once by an ignorant, hairy, 25 year old. He barged into the kitchen as he was whipping his shirt off, looking for scissors to cut a tag off his new shirt. I had all the fruit bowls ready on the counter as he was prancing his hairy self around! I literally pushed him out of the kitchen and told him to put his shirt back on!

I never thought this forum would resort to hairy men taking clothes off... well...maybe I did.

I might have told this story before on this forum so forgive if I repeat......
A lady down the road who used to B&B had a single man staying, who asked if she would mind if he didn't dress for breakfast, she thinking he meant he'd come down in a drssing gown or PJs said it was fine. When she came through to the dinning room he was sitting at the breakfast table nude. She threw him out!!

I don't think you have told that story before HJ! We had a member of the old forum, okay, bad term to use, an innmate...who had someone show up for coffee half dressed. Or half missing clothing...

The old restaurant sign: no shirt, no shoes, no service

Well, you obviously made him feel very comfortable and right at home

Our first weekend we had a young man come down to breakfast in nothing but his boxer shorts and tattoos. Part of a group of re-enactors here for a wedding. And he paid for his room in $5 bills.

Way to use what's on hand!
Question regarding parfaits - do you find the guest prefer a premade parfait over a buffet style with yogurt, fruit and granola all available?
I was actually wondering this morning if people would like parfaits and then I saw your post. (9 days until we take ownership!)
