Thank you, but I’m not hungry right now

For those of you who were brought up in a polite family, or those for whom English is not their language of choice, we may have to explain why the soup of the day is not one many of us would be eager to order.

However, I wouldn’t say no to a ride in this little beauty.

  4. It all sounds nice, so if I was really hungry I would just have to ignore the dreadful spelling.

  5. I’d eat everything on that menu! Even if they can’t spell, I’m sure they can cook! 😉 🙂 And I’d love a ride in that car, too! 🙂
    ❤ and HUGS,

    At least ‘Dessert’ was spelled correctly, and a lot of people get it wrong. The writer will surely get his (or her) just deserts one day. ☺
    My Dad used to say: You can lead a horse to water, but a pencil won’t be lead.
    (Because a ‘lead’ pencil has a core of graphite mixed with clay.)
    Although the past tense of ‘read’ is ‘read’, the past tense of ‘lead’ is ‘led’, which is another one that a lot of people get wrong.
    Yes indeed, the English language has a lot to answer for.

  9. It has been known that when complaints are made about the food, some cooks took revenge by doing excactly that.

  12. I spent at least a minute reading it over and over and thanking goodness that at least the writer of this list was unlikely to be a product of the American education system. Hurrah for chocolate pudding, which was the only item wholly spelled right. Beautiful penmanship however! I might pass on the food, but the car ride, now that would be another matter. This new home of yours seems to be an antique car haven. Won’t be eating any snitzel though. Even auto-correct doesn’t know what to do with that. I was watching closely!

    • I’ll keep an eye on that sign, as I had noticed a few examples of eccentric spelling there in the past weeks.
      Oh, and ‘bangas’, which is Aussie slang for sausages, should be spelled ‘bangers’. But banga is how it is said, so …
      I do agree, I was quite envious of the neat printing.

      • Hmm. Good presentation, bad substance. I bet they can cook, though. In retirement, my father worked at a hardware store and garden center. He was always correcting their signs for them, not to mention newspaper ads…

        There’s the (all too common) punctuation error, too. But maybe English isn’t their first language? Sounds like a good deal, though!

        They are bangers in Britain as well – mmm, bangers & mash… The sausages I buy at the farmers’ market in Venice are surprisingly similar to British ones, I just have to import my own mushy peas to have with them as an occasional treat!

        • Do you think they meant to say Seniors ARE Special?

          The menu does represent good value, Caroline, and I’d say the food would be good. Otherwise, those Special Seniors wouldn’t come back. 🙂

          Hmm, mushy peas. What makes them so special?

          Maybe so!

          I’m not sure I could say why I like mushy peas so much – why do we like anything? Have you had them? For me they have to be tinned (or from a chippy) – I did once try making them but they just weren’t the same! At their best with fish & chips but also good with meaty comfort food like bangers & mash, faggots & mash, meat & potato pie & mash (ideally all with gravy & Henderson’s Relish :-)… . You will have to come round for a mushy peas based supper when you are next back!

  14. Unfortunately in this world of auto correct people don’t learn to do their own spelling.
    And Auto correct can get you into big trouble.

  15. That soup menu is hilarious! Although…I was once watching the famous French Chef, Julia Child cooking on TV and she said, at one point, as she stood by her stove: “…take a leek in the pan and….” You can imagine why I always remembered that.
