        I've had a Pork chop that needed a knife...but never one that WAS a knife !

        As for the burger. If you buy one that you have to microwave yourself, you deserve whatever the law will do to you for the reaction.

            I agree with one of the statements indicated on Yahoo. I have experienced a situation about 3:00AM where a patron became extremely agitated because he received something that was not what was ordered. I believe he was intoxicated. He was screaming and yelling and threatening. The police was called and they hauled him off. I spoke to the officer and he indicated that after hours diners were often intoxicated and became irritated over minor events. He also told me that the next day, they were extremely sorry of their behavior.

            Personally, I let my tip do the talking.

              Jack,
              Don't growl... I am a relocated Californian...and I know enough to stay out of Texas !!

              Paul,
              Your experience reminds me of Senior Citizen discount day at our Local Krogers market. Shouting and arguments and deliberate attacks with grocery carts in the aisles is typical of that first Wed. of the Month at the market. These old folks (older than me !) fight to the death for that Sara Lee Pie on sale !! AND I won't go near the gas pumps on that day. It is Very dangerous for sure.

                On a different note, my friend and I got kicked out of a NYC Diner back in the late 1980's because as we were eating , a homeless person walked into the crowded diner, walked directly to our table and asked us for money. The manager/owner kicked the homeless guy out of the diner, but also kicked us out too in the middle of our meals because "the incident was bad for business" I was in my early 20's then and this was before I lived in "the customer is always right- regardless of circumstances" Seattle. If I knew then, what I know now, I'd be quite the wealthy man as a result of this "incident".

                    WJ,

                    Why on earth did you get kicked out of the diner as well??? "The incident was bad for business"...hmmmm, no, I'd say such a reaction by a manager alone is characteristic of bad business. Did you make the "mistake" of giving the homeless person money (mistake is in quotes because of all the times my "friends" and colleagues have berated me for helping out someone less fortunate)?

                    I guess I'm just truly perplexed that you had to leave as well. Then again, considering the pettiness I come across in this world at times, little surprises me anymore.
