THE BILL FOR THEIR DINNER DIDN’T SEEM CORRECT. THEY ASKED THE WAITER TO – – –
ELE HA PKE CCS = CHECK PLEASE
Happy Monday Jumble friends! It looks like Stephen made an honest mistake. Luckily the two ladies where splitting the check and happened to notice the extra charge right away. I’m sure many of you have some horror stories when it comes to restaurants running up their bills. I rarely take a peek and often pay the requested amount sight unseen. This all changes when the waiter or waitress treats our order like a memory game. It’s a risky maneuver to attempt when the majority of your earnings are based on tips!
We start the week with four original anagrams, but all of their solutions have been used over the past few years. CACTUS was the only on that I didn’t see straight away so it’ll be my pick for today’s hardest scramble. David must have had C’s on the brain because there was at least one in every Jumble!
The restaurant where these two women just finished dining looks to be pretty swanky. The Greek place that Jeff drew on 2/19 had faux marble columns painted on their walls, but this establishment has the real deal! Poor Stephen looks to have goofed up their bill and tacked on an additional dessert by mistake. They don’t seem to mind much though which is probably typical of the clientele who frequent high-end eateries.
The final solve was an anagram consisting 11-letters. It was a modest length to begin our week of solves, but the layout and cartoon made CHECK a bit too easy to see. PLEASE didn’t give me any troubles either and the whole thing was over just as quickly as it started. A fun start to the week! Have a terrific Monday, and I’ll see you right back here tomorrow!
