ANSWER:

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!

  1. Good Morning, Everyone! Have a great day! 🍰🙋🏻‍♀️

    🎶 Aww, that’s what they told me. (CHECK YOURSELF, check yourself)…I paid no mind. (Check yourself, check yourself)…I kept on breaking hearts, (Check yourself, check yourself)
    All down the line. (Check yourself, CHECK YOURSELF..🎶 “Check Yourself” – Gene Chandler 1961 https://tinyurl.com/w8jhqea

    🍰 Poor Stephen made a small mistake…he figured since there’s two,
    That they each ordered a dessert…no HAVOC should ensue…
    But our girl on the left it seems…her with her furrowed brow,
    Looks like she’d rather ELECT to make Steve feel bad some how…
    Bristly just like a CACTUS plant, her face looks all aPUCKER,
    She really needs to rein it in…That pointing finger? Tuck ‘er…
    Good thing our girl who sits at right says, “It’s no problem, Steve”
    And hopefully he won’t feel bad as he gets set to leave
    I’ll never understand how rude some people can be…Jeez..
    I think Ms Thing’s the one who should be hearing…”Uh, CHECK, PLEASE..” 🍰

  2. 🌵Sitting in the restaurant, she couldn’t help but notice all the dead CACTUS plants around, and wondered if she’d cause HAVOC if she chose to ELECT telling the owner…but when she did, and his face twisted into an offended PUCKER…she quietly said…”CHECK, PLEASE”…🌵

    👫🏻 They planned it out and did ELECT to get a night alone,
    And as he went to PUCKER up…just then he heard his phone…
    The kids were causing HAVOC, they knocked the CACTUS down,
    And Babysitter Betty said “I’m done”…with a stern frown…
    They really hated leaving, they just started on their cheese…
    But go they must…and so he told the waiter…”Our CHECK PLEASE”….👫🏻

  3. Good morning. Another easy jumble again today. No problem with either the words or cartoon answer. Have you ever heard someone say “are you as dumb as you look”. Well I’m my case I’d say no!! Because I’m on a roll lately. Angela, another first on hearing your song choice. It’s amazing how many songs I just tuned out or maybe it was short lived in the record world. Until tomorrow stay well.

    • Hey Brooklyn…Good Morning. Dumb is way too harsh a word…(Although it does suit some people)…I go with Information Challenged! 😉 And as far as the music goes…I only know so much of it because of my Father. ♥️💔. Gave me His love of music…and words…And I’m forever grateful….Have a great day, Paul. Be safe…🍰🙋🏻‍♀️

  4. Elect looked like cleat at first, and I wasn’t sure about the spelling of havoc, trying to spell it with an h on the end. Other than that, and the presence of the c’s from cactus, made the final “check please ” a quick and easy Monday solve.

  5. Hi all – “Elect” took an extra look before I thought to try the E at the beginning, and I had to stare for a minute before PUCKER appeared. CHECK was obviously part of the answer, and I thought “again” until the remaining letters showed PLEASE.

    What’s in the container between the drinks, packets of sugar?

    Have a great day everyone; stay safe.

    “He’d rather PUCKER up to a CACTUS than ELECT someone guaranteed to cause HAVOC”.

    We were just recently talking about Bay Area radio comedian and jazz musician Mal Sharpe, who was known for interviewing people on the street and getting them to agree to say or do absurd and hilarious things; sorry to see he passed away. The article called him the father of shows like ‘Punk’d’ and Jimmy Kimmel’s trick questions and stunts.

    • Hi Steve. Yes, packets of sugar…because the woman at left is drinking coffee. If you look closely, you can see the squiggly lines denoting the heat emanating from the cup…🙋🏻‍♀️

  7. Hi Mike…Maybe you know why it didn’t transpose well? I sent the link to Steve earlier in an email and it worked fine…Any idea how to get it to work here? 🤷🏻‍♀️ It works when I send it to myself also…and I logged OUT of Facebook. I don’t get that “tracking…cookies” message…🤷🏻‍♀️

      • Oh, ok then, good. Maybe it’s because I have so many blocks set up on everything…I’m using 13.3.1 also…I was hoping it posted with just the link, and not the entire graphic, but even with tiny.URL it came out like this. Oh well…I tried! 😉 As long as people can view it without having to give up their first born-male child! Tks! 😉🙋🏻‍♀️
