How frugal can they be??

Motosport | May 27, 201508:42 AM     39

Our local Chinese take out joint makes great food. We get lunch to go for the office at least once a week and I'll get takeout for dinner whenever I'm working late.
They are stingy with the duck and soy sauce. Every time I pick up our order I ask for more soy and duck sauce. The peeps in the office love their sauce. The woman at the counter will toss in two. "More please!" Another two, "More please." It's like a Seinfeld episode!!
There are four of us in the office so she gives us 4 plastic forks.
I use chopsticks: "May I please have chopsticks?" "How many?" "One please." She puts in one pair of chopsticks and removes one fork from the bag.
I had to laugh!!!!
