Last week, we took some friends to a new
restaurant, and
noticed
that
the waiter who took our order carried a spoon in
his
shirt
pocket.
It seemed a little strange. When the
busboy
brought our water and utensils, I observed that
he
also had
a spoon in his shirt pocket.
Then I looked around and saw that all
the
staff
had spoons in their pockets. When the waiter came
back
to
serve our soup I inquired, 'Why the
spoon?'
'Well, 'he explained, 'the
restaurant's owner hired a consulting firm to
revamp
all of our processes. After several months of
analysis, they
concluded that the spoon was the most frequently
dropped
utensil. It represents a drop frequency of
approximately 3
spoons per table per hour.
If our personnel are better prepared, we
can
reduce the number of trips back to the kitchen
and
save 15
man-hours per shift.'
As luck would have it, I dropped my
spoon and
he
replaced it with his spare. 'I'll get
another
spoon
next time I go to the kitchen instead of making
an extra
trip to get it right now.' I was impressed.
I also noticed that there was a string
hanging out
of the waiter's fly.
Looking around, I saw that all of the
waiters
had
the same string hanging from their flies. So,
before
he
walked off, I asked the waiter, 'Excuse me,
but
can you
tell me why you have that string right
there?'
'Oh, certainly!' Then he lowered
his
voice. 'Not everyone is so observant. That
consulting
firm I mentioned also learned that we can save
time in the restroom.
By tying this string to the tip of our
you-know-what, we can pull it out without
touching it and
eliminate the need to wash our hands, shortening
the time
spent in the restroom by 76.39%.
I asked quietly, 'After you get
it out, how do you put it back?''Well,' he whispered, 'I don't
know about the others, but I use the spoon.'

More stale false information. I have seen this for years and checked it out on Snopes on it many years ago. It is not true. Andersen Consulting has been out of business for several years. They were heavily involved with Enron which led to its demise.

Maybe it is supposed to be joke. Perhaps the idea that somebody would post this thinking it is funny, is what is funny.

Yes, Bruce, this is suppose to be a joke. Others may not have heard this one. I thought that this joke was a little funny and gross.

Which could explain the tag humor

I had heard it before but it gave me a chuckle anyway.
