Waiting Is the Hardest Part

While performing ceremonial guard duty at a dinner, I over heard an amusing conversation.

The Chancellor gave the dinner to honor several of the high command for their efforts in the war with the Separatist. As usual Senator Ask Ask was in attendance.

Senator Ask Ask
EATING THE FREE FOOD.

As the food was served, Senator Ask Aak used up all the butter on the butter plate. He quickly waved down one of the waiters.

“Son, get me some more butter.” Ask Aak stated boorishly

“I am sorry Sir; it is the dinning custom to only serve one butter plate every 4 feet at the Chancellors table.” The waiter replied

Senator Ask Aak became a little irate, “You will bring me some more butter, you overpaid busboy!”

“I am sorry sir, I cannot do that.” Smiled the waiter

waiter
TOO BUSY FOR BUTTER

“Do you know who I am?” Ask Aak questioned.

“You sir, you are Senator Ask Aak, primary spokesperson for the Palpatine Chancellery. Do you know who I am, sir?” The waiter said.

“No.” Ask Aak stated with exasperation.

“I’m the guy in charge of the butter.” The waited told him as he turned in left.

WHat's the big deal? It's only butter.

I am guessing Jon has never had to deal with the Imperial bureaucracy and the petty fiefdoms that exist there. This guy may not have had much power, but he did have the power of the butter dish.

Never underestimate the power of the waiter (or your cake lady ;-).


For they can do bad bad things.

Oh man... always always respect the people who serve you your food.

And Tak is right, the petty fiefdoms in this Empire are many and varied, even the mouse bots seem to engage in territorial warfare. (It would be funny if it didn't leave such a mess!)

You guys got a point there. That's why I like eating at Subway, they can't spit on your food there without you seeing it.
