    From our eloquent staff at the halfway house:

    French Dick = French Dip
    Chicken Peninis = Chicken Panini
    Pubes = Curly Fries
    Buttholes = Onion Rings

    We don't all say it. A lot of people would think its weird. But in every high end place I've worked they say it. And when one of the best chefs in your state shouts out an order at you you have all of 0.1 seconds to shout oui or your ass is his.
    It's just the way it is. But in more relaxed restaurants everyone says yes.
    Here it's "HAI!" Everybody says it. And if you don't, you'll get the stinkeye.
    Pretty much like the Japanese version of Fuggedaboutit.

    I recommend watching Louis CK's rendition of diner slang.
