Breakfast ruined

A businessman was nearing the end of his week long stay at a hotel in Stroud. On his final morning, he sat down in the breakfast room called over the head waiter.

"I want two boiled eggs, one of them so undercooked it's runny, and the other so over cooked, it's tough and hard to eat. Also, grilled bacon that has been left on the plate to get cold; burnt toast that crumbles away as soon as you touch it with a knife; butter straight from the deep freeze, so that it's impossible to spread; and a pot of very weak coffee, lukewarm." he said.

"That's a complicated order, sir," said the bewildered waiter.

"It might be quite difficult."

The guest replied, "Oh, but that's what you gave me yesterday!"
