Where's Gordon Ramsay when you need him?

Basil Fawlty seemed to have arrived at my local Farmers City Market this morning with the mini-Ws. Service in the café was ridiculously slow and the waitress managed to lose our order. My favourite bit, however, was when I asked for the poached eggs featured on the menu. After consultation with the kitchen, I was told that they didn't have any poached eggs. Just fried and scrambled.

I seem to remember a similar conversation at another eaterie in the past. Someone needs to take the staff to one side and explain that an egg is actually just an egg. You can then choose to do varous things with the egg. And if you don't have the facilites or necessary technical expertise to poach one, then don't put it on the bl**din' menu.
