“Waiter: May I take your plates? Diner: Sure, they were yours to begin with!”

When a waiter or a waitress asks “May I take your plate?” after a meal is finished, that doesn’t imply possession, but a joke was posted on Reddit—Dad Jokes on January 1, 2018:

“Whenever the waiter/waitress asks if they can take our plates. ‘Sure, they were yours to begin with!’”
