“Waitress: Sorry about your wait. Diner: Well, I’ve been doing my best to lose it.”

A restaurant joke was posted on Twitter on July 13, 2010:

Waitress:"Sorry about your wait”
Me:"So is my dietician,”


Another version of the “wait"/"weight" pun was posted on Twitter on October 22, 2015:

“sorry about your wait”
“well I’ve been doing my best to lose it before swimsuit season”

The waitress just said “Sorry about your wait” and my grandpa was like “Why would she be sorry about my weight?” He’s awesome.
