“I’ll have the chef’s salad.”/“That’s so rude. Just order your own!”

A “chef’s salad” is a salad construction by a chef. It is not a salad that a chef eats, but there are jokes.
     
“Winds us up that every restaurant serves ‘Chef’s Salad’. That’s the Chef’s salad. We want our own. Don’t want theirs. How does the Chef feel about this salad redistribution?” was posted on Twitter by Firebox.com on May 10, 2018.
   
This joke on Twitter by handsome handsock went viral (over 135,000 likes):
     
girlfriend: I’ll have the chef’s salad
me: [whispering] babe that’s so rude, just order your own

     
Similar jokes include “I ate a kid’s meal at McDonald’s for lunch. His mom was furious,” “I had a ploughman’s lunch the other day. He wasn’t very happy” and “I had a shepherd’s pie for lunch. He was furious,”
         
   
Wikipedia: Chef salad
Chef salad (or chef’s salad) is an American salad consisting of hard-boiled eggs; one or more varieties of meat, such as ham, turkey, chicken, or roast beef; tomatoes; cucumbers; and cheese; all placed upon a bed of tossed lettuce or other leaf vegetables. Several early recipes also include anchovies. A variety of dressings may be used with this salad.
