Breakfast is supposed to be the main meal of the day; but most reserve that honour for supper.

Supper is a meal that I've got to wait for the SO to give me instructions of what he feels like eating

Eating is a different experience, sitting on a stoep in a camp overlooking the bush, listening to the night sounds and with a crackling fire going, than when you are in a fancy restuarant surrounded by waiters and waitresses.

Waitresses and waiters these days seem to prefer to be gender-neutral by calling themselves waitrons.

Waitrons is just another one of the words to provide political correctness in a society that has gone absolutely crazy.

Normal behaviour has changed significantly over the past two decades and in western society hase become more strictured and obsessed with safety, to the point where one has to consider how one survived growing up before this era.
