A Trucker's Breakfast

A trucker went into a truck stop cafe and placed his order with the young new waitress.

"I'd like three flat tires, a pair of headlights and a pair of running boards," he said.

The waitress, not wanting to appear stupid, went to the kitchen and said to the cook, "This guy just ordered three flat tires, a pair of headlights and a pair of running boards. What does he think this place is - an auto parts store?"

"No," said the cook. "Three flat tires mean three pancakes, a pair of headlights are two eggs sunny side up, and a pair of running boards are two slices of crisp bacon."

The waitress thought about this for a moment, then spooned up a bowl of beans, went out to the dining room and placed the bowl in front of the trucker. "What are the beans for?" he asked.

"Well," she replied. "I thought while you were waiting for the flat tires, headlights and running boards, you might as well gas up!"
