Went to a steakhouse with my family tonight. I had asked for a baked potato with everything on the side.

Well, the first potato was actually my dad's and since he was sitting to my left, she left it where it was and put my potato on my right.
Since I'm left handed, the potato that I first thought was mine was in the perfect spot for me to eat it, and the new potato was in a spot that was very difficult for me to eat. I complained several times loudly that I couldn't reach my potato, but my dad, being both Asperger's and with an age-related hearing loss and never wearing his hearing aids in restaurants, completely ignored me when I said I couldn't reach - all while my sister rolled her eyes at my dad and said, "Yeah, that's how things go in this family."
Then DH said, "Talk about a first world problem - I can't reach my baked potato because it's on the wrong side of my prime rib!"
To my dad's credit, when I did catch his eye and explain my problem to him he did make space for me and I did get to eat my potato in the end!
