I have been a frequent diner at Courgette for a number of years and we have always had this great waiter called Chris.

Last week we went there for dinner and were told that he doesn’t work there anymore. Does anyone know where he is?

He has changed his name to Wally

Funny I was thinking exactly the same thing..

Perhaps check your mailbox to see if there’s a restraining order waiting for you?

I heard he got signed up for the lucrative English Premier Waitstaff League with Pickles and Onions United. They’re up in Europe this year, first round a tough away fixture with Spatula Moscow from Russia.

Hopefully he’ll be fit for the World Cup…

Last time you ate, the restuarant was short of food, so they butchered Chris and served him.

So, where’s Chris? HE’S IN YOU!

I had written Chris a letter, which I had for want of better
Knowledge, sent to where I met him in the city years before
He was a waiter when I knew him, so I sent the letter to him
Just ‘on spec’ addressed ‘Chris the waiter, address unsure’

And the answers, as expected, lots of mirth directed
At my motives (and I think some have gone too far)
But ’twas a waiter mate who wrote, and verbatim I will quote
Chris has gone to Tuggers, but we don’t know where he are

(apologies top Patterson. Some meetings are REALLY boring)

I dunno kambahkrawler – I think Pommy bastard wins the prize for most creative effort. Seriously, who cares where a waiter ends up, as long as the restaurant food stays decent.

Perhaps the other staff at Courgette know? Just an outside hunch.

i think there was a new guy called chris at kfc this week – coincidence?

I heard he got a job door-knocking for the ABS. And then something about liver, fava beans and Chianti. I missed the details.

I don’t think anyone knows, do they really?

Chris, unfortunately was diagnosed with “sensitive person’s multiple chemical allergy sensitivity syndrome” by his Feng Shui consultant, he’s now sitting in a bath of warm Yak’s milk on top of Mt Painter, whilst receiving homeopathic reki by distance learning from a holistic Hopi Ear-candler.

He’s moved to Tuggeranong so he can charge people $12 for a poached egg.

Entirely justified IMHO if he can do a nice poached egg without using vinegar to ruin the taste of the white. Only lazy-arse amateurs and/or Queenslanders do this. Wrong wrong wrong. It turned me off eating poached eggs in public. FFS, it’s not difficult to poach an egg quickly and neatly without vinegar!

Maybe he decided there is more to life than being a waiter, so he joined the Foreign Legion and is now living in a mud fort somewhere in Chad?

did you actually ask at courgette where he’d skived off to? maybe – left field, i know – he thought there might be more to life than being a waiter…

Somebodys got a crush??

Little bizarre that they didn’t tell you his whereabouts? For a guy that worked with them for years? However I am putting my bets on his move to Tuggeranong

Chris led a double life. His other pseudonym was Mully.

Chris looked into his crystal ball, saw christmas coming, thought “Whoops I’m not a christian” though in full name he probably was Christian, and with a chrysalis in hand went to christen some chrism, which made him feel like executing a tight christy.

He turned into the Chicken man… I think he’s with the circus now
