As I was trying on clothes at Structure, an unusual occurrence was experienced by my friend Anish. The following is his description...A large man walks into the store and is greeted by a Structure employee. He responds by asking, "What's the biggest pair pf pants y'all got?" The Structure employee says that the largest size in pants is 44 x 44 (which by the way is ridiculously big!). The obese fellow then exclaims, "Only 44? Y'all don't got 48 or even 46?" The Structure employee tries to contain her laughter and says, "Nope, sorry sir." Then the elephant-like man forces a smile and asks her, "What size pants do you wear?" The Structure employee merely laughs and walks away, reaffirming her total and absolute disgust for the beast of a man.

As we all sit down for an early morning snack, Anish is the only one who is craving hotcakes and lots of them. When it comes time to order, Anish cleverly asks for an Original Grand Slam, which includes 2 hotcakes, 2 sausages, 2 pieces of bacon, and hashbrowns. After the waiter finishes taking everyone else's order, he requests the meat to be substituted for another hotcake. The waiter says, "Sure, no problem." Then just as the waiter turns around and is about to walk away, Anish calls him back and says, "actually...ha ha...can you substitute the hashbrowns for another hotcake?" This upsets the waiter because he has to edit the order once more; he gives Anish a very long answer as to why he should have just ordered 4 hotcakes instead of making it hard for the waiter with substitution. He says, "Why don't you just order all hotcakes? It doesn't make sense to order a Grand Slam and then substitute every single item for a hotcake." This draws attention to Anish, and also to our table. Embarassed and humiliated, Anish says, "Oh, ok," and says to substitute only the meat. I wouldn't be surprised if Anish ordered a burger and then said, "Can you substitute the meat, and also the vegetables and condiments for like 2 or 3 or 4 hotcakes?"
