I always feel compelled to educate whatever 21 year old recent arrival is serving me that that large body of water to the east of us is, in fact, the Atlantic, and not the Pacific.... I did not greet you with an 'aloha.'

I understand it's to keep the cruise-boat set from yelling in horror 'You're serving flipper!!?!?! How could you!?!?!?' ....but it still annoys the hell out of me.
I don't get what u are bitching about...semantics? Florida natives? How to cook? Waitress staff? Hawaii ?
