Tea and Sympathy
Tea and Sympathy seems to have some trouble keeping items in stock.
The last time we ventured to this English culinary palace (when Vodka blew an entire paycheck purchasing royal wedding paraphernalia), they were out of our desired Victoria Sandwich Cake, which had been chosen by Robert Irvine on the THAT I'M THANKFUL FOR episode of Best Thing I Ever Ate.
This time, they run out of scones.
We're certain the Queen would not approve.

|We're More Dollar Menu Type of People|
"We EACH have to order $10 worth of food," Ginger counters. Clearly, Vodka's math skills have not improved since high school.
Just as we uneagerly decide that we will order scones (which we can then ask for "to go") to reach our minimal cost, as if we're in a mid-1990s sitcom, a waitress walks to the front door and posts a sign that states, "WE HAVE NO MORE SCONES."
Like the Queen's retreat from the Buckingham Palace balcony on royal wedding day, we hightail it out of there, mocking all the way. After all, what kind of British establishment runs out of scones (scones!) at 5pm on a Friday afternoon?!

|A Vision in Sponge|
Ginger nods in satisfaction before diving back into the clotted cream; Vodka grimaces and purses her lips.
"What?" Ginger inquires, shoveling another fork full into her mouth.
"It tastes like a sponge," Vodka insists. "A sponge with no taste."
Ignoring this assessment, Ginger states, "I love a clotted cream" and plunges back in. Having studied abroad in England during our college years, Vodka decides that Ginger must be more accustomed to the English flavors (or lack thereof), hence the difference of opinion.
