Accepting the Situation
'Look Here, Waiter! I asked for sherry, and you've brought me brandy! Smell it!'
'Dear me, Sir, so it is! Very sorry, I'm sure – and yet it's very odd! I've helped five or six other gentlemen out of the very same bottle, and none of them has made any complaint!'
George Du Maurier (1834-1896)
