I just heard a guy ask, “Can I order the ramen?”, to which the waitress replied, “Sure,” and I realized he was technically requesting the authority to make an almost military claim on the kitchen’s staff.

When did military “orders” overlap with or diverge from restaurant “orders”? Sounds so aristo.
