From A- to A+ with asterisk

“I’d say A-minus” – that was the feedback from a colleague on yesterday’s dinner at our trade fair hotel. We had tender boiled beef with apple-horseradish sauce and roasted potatoes. When the waiter asked what was missing for an A, the prompt reply was “a slice of beef”.

A good 20 minutes later, the waiter returned with another complete serving of beef. “I want the A!” was his explanation.

For so much effort and there was even an A plus with asterisk from our colleague!
