I had a beer in the bar of the Shangri-La hotel in Jakarta with a colleague and we wanted to order something small before dinner. So I asked for the snack menu, which they promptly gave me. I ordered some nachos but a minute later they told me that they did not have nachos. Can happen, so I wanted to order something else from the snack menu. I looked at it again but then the waiter informed me that nothing on the snack menu was available, because you could only order snacks later at night. Great, I thought (but did not say), why did you give me the menu then in the first place? Probably because I asked for the snack menu, which they indeed gave me – without any further thoughts about the reason why I asked for it.
But that was not all, because then I asked if they had another menu from which I could order. Yes they did, I could order from the normal dinner menu. And guess what was listed among the starters? The exact same nachos! So I ordered the nachos again, just from a different menu and the waiter said “no problem, misterrr, we have”. Interesting logic!
