One Sunday morning, my family and I went to a popular restaurant for breakfast. As soon as we walked into Restaurant Happy Meal, a young waitress showed us to a table.

We ordered our food and soon after, our food came. Just as we were about to begin our meal, we heard someone shouting for the proprietor.

"What is this ? A dead fly in my food !" a man with a deep scar across his face roared angrily. He banged his fist on the table and swept the plates and cups off it. These came crashing to the floor, breaking into pieces. His companion, a huge man with a tattoo on his arm, stared angrily at the proprietor who stood nervously in front of the two gangsters.

The proprietor apologized repeatedly to the angry customers and tried to pacify them by offering to replace their food. He even told them that they could have their meal for free.

The commotion affected the business of the restaurant. Fearing that a brawl would ensue, many customers quickly paid for their meals and left the restaurant hurriedly. Some of them had not even finished their breakfast.

My father told us to eat our food quickly and not to look at the two angry men. We obeyed him and finished our food within minutes. That was probably the quietest and fastest breakfast my family ever had.

Although my father warned us not to look at the two unruly customers, I could not help stealing a glance at them.

I saw that the proprietor had managed to pacify the two angry customers. Fresh food and drinks were brought to their table. They sat down again and continued their breakfast. Meanwhile, the waitress who had shown us to our table earlier swept up the broken china.
