A man walks into a restaurant, sits down, and orders a big dish of brown rice and stir-fry veggies.
He grabs a handful of peanuts from the bowl on in front of him and as he starts to chew he hears a voice say, “That’s a beautiful tie. Is that silk? NICE choice!”
Wondering who would make such an unusual comment, he looks around and doesn’t see anyone near him. With a shrug, he pops a few more peanuts into his mouth.
Then he hears, “Those shoes are styling. Are they Italian leather? They look GRRREAT!”
He turns around again but sees no one near him. Glancing nervously at his shoes, he self-consciously tucks them under the stool.
Feeling weird, he grabs another handful of peanuts. This time he hears, “That suit looks FANTASTIC! Is it an Armani? Very nice!”
He calls the waiter over and tells him, “Look. I keep hearing these voices telling me how great my tie, my shoes, and my suit look. Am I going CRAZY?”
“Oh,” the waiter replies nonchalantly, “those are just the peanuts.”
“The PEANUTS?” the man asks, staring at the bowl beside him.
“Sure,” replies the waiter, “they’re complimentary!”
