One night a bus driver went into an Indian restaurant in Glasgow, Scotland. He ordered a chicken curry, but when he tasted it, he complained to the waiter that it was too dry. The waiter took it back to the kitchen, and there, the waiter’s father suggested adding some tomato soup. The waiter did it! He took it back to the bus driver, and the bus driver loved it! The waiter and his father put it on the menu and the bus driver and his friends came back many times and ordered it.
