"Mother, I can cut my own meat."
"Of course you can Sweetie; Mummy just wants to make sure you don't choke by putting too big a piece in your mouth."
As the woman cuts into the steak she suddenly stops and looks aghast, then signals the server to the table,
"Young man this steak is undercooked, are you people trying to give my son tapeworms, look the center is pink and that means it is still raw. Now take this back tell the chief to stop being lazy and do his job."
"Mother I ordered a medium rare steak, I don't like my meat over cooked..."
"Don't get sassy with me young man, your mother is just looking out for you, I swear that steak was so raw I think I heard it moo. Besides I told you to order the chicken but would you listen to your mother, no you have to be the big boy and order beef."
"I'm a grown man I can order what I want."
"Your mother just wants what's best for you and if that's a crime then arrest me."

As mother and son bicker over his entre, the third party at the table gets up and leaves.
"Well mother you've ruined another date for me."
"It's OK dear you were too good for her anyway."
