The Ordering Game. "The goal of the game was to order in one go, and so comprehensively that the server would not be forced to ask for even a single clarification. As such, every variable had to be examined, every corner of the menu explored, lest something—a complimentary glass of juice on a pre-set breakfast menu, for instance—go unnoticed."

My personal rule is that nobody at a table should order the same thing-- although in some settings I'll refine this so that only A and I are so limited. It depends on how receptive to my neurosis the other people we are with should be expected to be. I like the Ordering Game, though, and will be integrating (grating being the key word) it into my set of quirks. Something like the Ordering game is already a part of my set of rules for fast food-- it's McDonald's, for crissake. Why do you need to ponder the menu? Presumably the only reason we are here is because of a specific craving! In a fast food setting everyone can order the same thing-- because I am flexible.
