“Give a man a fish, and he’ll eat for a day… Unless he ordered steak, then you’re a shit waiter”

“Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day; teach a man to fish and he will eat for a lifetime” is a popular proverb.

“Give a man a fish,and he’ll eat for a day.. Unless he ordered steak, then you’re a shit waiter” was posted on Twitter by Martyn Tanton (and others) on May 6, 2014. The joke probably originated on the Sickipedia website.
