Never asked for slices, or rashers, of bacon. Order bacon 'n eggs for breakfast and you get two slices. If you want more, ask for a side order of bacon. And specify how you want the toast since that varies all over the place. If the toast comes buttered (or just greased), you are in a greasy spoon (tip 10%). If it comes plain on a hot plate or wrapped, with butter and jams on the side, you are in a slightly higher class establishment (never tip less than 15%). The one thing you never get (thankfully) is cold toast in a rack (demand your money back).
