Cup Stacking Quotes

When you are invited to drink, and this does occur now and then in New Orleans—and you say, What, again?—no, Ive had enough; the other party says, But just this one time more—this is for lagniappe. When the beau perceives that he is stacking his compliments a trifle too high, and sees by the young ladys countenance that the edifice would have been better with the top compliment left off, he puts his I beg pardon—no harm intended, into the briefer form of Oh, thats for lagniappe. If the waiter in the restaurant stumbles and spills a gill of coffee down the back of your neck, he says For lagniappe, sah, and gets you another cup without extra charge.

When you are invited to drink, and this does occur now and then in New Orleans-and you say, 'What, again?-no, I've had enough;' the other party says, 'But just this one time more-this is for lagniappe.' When the beau perceives that he is stacking his compliments a trifle too high, and sees by the young lady's countenance that the edifice would have been better with the top compliment left off, he puts his 'I beg pardon-no harm intended,' into the briefer form of 'Oh, that's for lagniappe.' If the waiter in the restaurant stumbles and spills a gill of coffee down the back of your neck, he says 'For lagniappe, sah,' and gets you another cup without extra charge.
