At a Soba restaurant

A man went into a soba restaurant.
He was extremely hungry.

M:  Excuse me.
    I would like one pork noodle, and one chicken noodle,
        and one egg noodle, and one curry noodle and one tempura

        noodle.
W:    Ok, so let me confirm your orders.
        So...you would like one pork noodle, and one chicken noodle,
        one egg noodle, and one curry noodle and one tempura noodle.

He waited for a long time.
But his orders never came.
And he waved the waitress again.

M:    Excuse me.
        I've been waiting for my orders for a long time.
        What happened to my orders?
W:   Oh, I was just waiting for your friends.
        Are you going to eat them all by yourself?
