I feel a drift

The comedian Jackie Mason used to tell a story about a New York couple arriving at a fancy restaurant. The maitre d' showed them to their table, but the woman objected. "Too close to the kitchen." So he moves them, but she's doesn't like the replacement table. Or any of the subsequent ones. Too sunny, too dark, too loud, too hot. Finally, the host shows them to the last table in the restaurant, and she finally seems satisfied.
