      You should never feel embarrassed by what you like! The two most important people at any establishment: hospital, hotel, truck stop, wherever, are the cook and the janitor. Always make friends with them. If the cook calls you french fries, after 2-3 friendly interactions you can and Will get extra fries. When I was at a hospital one time, I would always order a burger with extra bacon fries and extra side of pickles. Dudes name was Ronny. After 3 days no up charge on extra bacon, he would close the lid and tell me to tell the cashier it was a plain burger. End of the week, he would see me on line and have it ready, walk it around the counter and tell me to go out the side door for free lunch. If you dont like being called french fries, just chuckle and say "the names,*insert your preferred name* but I dooooooo looooove french fries!" I guarentee you will start getting double fries for free.
