Conversation overheard

One little boy (about six or seven years old), who has obviously been in the hotel for at least one previous breakfast, instructing another (about five or six) in the use of a conveyor belt toaster:

You need two knives and two plates, and your bread.
Put the bread on the chain thing at the top.
Then you wait for ages while it winds the bread through.
But then it's not cooked so you put it back on top.
Then you wait forever again for it to come out.
But then it's burned.
So use one knife to scrape it off onto one of the plates.
That makes a mess, so you move the toast onto the other plate.
Leave the messy plate and knife behind, when nobody's looking.
