How would you like your eggs?

I’m always confused by this question in a restaurant. This is for a breakfast order, of course, so the eggs in question will be fried or scrambled. But if they’re to be fried, the waitress needs to know how you’d like them. This is where years of American television gets me confused.

Does the waitress want an answer like hard, medium or soft? Or does she want to know if I want them sunny side up or over easy? You see, these are two separate systems and I’m convinced that she expects you to know one of the two systems.

But which one?
