Ah, a fry-up. A hangover cure on a plate. An all round great time.
Except it wasn't for one man, Frederick Payne, who had a pretty 'traumatising' experience when his friend bought him an £11 breakfast.
So, what happened?
Payne went out in Hampshire with a friend, who kindly offered to buy him some grub.
However, instead of the typical assortment of fried foods, what came to the table was slices of melon, pineapple, grapefruit and orange.
Nope. They didn't accidentally give Payne a fruit bowl instead of a fry up, the fruit was on the same plate as his beans, eggs and bacon.
Payne shared the breakfast plate to Twitter, joking: "My mate thought that buying me breakfast in this place would be a good idea #traumatised."
He then added: "£11 in Hampshire this was, luckily my now ex-mate paid for it."
As you can imagine, people quickly responded to the confusing breakfast.
One said: "I mean… if this was desert kudos for putting on some bacon.
"If this is an attempt at breakfast, run. Save yourself,' while another simply added: "Is that… fruit??"

Yes, yes it is.
Another said that the breakfast looked promising except for the weird addition: "I am of the belief that they could an excellent full English Bacon cooked well sausage and mush look great scrambled egg too So they can cook But they choose to f**k around and serve that up. Probably charged a ridiculous amount too. They should be struck off'.
When Payne replied to the comment saying his mate paid, another user added: "I hope you're no longer friends."

However, another user suggested that Payne should be happy to have a mate willing to pay for such a unique breakfast.
They wrote: "Many people don't have a small slice of orange to eat and you have a plate of goodness and you are so critical of your friend. I don't see anything wrong with that plate! You are lucky your kind friend paid for your breakfast. Don't be such an ingrate!"
While we aren't going to be taking our friends out for a fruit-fry-up any time soon, it's nice to have mates who will take you out to breakfast.
Even if it did ultimately leave this guy feeling traumatised.
