The problem was the (single) omelette.

It should have been 2 eggs, bacon, toast, etc.

You then get to deliver piece meal: the customer stays "hungry" (enthusiastic) because they're getting a steady stream of "ready" deliverables that can be consumes and / or assembled if so desired (egg sandwich?). Someone else may repurpose it later into an omelette.

You cut back or delay certain deliverables without delaying or sacrificing the most desirable parts of the meal.
The Master said, 'Am I indeed possessed of knowledge? I am not knowing. But if a mean person, who appears quite empty-like, ask anything of me, I set it forth from one end to the other, and exhaust it.'
