    will want

    Hi forum. Here's a joke for you.

    A man asked for a meal in a restaurant. The waiter brought the food and put it on the table. After a moment, the man called the waiter and said:
    "Waiter! Waiter! There's a fly in my soup!"
    "Please don't speak so loudly, sir," said the waiter, "or everyone will want one."

    Is it common to say "will want"? It doesn't sound good to me. What would you take as an alternative expression?

    Re: will want

    Hi, I'm not a teacher,

    I reckon it's grammatically right, you have a future tense form 'will + main verb'.

    Have a nice day.
