    Smile Are you being waited on?

    Excuse me. Are you being waited on?
    < >

    A. No, I've already ordered a cup of coffee and a piece of rum cake.
    B. No I'd like to have a spaghetti with meat sauce, please.

    what is the answer?

    and what's the meaning of 'are you being waited on?'

    Thank you.

    Re: Are you being waited on?

    In this case, "are you being waited on?" is a question being asked by a waiter or waitress in a restaurant. He is asking a customer if anyone has taken his food order yet. B is the correct answer.
