How good must the food be if you’re willing to risk your entire family finding out about your affair? An elderly gentleman brought his far younger companion to have Valentine’s Day lunch at this particular restaurant. Seems innocent enough, right?
That evening, a family came for dinner and the waitress could not help but recognize the father’s face…it being the same man from earlier! A mortified expression washed over the man’s face once realizing he had the same waitress.
A boyfriend thought the most romantic way to propose to his girlfriend would be to conceal the engagement ring in a fortune cookie. He enlisted the help of the waiters to do this.
The waiter sat the cookies in front of them, and the boyfriend assumed the one closest to him was the engagement ring. He took it, got down on one knee, and cracked open the wrong cookie! Thinking it was a cruel joke, his girlfriend had to be consoled.
Acts of Kindness
Here’s something heartwarming to balance out the disasters! This waiter overheard a very young boyfriend phone his friend to see if he could bring him cash as he realized he could not afford the restaurant bill for him and his girlfriend.
The waiter mentioned this to the manager, who said he would take care of it. The young man settled the bill and left smiling with his date. The manager revealed to the waiter that he allowed the kid to pay whatever he could and paid the rest himself. Mensch!
The Mariachi Misery
A mystery man made a grand entrance into this New York restaurant with a Mariachi band following him. They strolled through the restaurant towards one particular waitress who was trying to hide. The mystery man cornered her, kneeled, and presented her with a ring.
Turns out to be her ex-boyfriend, thinking that the gesture would win her back. It did not. The man left, the mariachi band sat at the bar and drank and his ex-girlfriend went home with the bartender!
The Escape Artists
These two deserve each other. A customer requested the waiter to hide the engagement ring in what is known as a “hush puppy” – a ball of fried cornmeal. That should have been the warning sign right there.
The couple arrived with family in tow, and the woman luckily found the ring before biting into the hush puppy. The wait staff congratulated them and served them for a full two hours before the whole family dined and dashed.
