One selfish woman tried hijacking an elderly couple’s table reservation. The woman ignored the reserved sign, sat herself down, and even tried to get rid of the “Reserved” sign. When the waiter demanded she leaves, she tearfully pleaded with him to give her the table as her boyfriend was going to propose, but they never booked.
Realizing she couldn’t stay, the woman began swearing at the waiter. She did get a standing ovation from the other customers as she stormed out.
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.
They Don’t Need It
This hopeful fiancé arranged for the restaurant to use pricey chocolate and gold leaf to spell out the words “Will You Marry Me?” on the dessert tray to pop the question right at the end of the couple’s magical night.
Just when the cooks are putting the finishing touches on the dessert, the table’s waiter comes into the kitchen and informs them that she dumped the poor guy before the main course!
Don't Forget Your Dentures
An elderly gentleman planned to propose to his equally elderly beloved over dinner. His knee joints were not up for the challenge of kneeling, and he took a tumble. The ill-fated future fiancé could not rise, and the restaurant staff had to have the ambulance called.
When the ambulance had left, with the man's female companion in tow, the staff noticed that she had left her dentures behind on the table. The restaurant manager drove the poor woman's teeth to the hospital to return them to her!
Wedding Day Blues
Getting married on Valentine’s Day, now that’s a bold move. A newlywed couple arrived at the restaurant fresh from their wedding. So fresh, in fact, that the wife still had on her wedding dress.
The couple hauled their luggage into the restaurant and collapsed exhausted into their seats. The waiter warmly congratulated the couple, who didn’t even acknowledge her. Onion rings were the only item they ordered, and they sat in silence for an entire hour before leaving.
