A local dive bar did not expect to be entertaining a Valentine’s Day wedding proposal. Nonetheless, a hopeful fiancé asked the staff to help arrange a surprise proposal for his girlfriend.
The manager stored the ring in the safe. However, the bar owner came across it and, thinking that it was a lost and found item, decided that it would be great for his girlfriend! After hunting it down, the manager retrieved the ring, and the proposal was a success.
For Heaven's Hake!
In celebration of their year together, a couple went to a particularly high-end seafood restaurant. The waiter, joining what is to be a joyous moment, offered his congratulations and well wishes. But then...
After delivering his sentiments and speaking at length about the specials, recommendations, and suggestions, he proceeded to ask if either of the pair had allergies. Turning her head slowly towards her boyfriend, the woman stated, "Yes. I'm allergic to fish and shellfish."
The Book Thief
Note: being a customer doesn't give you the right to exceptional, extraordinary treatment. This was not obvious to one diner at this particular restaurant who arrived on Valentine's Day without a reservation.
After being very persistent for almost an hour, he thought the best way to get a spot would be to sabotage the reservations by stealing the reservation book. Staff gave chase, but the nimble suitor outran them only to return later, insisting he'd booked a table!
A Terrible Surprise
A devoted boyfriend went the extra mile to propose. He convinced his girlfriend he would be out of town on Valentine’s Day but had arranged a surprise engagement with her friends and family.
Along with several family members and friends, the boyfriend hid in the apartment, waiting for his girlfriend to arrive home. She eventually did – in the arms of another man! Wow, this is so awkward and cringy we're surprised it wasn't already written into a Nextflix show.
Homewrecker Gets Wrecked
Valentine's Day is usually a gold mine for waiters to receive tips. This particular waiter did not expect the payday he was about to receive when a seemingly innocent dinner turned into a divorce.
The couple he was serving was chewing blissfully away when the man's wife showed up the next minute. After pouring a bottle of wine over her husband's head, she yanked off her wedding ring, gave it to the mistress, and said she could have him.
