A waiter overheard a female diner enthusiastically announce her pregnancy to her boyfriend who sadly did not share her delight. After getting over the shock, he reminded his girlfriend that he was explicit about not wanting children.
She was under the illusion that upon finding out she was pregnant, her boyfriend would be overwhelmed with paternal feelings and abandon all his child-free ambitions. Boy was she wrong. Guess it wasn’t a good idea after all.
What Did He Say?
This particular restaurant only permitted (costly) three-course meals to be ordered on Valentine’s Day. A couple sat in stony silence with their food untouched and their plates pushed to the edge of the table.
What DID her boyfriend say to her? No one should ever comment on other people's weight or eating habits. Especially not boyfriends. And on Valentine's day of all days? What has this girl done to deserve this?
Who is so oblivious to breaking up with someone on Valentine's Day of all days? This hapless boyfriend decided Valentine's Day would be the most suitable day, and an upscale restaurant would be a reasonable breakup venue.
The couple seemed radiant, snapping selfies and sharing their food until the boyfriend, now tipsy, began getting a bit loud. Eventually, the woman left in a fit. When the waiter went over to deliver the check, the boyfriend handed him a business card and advised him not to waste money at an expensive restaurant when dumping a girlfriend.
Not the Backseat They Were Expecting
A police car's backseat is undoubtedly not the kind of backseat most Valentine's Days dates end up on! A couple spiraled into an argument so heated that the staff asked them to tone down or leave during dinner.
The resentful man simply walked out of the restaurant, leaving his penniless partner to pay. She begged the manager to wait for her partner to return. Which… he never did. The manager called for the police, who walked the jilted lover out.
The Heedless Husband
This anecdote might be our favorite yet. A customer called this restaurant to make a Valentine’s Day reservation. The waiter, somewhat confused, informed the man that the date was the fifteenth of February and that he had already missed Valentine’s Day.
Without missing a beat, the man sheepishly responded with, “Yes, I know that, but my wife has made it clear that I better not forget next year’s!” Let’s hope his long-term memory is better than his short-term!
