An enthusiastic customer set up a restaurant booth to propose to his girlfriend. The accommodating waiter went out of his way to make it memorable. The hopeful fiance handed the waiter his phone and asked him to film the proposal. However, the screen locked as he was about to pop the question.
The quick-thinking waiter used his own phone and promised to send the video. After they left, the waiter realized no tip was left. Needless to say, the fiance didn’t get his video!
Husband's Stakes Were Too Low
A waitress at a waffle house recalled when a cute, elderly couple walked in the door. It soon became evident though that the wife was seething with resentment.
Immediately upon being seated, the wife loudly exclaimed (with some very colorful language) for all to hear that she was in disbelief that her husband would bring her to eat steak at a waffle restaurant to celebrate Valentine's Day. We side with her on this one. Raise your stakes, buddy!
Is that Burger King or Burger…Ring? A burger joint might not be the most romantic place to propose, but each to their own. A highly insistent customer demanded that staff place the engagement ring he bought for his girlfriend inside the burger itself.
The staff advised against it, but he insisted, and they complied. As expected, things went very wrong. The ill-fated girlfriend swallowed the ring, and paramedics were called. The foolish boyfriend then threatened to sue the restaurant for negligence!
A bachelor booked a table at a high-end steak restaurant for Valentine's Day even though he was single, confident by Valentine's Day he could take someone out.
It turns out that he found a girl last minute and it was their first date. He requested his date to keep her eyes closed until being seated so he could surprise her with the upmarket restaurant. Upon opening her eyes and realizing she was in a steakhouse, she yelled that she was a vegan and made a very sudden departure!
He Wishes It Was a Racehorse
This V-Day disaster happened not to a waiter but to a carriage driver. A man paid for an hour's carriage ride to propose to his partner. Half an hour into the ride, the man reveals the ring and asks her the sacred question… to which she replied, "Absolutely not"!
The next half an hour back to the barn, the driver discreetly tried messaging his coworkers to remove all of the celebratory decorations that were waiting for the couple!
