That's right - in a restaurant - in public - an adult man is hiding from his date.
|Maybe he should wear this shirt on all dates?|
I do have to wonder - if the date was this miserable, why stay?
Not just him - what about her?! Why sit there with someone who so obviously doesn't want your company? Why allow him to create a scene so ridiculous it was immortalized on twitter? In the photo, she's playing on her phone. Understandable, since she's being ignored - but then why stay? Why not just leave while he's (obviously) not looking?
I've hung in there on some bad dates. Whether it was out of etiquette, a sense of decency, or just old-fashioned guilt, I've stuck it out through dates that ranged from awkward and boring to just plain awful.
But if someone treated me like this? I'm pretty sure I'd take my breadsticks and go home.
I'd write him a note, though - on the back of the bill.
