Diving Into Shallow Waters, Part 2

| Romantic | September 27, 2012

(We are the couple from this story. My roommate and his girlfriend and I are going out on a double date again. Even though the waiter last time was really rude, we went to the same restaurant because the food was great. We ended up with the same waiter again.)

Waiter: *recognizing her* “Hello, again. What can I get started for you?”

Roommate: *to us* “Do we want beers or wine?”

Me/My Date/Girlfriend: *in unison* “Beer.”

(We ordered the beers, and the waiter leaves. The manager then approaches.)

Manager: “Hello again! So wonderful to see you back here. I’m glad that you didn’t let our staff members behavior last time keep you away. Did you want to be moved? I notice you’re in his section again.”

Girlfriend: *trying to be polite* “I think we’ll be fine, as long as he keeps his bull to himself.”

Manager: *beaming* “Of course. If you need anything, just let me know!”

(The meal goes fine, and everything is great. At the end, the waiter approaches the table and had this to say.)

Waiter: “Look, I… know I was more than a little rude last time you were here, and I wanted to apologize for what I said. No matter what I think about a couple, I shouldn’t make assumptions like that. And even if I did, I had no business actually saying anything about it, so… I’m sorry.”

(We go back once a month now, and actually request to be seated with this waiter.)
