Oh, yeah. I was reminded that I hadn't posted details about that date.

Uh. . .maybe I need to start another blog. Just for the comedic effect.

He ordered tacos at a Salvadoran restaurant, requested that they be brought without lettuce or tomatoes, made a face at the fried plantains, didn't touch the black beans, picked the cheese off of his tacos, and then left a dollar tip.

I came home and watched cute animal videos for a while.

...oh, dear.
I'm not the world's most tolerant eater but I am not *that* bad. Watching someone do that would have driven me insane.

You’re better off with the animal videos. I detest a lousy tipper, never mind such a lunkhead as he.

Last sentence was the best . ( g )

Did he also offer to faux-paint a mirror with you? (Inside reference to one of the snarky cards we sell at the shop...)

High maintenance AND a crappy tipper. How 'bout NO.

(WV is "wined".)

Thank goodness you learned his true nature. A man is only as good as he treats others. The tip is the deal breaker. The food craziness is only a distraction in comparison.

Wonder if he's related to the guy who took a lady to McDonald's for dinner, ordered a Happy Meal for them to share, and he kept the toy.

Soooo, he "requested that the tacos be brought without lettuce or tomatoes............ made a face at the fried plantains............ didn't touch the black beans............ picked the cheese off of his tacos............ and then left a dollar tip"??!!

Was this (groaningly-supercilious) guy............ born in T.E.X.A.S.??!!

And THAT'S his *NORMAL* behavior when he's alive-and-"WELL," i.e., and NOT alive-and-SICK, requiring............ *A.* ~ *N.U.R.S.E.*............ to take CARE OF him??!! (Do we all, in advance, genuinely PITY the "privileged" nurse who someday may actually HAVE TO take care of him?? Haha!!)

HAVING TO (take care of him) is entirely one thing, but, otherwise............ (i.e., as far as any "other interaction" with HIM goes)............ "If it's not Mrs. Paul's, throw it back!!"

I could forgive the picky eating, but the dollar tip? Not a chance. Hell, I am so meticulous about tipping properly that I've been known to grab money out of my own mother's wallet if she doesn't tip adequately. Not that I've done that on a date. Well, not the first date.

Good Lord and butter. Well, at least he showed his back half on the first date, so you din't have to look at it for long.

Leslie said...

Well ugh- as others have said, at least youfound out that he was a dud really fast.

some of the writers in my writing workshop read a prompt I did about an online matchup where on date 1 the guy, a retired pilot, appeared after having 3 double martinis & snapped by bra strap as we walked down the street. They said I seemed detached in the piece, that they wanted to see emotion, that I had invested blah blah. I mean, really? I had NOTHING invested. So there was no emotion when he acted like an ass. Just "hohum, another asshole guy". Your post reminded me of that. They do make great stories, though, don't they?

A dollar tip?!? On a first date?

I always leave at least a buck and half.

What a loser. Glad you didn't waste anymore time. How could anyone pick CHEESE off ANYTHING???
