Another Bad Date
Another Bad Date
I get home from work tonight, and check my AdultFriendFinder email. There’s an email there from a woman named C. She and I chat for a bit. We decide to meet for a late dinner tonight.
I arrive first. I let the hostess know I’ll be needing a table for two and go to wait at the bar. Halfway through my crown-on-the rocks C arrives. I almost didn’t recognize her. The photo she gave me must have been 10 years and 50 pounds ago.
Now considering I’m overweight as well, I won’t begrudge someone a couple of extra pounds, but this was pushing the envelope. But I decided to make a go of it anyway.
So we sit and chat while waiting for the waiter to take my order. Apparently her ex called her before she left the house and managed to piss her off. He was all she talked about.
I heard about how he was an abusive asshole, a cheapskate, inattentive to her and would never listen to what she had to say. I could almost empathize with him on that last point.
She pointed out that the best place he would take her to for dinner was Subway or maybe Denny’s on a special occasion. How he would try to point her to the cheap stuff on the menu while he ordered the steak and shrimp. To this I replied “order whatever you like, we’re here to enjoy ourselves…. Waiter, I’ll take another crown, and make this one a double”
As the evening progresses I try unsuccessfully to get her off the subject of her ex. I’m stymied at every turn. When I try to talk about TV shows she might like, all I hear about are the ones he didn’t like. When I try to tell her about my son playing football, she tells me about how he would watch football and tune out the world. When I tried to bring it to politics, she told me how he made her vote for Bush.
I swear it was like the guy was at the table with us. I wish I could have stuck him with the tab!
After finishing the meal, the waiter comes around and asks if we want desert. I amuse myself by answering “I've had about all I can stand”. She never picks up on it.
I cite having to be up early for work tomorrow (a convenient half-truth, although I don’t have to be there until 10 AM, plenty of time to party all night and sleep in) and wish her farewell.
Anyway I’m heading to bed, I really do have to work tomorrow.
