Mortified woman walks out on date after his 'unacceptable' act during dinner
Can you really blame her?
A woman has shared the "unacceptable" story that led to her storming out of a recent date, leaving the man with the bill and in a very tense atmosphere.
Writing anonymously through Reddit, the 30-year-old dished on her dining experience with her partner. Essentially, sometime after ordering, her boo whipped out a bell to hurry the staff along.
She wrote: "This might sound bad but I don't know if I was the a**hole here.
"I have been dating my boyfriend Rhett for four months. We live in different towns and he's not from here, (he's an American living here) he usually visits on the weekends, this time I decided to visit his town and eat out at a diner.
"Rhett was already there when I arrived to the diner, we talked some, checked the menu, then when it was time to order he pulled a small bell out of his jacket pocket, lifted it up then started shaking it."
The woman claimed the bell created a "loud, annoying sound", and when prompted on why he was doing it, her partner said he "was trying to get one of the waiter staff's attention."
She explained that she asked him to stop but he just "kept shaking it" until she began to get looks from other customers.
"I demanded him to stop but he said not till someone came and took our order. I threatened to leave the place and cancel dinner if he wouldn't and he kept doing it," she wrote.
After someone eventually responded to the bell and took the couple's order, the disgruntled girlfriend stormed out, followed shortly by an equally angry Rhett.
"I told him that I couldn't take being embarrassed by him and he got upset and said that he didn't get why I thought the bell was embarrassing, explained that it was a perfect solution for no longer being forced to wait till someone shows up," the woman wrote.
"I said it's inappropriate and embarrassing here. He said I was being too sensitive and overreacted over nothing. He insisted we go back inside but I refused."
The couple then left with the man complaining that his date had in fact "ruined dinner by cancelling it and offending him by acting like his behaviour is shameful".
The man apparently went on to say his idea was "genius".
He then sulked for days and sought an apology.
A staggering 3,000 people replied to the post, with one writing: "That's incredibly rude and beyond inappropriate. You are NTA and your BF is a rude, entitled AH who would be thrown out of most restaurants in the US for that sort of behaviour."
