She Asked What?


I was perusing my "random thoughts" tag to find the link I used on Monday (the one about how I don't lose things), and I stumbled across this gem. This is the second time I've reposted it, but it's worth the repost. It originally appeared on September 7, 2008.  

Since the kitchen has been down, we've been going out to eat a lot. It's easier than trying to wash dishes in the bathroom sink. Tonight we ended up at Chili's.  

I was fighting off a headache, so I was a bit more cranky than usual. Unfortunately, we got seated right behind a group of girls who were out to have a good time. Loudly.  

Chili's is normally loud. These girls were louder. And they were cackling like they had had a bit too much to drink. When they laughed, they just had to hit the back of their seat which was right up against my seat. It was worse than the day I was at Ruby's behind the young child who would not sit still. (At least in that case I could forgive the child for not knowing any better.)  

Because our tables were back to back, we had the same server. After he had brought us our drinks, he went to take their order.  

I guess the girls thought he was cute. They were very obviously flirting. They asked if the server was married.  He was. Then they asked his age and how long he'd been married. These questions were getting more and more personal. And then one of the girls came out with this impertinence:  

"Have you cheated on her yet?"  

Seriously. They asked that. My jaw just about hit the table. (I was so astonished I did not hear how he responded. I hope he gave them a very rude answer.)  

Some people. I mean, really.

  1. Woah. That would have taken me by surprise, too. The implied follow-up question seems to be, "Do you want to?" or even "Can I be your first?" This reminds me of that married affair website "Ashley Madison." Ugh.

    1. Funny. When I scheduled this, I hadn't heard about the Ashley Madison thing. Now, this repost seems rather timely.

  2. Wow was the first thing that popped into my mind. I wonder if they left him a big tip.

    1. I don't know if they could have compensated him enough for their rudeness.

  3. Obviously these 2 slut-o-ramas went to the Wal-mart school of etiquette.

  4. The 'yet' is just disgusting. I just don't understand people some days.

  5. Were they teenagers? They sound like teenagers. Teenagers are awful.

    1. I believe they were in their 20s. They couldn't have been teens as they were drunk. (Well, they could have been, but I certainly hope not.)

  6. I can't help but feel bad for the one who asked the question ending in yet. Going through life so jaded at such a young age. But then again I live in the Midwest.

  7. Just reminds me that people in cafes and restaurants don't get paid nearly enough. They always work from such a powerless position.

  8. It is a bit of a jaded view of life for girls so young. Typical selfish girls not considering who else is around them. Some of them think they own the world.

  9. I can believe it! Sad, that I can though! I hope his answer was just as rude!

    1. I really hope it was. It was the worst time for something to happen for me to miss that reply, but I bet he said something innocuous and got away as fast as he could.
