Awkward!


Foot in mouth!

Until I am eligible for a student nurse position (2 more weeks!), I work at a restaurant. Tonight, a table was pre-set in my section with two menus and a single rose.

An engagement? Anniversary? What special occasion did I have?

The couple came and chatted away. I greeted them and asked what the occasion was. “Just being sweet” was the answer. I smiled at the gentleman. “Well, as I like to quote Flannery O’Connor ‘A Good Man is Hard to Find’!” I left them to their conversation.

It seemed they were enjoying a leisurely dinner, and the plates were cleared. Dessert?? No. Are you sure? I could easily turn this into an anniversary or birthday discount?

“It’s a first date.”

Red faced, all I can get out is, “Been there!” and I leave.

I don’t know how the date went from his or her angle, but either way, I got a $22 tip out of the deal.
