|Hey, at least it's not McDonald's|
"High school, my boyfriend and I were dropped off at McDonalds and part of my gift was an Aladdin plastic cup."
"My boyfriend told me he was taking me out and took me to a very expensive place. He expected me to split the bill so I had to pay for half. I would have rather gone to a less expensive restaurant so I did not have to pay so much."
"Sitting at home eating ho hos, watching Bridget Jones (seriously) and drinking cheap wine my first year living in New York."
"My date ordered a full bottle of wine, drank it all, and then his credit card was rejected so he asked me to pay. I didn't, so he found another credit card that worked. But it was our last date!"
"A Valentine's Day dinner where my mother-in-law joined us. Do I have to explain why this was the worst Valentine's Day dinner ever?"
"At the now closed Chelsea restaurant, where they messed up my husbands pasta, replaced it with flabby tasteless pasta primavera, overcharged us, added a tax of 15%, and when I complained, the owner defended the surly waitress, then added: 'It's Valentines Day, what the *&@!# do you expect!'"
"I went on a double date with a blind date a 'friend' set me up on that coincided with V-Day. He showed up and was about 4.5' tall. When we got to the restaurant I immediately dragged my friend to the ladies room where I burst into tears over this troll she set me up with. She said to just make it through dinner and we would leave.
We went back to the table and started looking at the menu. A couple of minutes later the waitress brought over his meal. He had ordered his food while we were in the ladies room. We ordered and then, after the waitress walked away, he scraped his kernel corn off his plate and onto the table because "he didn't order corn". At this point I was in tears at the table. After we ate I wanted to pay for my dinner - I threw a 20 on the table for my meal, but he ran ahead to the station and paid for both of ours. My friend got my money off the table, I thought to give it back to me, but she kept it. I never saw him or my loser friend again."
"Everyone since I've learned how to dine."
