It’s sadly not so shocking to see people mistreat servers at a restaurant, but one woman was so shocked at how her date treated the staff while they were out on a date that she actually walked out.
A woman sought advice on Reddit' forum as to whether she overreacted to what she called her date’s “unacceptable” behavior when they were out to dinner. She writes that she had been dating the guy, Rhett, for four months, and it was the first time she was visiting his town to go out for dinner.
She explains that when it was time for them to order their meal “he pulled a small bell out of his jacket pocket, lifted it up then started shaking it,” adding, “It produced a loud, annoying sound my ears started hurting. I was so confused I asked what he was doing and he said that he was trying to get one of the waiter staff's attention.” She quickly told him it was “embarrassing,” and demanded he stop, but he continued. She says everyone was looking at them and notes, “I threatened to leave the place and cancel dinner if he wouldn't and he kept doing it."
Someone did come to take their order but by then the date was over and she began to leave, but he continued to argue with her that the bell was “a perfect solution for no longer be forced to wait till someone shows up.” She insisted it was “inappropriate and embarrassing,” and he argued she was “being too sensitive and overreacted over nothing,” insisting his idea was “genius.”
- Rhett is now demanding an apology, and the OP was wondering if she did indeed overreact, but more than 3,000 folks on Reddit assured her she didn’t.
- “That's incredibly rude and beyond inappropriate,” one person commented. “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 behavior.”
- “I worked at a restaurant for years and if someone ever came into my work and brought a bell I would kick them out and refuse service,” another added. “This man is gaslighting you. You should leave him seriously.”
