People-watching is everyone’s favorite pastime. And although most of us usually do people-watching silently, Twitter user @KellyeFine took things to the next level…
She live-tweeted a couple’s bad date, highlighting how rude the man was being to the woman and to the service staff at the restaurant. And for those who don’t know, live-tweeting is updating a thread in real-time as it unfolds for the Twittersphere to read about.
We’ve All Had Our Fair Share Of Bad Dates
If I had $10 for every bad date I’ve been on, I could probably buy a nice designer handbag with my earnings.
I can usually tell within the first few minutes if a date is going to be good or not.
She Live-Tweeted Everything So Her Followers Could Enjoy The Drama
Twitter user @KellyeFine was dining in a sushi bar one night when she started to overhear a couple on a date.
The man was acting very rude, so she decided to live-tweet the entire thing. Even though this thread is from 2016, the horror factor on this is so good, it’s basically timeless.
“I Don’t Look At Menus”
Kelly starts off by explaining that she’s sitting near a couple on their supposed “first date.”
The man takes charge and declares that he’s ordering for them both even though he doesn’t look at menus.
Questioning The Sushi Chef
The man starts acting like a total Brad (male Karen) at the restaurant and is asking the chefs why they don’t have what he wants.
Sometimes, you just need to suck it up and READ A DAMN MENU.
He’s Suffering The Consequences Of His Actions
Amen, Kelly! Why is this guy complaining to the chef about them not having the food he likes, when he hasn’t even looked at a menu yet?
The public restaurant isn’t catered to YOUR specific likes and dislikes, buddy!
Is He Missing Something?
For those who don’t know, sake is Japanese traditional alcohol made from fermented rice, and it is often served at sushi restaurants.
The woman on the date recommends that they have sake, to which he replies, “Sweetie, I can’t make all the decisions for us.” Pardon?
He’s Really Pining For Some Giant Clam
Once again, this guy is asking the waiter for something that isn’t on the menu.
And of course, he feels the need to slip in the whole “I don’t look at menus” thing again.
“Look At Me”
After the two order, the woman must have looked away for a SECOND, and he had to get her eyes right back on him.
Honestly, this makes me so mad because sometimes you just need a break from eye contact.
Update: They’ve Clearly Met Before
Kelly discovers that the two are not on a first date, but have indeed met before.
She claims that she is “still positive that this is a BAD date,” and we could not agree more.
Kelly Begins To Think They Are Married
This guy is seemingly talking badly about another woman, and Kelly is led to believe that he is talking about the woman’s mom.
One thing leads to another, and Kelly jumped to the conclusion that the two could be married.
“The Back Of Your Little Head” Yikes…
Wow, this guy is a total d-bag. If a guy said this to me on a date, I’d be horrified.
Honestly, there are probably 15 different ways in which he could have said that.
We Have Some Powerful Words For Him, Too
So, this dude also thinks that words don’t matter unless you give them power.
This might be true to some degree but is a bit of a tricky subject given the terrible history of some words. Even Kelly seems to be starting to get fed up with his antics.
Turns Out They’re Not Actually Married
So, turns out the two are NOT married, so we can all breathe a big sigh of relief.
My heart goes out to the woman this guy does end up marrying because she’s in for one hell of a ride.
He Slaps Chopsticks Out Of Her Hand
The poor woman is just trying to eat her sushi with her chopsticks when her date yells at her to stop.
Um, I’m sure it’s acceptable to eat sushi with chopsticks if you’d like. This guy needs to calm the heck down!
The Owner Got Involved
Then, the owner of the restaurant makes an appearance at the table to say hi to the woman.
And I feel like this situation can only go downhill, to be honest.
Tony Still Wants His Giant Clam
The man’s name is TONY, which is actually kind of fitting? And of course, he has to bring up the giant clams AGAIN, because why not?
The owner clearly didn’t even know what to say, and probably just stood there smiling.
The Grand Finale
Tony decides to go out and have a cigarette, and Kelly’s job here is finally done.
And that’s all, folks. A terrible first date, publicized online for our viewing pleasure.
