She insisted that their waitress could leave the drink with them and she would be happy to enjoy it.
“I was sitting facing the bar and just as the waitress leaves I’m grabbing the shot and the guy who sent me the drink turns around and gives me an across-the-room cheers motion with his drink,” she said.
“I do the same and I’m about to take the shot and my date is like “are you really going to accept a drink from another guy while we are on a date?” I tell him it’s just a drink and it’s not a huge deal and I don’t even know that guy.”
She enjoyed her drink and turned to keep their conversation going, but her date was done. He got up from his seat, walked over to the bar to pay their tab, and left the place.
She was there all alone. Her date literally walked out on her. She still went ahead with hanging out with her friends for the remainder of the evening.
The following day, she sent her date a text, but he ignored what she had to say.
He confronted her about being a jerk and ignoring how he felt. He likened her accepting that drink from a stranger to slapping him right in the face.
She was confused by his response, as the stranger wasn’t someone she tried to talk to and she didn’t know the guy either.
She wished her date didn’t blow things out of proportion because they could have had a nice time together.
“I took the drink because it was a free drink,” she clarified. “The guy could’ve looked like Frankenstein, been 93 years old, or looked like a model. I would have drank it no matter what.”
Do you think it was rude to her date to drink the drink the stranger had sent over to her since it clearly made him feel less than?
