When everyone was browsing their menus, she didn’t take a look at hers and just continued to chat with the people around her. Then, the group ordered their food and drinks, and when the waitress came around to her, she said she just wanted water and gave her a smile.
“Everyone immediately looked uncomfortable, and the waitress asked if I was sure, which did make me feel a little embarrassed, and [I] said yes before looking at my friend for her to order,” she said.
Overall, though, she thought the night went pretty well. She continued to have small talk with everyone, and no one asked her why she hadn’t ordered anything.
She thought everything was fine until Jane texted her the next day, saying she embarrassed her in front of her future in-laws. Now, she feels bad, thinking that she would be the only one embarrassed about the situation.
“I wanted to support my friend, but I should have been honest about why I originally couldn’t come and not have gone,” she stated.
Do you think she should have led with honesty about being unable to afford the fancy restaurant? Or do you think Jane should have responded more kindly toward her?
