Skip to comments.Grown Man Builds Menu Fort: 5 Signs Your Dinner Date Is A Disaster
Posted on 04/22/2013 5:28:23 PM PDT by Redcitizen
Well, this is awkward. A man was having a spat with his girlfriend at an Olive Garden in Charlotte, NC on Sunday night when he decided to resolve the matter in the utmost mature manner: defiantly building a fort of menus to shield his face from his girlfriend.
Fellow diner Adam Howell caught the incident on his camera phone, tweeting it out to his 650 followers, and the photo soon went viral. "A grown ass man is mad at his girlfriend at Olive Garden & has made a menu fort," he wrote, later updating his Twitter audience that the waitress eventually gave the man a time out by dismantling the his fort and taking his menu away. His date, on her cell phone, apparently was unfazed.

11) When the meal is done, orders another to take home. Expects you to pay.
Actually, I gave live updates on FR at the time. (Using a Palm Treo in 2004 - wow, time flies!)
Follow along here!
Wow. I’m gonna have to read up on all your posts on that thread. So I guess there wasn’t a second date?
I empathize with the guy.
I had a girlfriend who simply could not put down the cell phone, could not let it go to voice mail.... ever. She would talk endlessly to whomever was at the other end. It was always an issue with her and the source of many arguments.
I found myself in a similar circumstance, I got up, quietly found the server, paid the bill and left. Stopped at Wal-Mart Supercenter and bought new lock-sets for the doors on the way home and installed them immediately.
The poor bastard just needs to get out.
May I ask.. what fone you use today?
I reserve the right to be pro-Apple again if they actually follow through with making products here in the US (like they've announced) and start moving more production out of dictatorial baby-killing China (like they haven't announced).
LOL - Time for a new GF
There was a thread earlier today about 8m ‘shoddy’ Iphones.. a return situation IIRC, they might return it here.
“Is that your napkin? Mind if I blow my nose?”
“Pleated pants aren’t doing you any favors. Try darker colors and flat fronts”
“Don’t know what you’ve done but, did you have some Skoal before leaving the house?”
“Very unlady like to fart...like in a diaper”
How is Mrs. Yossarian doing?
My wife spit on me on our first date.
She was laughing. Though, other women have just spit on me.
12) After dinner asks you to walk her to a bus stop.
13) Finds out one of your major business clients is owned by a libertarian billionaire who is hated by liberals. The date turned out to be a barking moonbat leftard (a schoolteacher - go figure) in Minnestoopid. The client was a refinery owned by the EEEEEVVVVILLLLLL KOCH BROTHERS!
Actually happened, July 2011. I moved to Texas six weeks later.
Dates you for six weeks and thinks you are great. Then you tell her you have a CCW, she immeidately dumps you. Happened to me in sunny CA.
