"I used to work at Olive Garden and one day a coworker of mine waited on a man and a woman who were apparently fighting. After their entree, the guy gets visibly angry, gets up, and leaves. The woman was sitting there crying when my coworker approaches her and asks if everything is ok. She asks if we come out and sing for people's birthdays, and he tells her that we do. She then proceeds to order something off of the dessert menu and asks that we come out and sing for her because it was her birthday. She was still crying when we came out to sing, it was probably the saddest thing I saw the entire time I worked there."
"I waited tables for a short time about five years ago, during that time I only remember seeing one date go absolutely terrible.
They were both obviously upset before they arrived, very polite to me, but didn't say anything to each other when I came to the table. It escalated, the whole restaurant could hear them fighting, then finally she said something like, 'Fine, go have fun with your other woman!' and she got up and stormed off.
He stayed, paid for the food she already ordered and had it put in a to-go box, and had three or four beers. The whole time he just stared out the window, playing with his wedding ring, which he had taken off."
"I work in a country bar and a man brought a girl in for her birthday. She was having a great time, having jello shots and what not. Next thing we know she's out in the parking lot passed out. Turns out he put muscle relaxers in her jello shots not knowing she had severe asthma. I'm in a small town so here everyone knows everybody. These people we didn't know and were just fine and seemed normal. When everyone realized what happened, the guy tried to take off. 10 or so regulars (big dudes with cowboy hats who don't take this stuff lightly) surrounded his car and made sure he didn't leave until the cops showed up."
"Once had a guy come in on Valentine's Day with his date. I asked how long they were together. She said two years and that it was their anniversary. She seemed very excited, but the guy was very blah. They were eating their dinners when I came by to check on them. The guy was complaining about everything, but I gave him excellent service the whole time. The girl seemed very uncomfortable most of the time. She was very polite to me, however, but she was very touchy-feely to the guy, she was rubbing his neck and kissing his cheek, but he seemed uninterested. Sometime in between dinner and dessert, the guy got up and went to the 'bathroom.' The girl sat there for two hours. She was crying hysterically for the last half an hour. After repeatedly trying to calm her down, I paid for some of her tab and sat down and listened to her vent before offering to get her a cab. She kept saying that she hated when he did stuff like this (implying he had done it before). I told her she should probably move on. She looked offended and said, 'No, you don't know what you're talking about, he'll come back for me. He's just mad because he doesn't like spending money.' She got up and went outside to wait on a bench in front of a restaurant. She waited there for an additional two hours. He never came.
That was so cold."
