“Damn you. I hope they will make you pay for this.”
She stood up and walked out on me.
On our first date.
I had carefully checked the reviews and when I made the reservation I insisted on having the best table.
All dressed up, shaved and slightly perfumed I picked her up in my car.
“A surprise !”, I said when she asked me where we were going to.
Looking at today’s special of the Grill House, she could not stop gagging.
I truly didn’t know she was a vegetarian.
And of course, they made me pay for this.
