‘I ditched date from hell by pretending to need loo and running – but feel bad’11/24/2021
Going on a first date can be nerve racking – from wondering what to wear and where to go.
But despite this, one lad plucked up the courage to ask his crush out on a date.
He had hoped for a romantic evening but was left reeling when she made racist comments and was rude to waiting staff.
The lad felt he had no other option that to ditch the woman and do a runner – but felt bad for doing so.
Taking to Reddit to ask if he was an “a**hole” for ditching his date, the lad explained in the post how the night went from bad to worse.
“So we sit at the bar and have a pleasant chat for a few minutes and then they tell us our table is ready. Then we go to our table and it's got a huge grill with a fire on it and she instantly asks what this is.”
Diners cook the meat themselves at their tables at Korean BBQ restaurants – but the woman was not aware of this.
Although her date reassured the woman they could order off a different menu, she was not convinced.
And so she insisted that the waiting staff cook for her.
The lad claimed: “She insisted on calling the waitress over and asking her to put the meat on the grill and demanded to be served after it was ready. This elderly Korean lady had to shuffle between busy tables and come and flip the meat and serve our plates.”
Spotting the red flags due to her attitude, the lad still had hopes for the date to go well as he wanted to secure some “adult” time with his date.
But things were just about to get a whole lot worse.
Not only was she rude to staff, she uncovered herself as racist.
After being given a dessert menu, the lad claimed that the woman said: "My god this place is a nightmare, all these useless immigrants (she's white) come into the country and don't even work and eat up our tax dollars. Are they even legal?"
Unsurprisingly, this left other diners offended.
The bloke added: “And she said it loudly enough that a nearby table of brown people in their 20s started giving her dirty looks and whispering to each other. She notices this and goes ‘same goes for these insert racist word for people of Pakistan'…
“I'm INDIAN and she used this in front of me.”
Stunned by the vile remarks, the man decided to go to the bathroom, pay his half and do a runner – leaving the woman without any transport to get home.
Awkwardly, he goes to the same gym as the woman.
He added: “Now I'm even thinking of switching gyms but I'm just gonna go in the morning, I don't know what I will say if I ever meet her again.”
Overwhelmingly, many people took to the comments to defend the original poster and declared him not to be an “a**hole.”
One person commented: “YIKES. Run for the hills and when you get there, don't stop running. If she asks why you ditched her, tell her you simply don't date racists.”
Another person advised: “For the future OP(original poster), when people act like s*** to servers, waiters and so on. Just stand up and leave then and there. People like that are always rotten to the core.”
A third person claimed: “Her ugly personality hides her pretty face.”
Someone else said: “Oh hell no. I hope the long walk back gave her some time to reflect on why the f*** she's so racist, but there's no reason why she has the self perception required for that.”
Meanwhile, a fifth person remarked: “Honestly If I were you, I wouldn't have paid.”
