You Are Blowing It Big Time Buddy

Last night this young couple come in for dinner and it looks like the guy and girl are out on a first date. They order their drinks and are in no hurry to order their meals. In fact it took them close to 30 minutes to open their menu.

Then when they order they have no appetizers , just the entree. I am busy running around but I notice this guy is never shutting up and she cannot get a word in edgewise. An occasional yeah or chuckle is all she can manage.

They get their meal and then it comes to dessert time. They decline that and the guy is really starting to give me the impression he doesn't want me to interrupt his diarrhoea of the mouth. After about 15 minutes I give them the bill and it just sits there while this guy never shuts up.

I am the closer so I know I will have to tell this guy to take his girl elsewhere to continue his conversation with no doubt by this time himself. How do I know that?

Well everyone is gone and I am clearing off the last table when she sees me and says to him ,"oh we must be the last ones," while making a move to get up. This guy replies , oh that is okay and continues right on talking!

Oh no you don't buster brown! I walk over and tell him that the dining room is closed but if you would like to continue your conversation you can go to the bar which is still open. He says oh alright thanks very much. Her face showed a sense of relief. Obviously feeling the weight of this conversation being lifted off her shoulders.

Now here is my question to all you girls out there. Do you think she wanted to continue this conversation in the bar or just get outta there and do you think this guy talking too much has ruined any chance of a date next time.

What do you think by your experience?

you can tell. always. as a server we observe people constantly. Body language says a great deal. It sounds like he bombed. I've seen it before they get to nervous and can't shut up. Sad. But, maybe she realized that and might give him a second chance... maybe not.

He ruined it! Sounds exactly like she wants to get out of there but is too nice to say anything.

Waitress Diary...if she really sees something in him she will of course. I hope he gets a second chance anyway. Maybe she can give him some words of advice.

Jumpit...talking too much is not good for a guy on a first date nor is it the other way around. Gotta do something fun instead.

he'll get a second date to see if the verbal runs were nerves or not he does it again, i bet she gets up to use the washroom and doesn't return

Cat...I hope he lets her talk a bit or they go do something exciting.

Manuel said...

he's no chance! no starter? no sweet? too much yap yap as well? no chance...

I hope that the guy was just nervous and that's not how he all the time.

Maybe a second date will change it. I probably wouldn't myself.

He must of been really into what he was talking about.

Manuel...what a cheapskate! Just loves the sound of his voice.

Caz...I don't think many would give him a second chance either.
