New York-based writer Kelly Fine went out to dinner last Wednesday hoping to satisfy a sushi craving. What she ended up getting was dinner and a show.
Once she got to the sushi bar in Brooklyn, the 24-year-old overheard the worst dinner date ever: A man spent the entire evening ordering for the woman he was with and browbeating the waitress for not having his favorite kind of fish.
Fine decided to live-tweet the bro’s best lines, starting with this doozy:
It only got worse from there:
He was all business when it came to wine, too:
Fine told The Huffington Post she probably wouldn’t have noticed the very picky, very obnoxious man had he been using his inside voice.
“He was very loud. At first I was surprised by his volume more than anything else,” she said. “Then I was just so shocked by the way he was talking to everyone, and surprised that his date seemed so unsurprised.”
She eventually realized that the pair weren’t anything serious, but not before her tweets racked up hundreds of retweets and thousands of “likes.”
Of course, she has her critics, too, including some who wondered why she eavesdropped in the first place.
“There have also been a lot of places calling me a loser for eating alone at a sushi bar,” Fine told HuffPost. “Eating alone is great, y’all. I might be a loser for a variety of other reasons, but sitting alone at a restaurant is not one.”
Nothing wrong with a party of one ― especially when it’s this entertaining.
