At Least He Paid the Bar Tab

January 4th, 2012 by Sara (Atlanta, Georgia)

This was the worst date I ever went on. I had met this person through friends at work. He asked me out to dinner. He picked me up on time and we went downtown to a nice restaurant. After a very good dinner, some fairly interesting conversation and a few cocktails, he asked me to go to a lounge down the street, for some dancing. I said alright and we walked down to the lounge which was only a block away from the restaurant. We sat at the bar, ordered a drink and listened to the band for a bit. Some friends of his came in and waved in passing. After a while, the conversation got very personal and he was really making advances that I was not ready for, on a first date. I was not responding well. He got up and said he was going to say “hi” to his friends for a minute. After ten or fifteen minutes, I started looking around and just as I did the bartender brought me a drink and said it was from him. I thanked him and sat for another ten minutes or so, waiting. Finally, I got up and walked the direction my date had gone to see his friends. That corner of the lounge was fairly empty and they were nowhere in sight. I went back to the bar and asked the bartender how much we owed, he said the bill had been paid. So, I was stuck, downtown without a ride home. I had to call a cab, it cost me over $30.00 to get home.
