Last night, I went out with a friend for drinks and dinner after work. We were really looking forward to sangria so we went to the local Mexican restaurant. It was packed and there were people who had been waiting for quite some time.
This is pretty normal considering it’s a Friday night at peak hours.
This one lady there could not be bothered to wait. She waited 20 minutes and lost her mind because a couple was seated at the bar before her though they had arrived after her. She had 4 people in her party and they obviously couldn’t seat everyone at the bar. Also, I’m pretty sure bar seating there is first come first serve walk-up, and if she wasn’t fast enough, that’s not anyone’s problem.
Anyway, she decided to direct her anger towards the hostesses who were probably 16. She told them they were useless human beings and that they needed to get new jobs because they didn’t know what they were doing.
I was DISGUSTED. If she had a problem, she could have talked to the managers. She didn’t need to embarrass these girls in front of a packed room full of strangers.
One of them was on the verge of tears. It was just totally unnecessary and really awful for someone to take their anger out on a KID like that.
When Hangry McAsshole was finally seated, I could see the hostesses were still visibly upset so I got up and said, look girls, what just happened was disgusting. It was not your fault. You have jobs and are working on a Friday night when you can be out with your friends. You’re doing the right thing. Don’t let a grumpy lady ruin your night. She was clearly crazy so you just ignore her and have a great weekend.
I just felt SO incredibly bad for them and was horrified that an adult could behave that way.
I was addressing some invites by hand last night and had a moment where I questioned if everyone thought these would look like complete shit.
This is why I hate wedding magazines and expos because I feel like while they are sometimes helpful, they make you question your choices and make you feel bad that you don’t have a light up dance floor that costs $5k.
I had a moment where Matt was like dude snap out of it. Nobody is going to care about these envelopes anyway because they’re going to go in the trash. Truth bomb.
This whole process for us has been surprisingly laid back. I thought I was going to be a crazy person about it, but it has been so simple and non-stressful so now that we’re down to the wire, I’m starting to feel a little pressure. I am happy with the decisions I’ve made and I know that things aren’t going to be 100% perfect and I can live with that. These things always come together in the end and as long as Matt is at the end of the aisle, that’s all I care about.
