Sobbing and Scandal
Recently divorced, I gave into my friend's suggestion of
going online to find a date. I found the website of what sounded like an
interesting man. There was no picture, but how he described himself
sounded to me like my type. After emailing back and forth for a while, we
met at a local restaurant for a drink.
When he arrived, he was pretty much as he described, however, he had just
recently separated from his wife, not divorced.
I asked if he wanted a drink, however, he did not drink. I had a glass of
We talked for a while then he announced he was hungry, so he got up and
got us a table for dinner. Since he was buying, I figured why not, things
had gone pretty good so far.
At the table, he decided upon a steak, but when the waitress asked him
what kind of potato he wanted, he could not make up his mind and asked her
to just choose one for him. She said she couldn't do that and for him
just to pick one. He repeated he didn't know what he wanted and asked me
to choose one for him. I thought to myself, "Geez, this guy can't pick a
potato?" He finally decided on the french fries. I asked for another
glass of wine.
When the waitress left, he began telling me how it came to be he and his
wife separated. He began to cry, stating his wife was caught having sex
with the local township superintendant by her supervisor. The wife
supposedly told the boss it would not happen again. Well, two weeks
later, they were caught having sex on his desk during work hours. The
wife told him that it was just a made up story because her boss hated her
and wanted to get her fired.
He believed her until the scandal made the local papers and the township
superintendant was forced to resign, his wife publically filing for
divorce. By this time, the guy was crying, sobbing, and the meal had come.
I asked for more wine.....
People sitting around us were staring. I told him that I had to get home
to let my dog out, asked the waitress for a doggy bag and we left.
On the way out, he asked if he could see me again, as he had a really good
time and I was someone he could talk to! Needless to say, I never saw him
