Tête-à-Tête Disrupted By Tirades

December 17, 2007

in Couples Stories

My wife and I were having a quiet dinner together at a nice restaurant. That is, until our pleasant tête-à-tête was rudely interrupted by the bellows from a couple sitting nearby. They were apparently drunk to the gills, and oblivious to the ill will their behavior was engendering among other diners. When it was apparent that restaurant staff was going to ignore the matter, I approached the manager and informed him that the couple’s behavior was ruining the dining experience for others. He went to their table, whereupon the couple berated him, stating that they had the right to be there since they were paying customers. The manager walked away and the couple continued on with their tirades (much of it against each other). Eventually a police officer arrived and told them they had to leave. The couple seemed stunned and angered by his order, but complied anyway. As they were departing, everyone in the restaurant started applauding.

Kudos to the manager for calling in the cops!

Well done to the manager for at calling the police but he took way too long to do it… if in fact it was him. Maybe one of the other diners did. Nothing worse than sitting down for a quiet meal, only to have some loud-mouth ruining it.

I doubt the police would have responded to a patron of the restaurant wanting another patron removed.

I also doubt the manager went out back and debated about whether he should call the police or not and finally decided that he should. He asked the couple to leave, they refused, he called the police, the police responded at their own pace (they do usually have a few other things to do which might be more important).
