I’m use to her habits though and I suppose through our friendship, I’m not as bad as I use to be. Of course now that I think about it, I could be worse. Who knows.
Anyway, we were seated and looking at the menu when I began to chastise her for talking to strangers. Talking to someone is one thing but sometimes she gave away a little more information than she needed to. Simply things strangers don’t need to know.
“I don’t do it all the time.” She said defensively.
I felt my face twist as I looked at her but I remained quiet. Our waiter came out to take our order and as he approached the table he smiled.
“Hello ladies, my name is John and I’ll be taking care of you tonight.”
Before he could finish his spill my friend points to herself, “I’m T.”
She then pointed at me and said, “That’s Laura.”
She literally just introduced us to our waiter after defending herself. I wasn’t sure which part of the whole scenario to be more upset about. The waiter seemed stunned and also uncomfortable.
“Okay,” he said, “What can I get for you tonight?”
Clearly he didn’t care who we were and that was the first time in his life his customers had introduced themselves. As soon as it was out of her mouth, T realized what she had done and looked at me sheepishly. I didn’t say anything as my disapproving glare said it all.
I rest my case.
