We’ve Got A Dambreaker Down

“A rejection is nothing more than a necessary step in the pursuit of success.”~ Bo Bennett
 
To my surprise, this evening I would make a return to the local Applebee’s for dinner. The same one where the two “cougars” of neighbors were flirting with the waitress when I went there last Friday.
 
I went with three different people, and I had told them about how really cute the young woman was.
 
The collective group was indecisive and I stepped away. When I came back, they said that’s where we were going. I then said that if she was working again, that I would point her out to them so that they could see for themselves how cute she really is.
 
I found it really peculiar that when I was ahead of the pack and went into the restaurant that we were seated at the same table that I sat at last Friday, and a chair was already removed from the same spot at the table. Weird.
 
Well, we did not have the same waitress. We had a guy waiting on us that was just as good as far as service goes. I asked him if she was working though. He said that she was there, but not on the clock. Then a few seconds later, I saw her and I tried very unconspicuously to point her out to the rest of the group that was with me tonight.
 
I was RIGHT (for once) about her being really cute. Neener neener neener!!!
 
But she never looked our direction, or walked by or anything. Up until about 6:00 when she did walk by and stopped at our table to say hello. I introduced the “gang” to this waitress and they exchanged greetings.
 
I was moving into “cute and quirky” mode and I said to her.. “Sorry, I don’t have a camera with me tonight.” Because I took her picture last Friday.
 
Her response was more of relief by saying, “Good because I don’t like pictures. I don’t do well with it.”
 
Cute & quirky: FAIL.
 
She kept herself at a distance, didn’t make any contact with me or anyone else at the table and kept shifting her weight from one leg to the other, swinging her arms. She was a bowl of JELL-O.
 
She asked if we needed anything and if we were satisfied with our food and what not, and we gave her the thumbs up. Then she said that she had been there working the lunch hours and was off for a few hours but back on the clock again at 6:00. I looked at my watch and it was exactly that. So she asked again if she could get us anything and we politely declined. From that point she walked away. She would never even walk anywhere near our table the rest of the evening.
 
So at the end of our night there Ipulled some cash from my wallet and slipped it into my hand again like I had done on Friday. Then when I saw her, I went into her direction. She would cross directly in front of me and excuse herself, and I called out, “Hey, come here?”.
 
She never moved. Only turned around. I stuck out my hand to “shake her hand” and I was telling her how good it was to see her again and that I had not thought that I would be back so soon. She probably saw the money in between my fingers this time and she just suggested that I give the money to our actual server.
 
I told her that I had already done so on the credit card slip. And that it was for her.
 
She looked right at me, didn’t raise her voice or throw a fit… simply said, “No!”.
 
Ummm…
 
I told her that it was for her. Again, she said “No!”.
 
I asked if she was going to take it or not and once more, the same as the first two times came out: “No!”. She didn’t even blink.
 
I know what waitresses in the state receive per hour, and it was only $5.00 that I was given her. Not the keys to a new car which resembles her actual first name.
 
When I gave up the offer and retreated, she turned back around and walked away without as much as saying, “Have a good night.”
 
So I guess this means that she probably has a boyfriend, or was thinking that I was trying to do something more than what I was intending on.
 
Also, I guess this is going to mean that I am going to have to go back and the class for being cute and quirky over again.
 
I was shot down, but I was not kept down. HER LOSS.
 
Back to the drawing boards!!!!!!!!!!
