He came in about 90 minutes from close, a stack of cards and a dozen roses.

He made a reservation for two and arrived 30 minutes prior to drop off said items. The date was waiting to be picked up but he wanted all details perfect and clear with the waiter. Mark set up the table away from the rest of the dining room, since this guy planned on popping the question.

There was an air or mild humor and suspence with a dash of nervousness thrown in. Mark particularly didn't want to screw anything up, seeing that this was a bit of a big deal.

Then they walked in...and we all looked at each other, a bit confused.

We'd never seen the guy before, but the woman was a regular. A regular who's never in with the same guy. She tends to dress with a bit of promiscuity, sits on the same side of booths with her comanion, gets a little "handsy" from time to time. And this was our first time ever seeing the Proposer...

But you being the seasoned waiter, didn't miss a beat, and the proposer's evening went off without a hitch, right?

I'm guessing tears and walk out. Very cynical but...

At your service, Ospite

I am not in the restaurant business, I am in the people business. I use every opportunity to people watch, because to me, even the most mundane is fascinating.
