Impeccable Table Manners

Sam and Rebecca


What happened on the date

Sam | Rebecca
Any awkward moments?
She showed me a picture of her sick at one point, but assured me her grandparents had already seen it.
Good table manners?
Good table manners?
Very. I tried to make him eat a decorative pebble for £20, but he refused.

I include Sam’s answer to the awkward moments question here because it shows the “impeccable” stock reply up for what it really is. props to Rebecca for very likely early on seeing this date was going to be a disaster and decided to at least make it memorable. Pro-tip: Carry a picture of your puke with you wherever you go – just in case.

And, yes, Rebecca sounds a “bit much” but we’ve all been there – nerves on a date makes you do the strangest things.
