Anxiety runs on the female side of my family, and I’m used to little hiccups when it comes to my mom, but she just acted like a complete child at dinner with our family last night. It started small. She complained about where we were seated and glared daggers at a couple that ‘dared’ to bring their small child to a nice restaurant. When the waitress–who was perfectly nice and in my eyes a model server–brought my mom her meal, she flipped immediately, saying that it was wrong and not what she ordered. Okay, fine, people make mistakes, so the waitress takes it away and puts in another order.
But oh. My. God. Ladies. When my mom got her order back? She FREAKED and screamed at the waitress that she didn’t want it any more and to just take it away. I was absolutely mortified, and it was even worse that my brother was friends with the waitress to begin with.
But it didn’t even stop there, it just got worse and worse to where my mom called the waitress a ‘cocky bitch’–not to her face, thank god–for trying to be civil and nice about the whole thing. I mean REALLY? If I had ever acted like that I’m sure my own father would have backhanded me for such rudeness.
I’m really at such a loss. I feel like there’s a deeper issue going on here but I am still so furious to even try to figure out what it is.
I left the poor waitress an apology note and all the cash I had, but I still feel like it’s not enough.
