Hop on over

My roommate and I were having a "guys are creeps" night when we decided around midnight we needed breakfast. And a total stranger, a strange one at that, decided to more than prove our opinion to be the correct one. We decided to run over to the IHOP on route 60 in Revere and grab a midnight pancake breakfast.

L and I started talking about pets, I own the house, and was letting her know that she could obtain just about any kind of pet she wanted. Except for cats, which neither I, or my current pets, are fond of.

Suddenly an older man (older even than this forty year single lady) leaned toward us and said, "Once when my ex-wife and I were making love, her cat bit me." We were both stunned and could not believe what this man said! Did he think we were going to offer him sex or share our worst pairing stories? In an IHOP! at midnight! I gave him my best, you suck and should die stare and said in a voice loud enough for the entire diner to hear.

"Let's just pretend you DID NOT just say something so disgusting to two ladies you DO NOT even know!"

The restaurant paused for a minute, and he grabbed his bill and rushed to the front door, stopping long enough to pay for his uneaten food.

Thanks so much to the waitress who came over a second later to let us know that he had a tendency to bother woman in the restaurant. And to the person who put him there, also knowing there was a good chance we would be offended by him. Thanks for standing together ladies. Creeps like that should be put very far away from all human beings, or banned from the establishment all together. Not allowed to offend at random.
