Nick had his first "date" Saturday night.  He invited a girl to the Homecoming dance.  It was actually a group of kids that went together, the guys were friends and the girls were friends.  They had a good time at the dance but had to wait forever for their food at dinner. They had reservations at 6:45 and were seated immediately but didn't leave the restaurant until almost 9pm!  There were 8 kids and 5 ordered the Fettucini Alfredo and the other three ordered burgers. One of the boys ordered something they didn't have but the waitress didn't come and tell him until 10 minutes after the order was placed.  Then she didn't bring a menu with her so he could pick something else out.  Then the waitress wasn't bringing them drink refills and asking how they were doing at all.  Nick was annoyed about that.  He told me he only left a $2 tip because of the bad waitress.  His bill was $25 so he still left a pretty good tip for such bad service.  I think the waitress figured they were not going to tip very well because it was a group of 14-15 year olds...but she was WRONG.  Nick knew what she should have gotten had the service been good.

My wrists are still killing me so that is all for now. I took a photo of my left wrist, but it is too grizzly to post.  Hubby and the kids all think it looks too nasty.

Bummer about the eatery, but I'm sure they all still had fun.
Hope your wrist and poison ivy goes away quickly. All I can say is OUCH!! It is so hard not to scratch.

You know it really stinks that just cause they're kids the waitress didn't treat them with the respect they deserved as customers. Sorry about your wrists, hope they get better soon. Are the kitties okay, did they get it too?

Do your oatmeal soaks... Dr. C order. LOL

So sorry to hear about the pre-dance dinner, maybe a little letter to the place, will be in order? That isn't right, and that wasn't the McD's drive thru. kwim

Hope all is well (besides the itchies)

Nick looks so handsome! Hope he enjoyed his evening -- even though the restaurant experience sounds terrible!

So sorry about your nasty poison ivy. You poor girl!
