Here is a sad story:(

So yesterday I took my boyfriend out for our weekly "date night" and I was having a sort of bad day already. I redyed my hair and hated it and he made fun of it so I was feeling down about how I looked and I still have no clean pants so I had to wear his. Anyway, I took him out to Bennigans (my favorite ever) and they didn't have any smoking tables open so we had to sit by the bar at a tiny table with really uncomfy stools. But then the waitress said we got $2 drinks since we were by the bar!! I was happy again. I ordered a margarita and took a big sip. Then I remembered... I am on medication that doesn't allow me to drink alcohol without getting violently ill.:(:(:( Stupid me. So my boy gets to enjoy my drink along with his beer... Then our food came and mine was cold:( Feel sorry for me. Thanks.

Feel sorry for you? Pffft. LOL That is how it goes when I go to a restaurant. It is unfortunate when we go out to eat and have a preconceived good time planned and it all goes wrong. I have been there many times and quite used to it. Something is normally wrong. I've always considered it a curse. So it is a rare occasion that I go out to eat. If they can't get my food right then I know they don't do anything else properly like clean. If this doesn't happen very often then consider yourself blessed. It could be worse. I went to a place only twice. It was almost a year apart and BOTH times they brought me the wrong food. I also think they brought me the SAME wrong order both times. LOL Then if I complain about something there is always some 24 year old punk manager who thinks he is the king that wants a confrontation. That never goes well. People thought I was exaggerating until they saw it for themselves. Every time I went out to eat with my girlfriend's parents it happened. Every time. I am blessed with many things but my luck seems to stay at home when I go out to eat. Now about 98% of the time I prepare my own food at home or go to Subway. I can see them make it. LOL I hope you didn't catch my curse by internet association. LOL

Thanks a lot!! I usually have a good time when I go out. They never get the food wrong (and I am a very picky eater!) I am sorry that you do not have good luck, but this discussion is about ME okay :P

I figured it might make you feel better to know how bad I have it every time. LOL. It does suck when you EXPECT a certain situation and things go awry. Therefore you have my shoulder to cry on. Look at it this way, next week's night out will be 10 times better. And you can have a pitcher of Margaritas to make up for time lost. ;)

Whoops. I hope you can drink next week. If not you'll have to get pig drunk when you can to make up for the lost time. =)

That was an attempt to cheer you up, sorry my friend, it looks like it did not work, ok back to being serious. I actually quite like the red you had before, and I am not being mean here either. Red does suit you so you need to thump your boyfriend on the head. Sorry you had a bad day yesterday, hopefully it will be better for you today, and I'll try to be nicer.

Aww thank you. The red in my other avatar was not the true color of my hair, it was photoshopped, it was more of a light auburn, which I liked. Then I dyed it how it looks in my current picture. Then I didn't like that so I decided to dye it bright red, but it kind of turned out bright pink and I hate it haha but I have come to term with it now! Thank you :)

Oh sounds like you had a bad day. Bad hair and no margarita. You have my sympathy. Hope today is better. I bet your hair looks fine. P.S. When are you going to wash your pants? :)

You know, I have my hamper sitting by the door full of dirty clothes, ready to go... The problem is last time I went down to the laundry room some jerk was taking up both the washers! I think today I will try again...

What I used to do when I lived in an apartment was to go to the laundry room with the quarters and one item of clothing. If the washer was free, I would start the machine and put the item in and then go get the heavy basket and the soap.

Well, your boyfriend is an idiot. OK. He's really just insensitive. Warning sign!!!!! It does sound like the day would have been better spent asleep, but if nothing bad happens to you, how do you appreciate all the good stuff? At least it sounds like your boyfriend had a good time!

Aww he is actually a sweetheart, we just joke like that! Although he did get to have a good time last night, the little jerk.

I am so sorry you had such a bad "date nigt". Did you get sick or did you stop drinking it before you did? Did you send your dinner back since it was cold? I would have...

Keep your head up wooitsmolly. Red hair is hot! The fact that your boyfriend laughed I say don't even take it personal. My fiance does that all the time, I'm so used to it because I know he doesn't mean it. As far as the food being cold, you should've made them take it back and demanded them to fix it or give you something else. I hardly make stinks at restaurants, but seriously sometimes you just have to. Specially how expensive eating out is, you can not say anything. I say make the best of it next time you go out splurge and spoil yourself! Take yourself to the nail shop and treat yourself to a drink. Sometimes when I go through stuff like that, I treat myself and it usually makes me feel better. Cheer up hon, red hair is so in!!! I've had all the colors you can imagine, and I changed my red to blond for the summer and I can't wait to go back to RED!!!! lol

I love red hair, but right now it is bright pink and looks kind of silly :P I am over it though and it was kind of funny when I went grocery shopping last night and all the old people gave me funny looks. Thanks for the comment :)

I'm sorry, I can't feel sorry for you. You get 2.00 drinks, and can smoke inside. WOW! Bars/restaurants here charge about 7.00 for a margarita, and you have to stand out on the sidewalk to smoke. Oh, and enjoy your hair, any colour is better than grey....LOL

Thanks about the hair, and normally drinks cost a lot more, they were only so cheap because it was after a certain time on a certain day and we were sitting by the bar.

wow. its one of those days when this just gets worst as the day progresses. one thing i realized is that if everything goes bad when you wake in the morning, then it tends to stay that way. if you have the time, go back to bed, sleep it off and wake up to, hopefully a better one. is that the "redyed" hair in your picture? if it is, there is nothing wrong with it.

Boy you where having a crappy day. I do feel sorry for you. How long are you going to be on the medication? I hope you will not be on for long. I do love margaritas. I do not drink but maybe once a year. I hope you can fix your hair. Good luck

So you have made amends with your boyfriend????? Is every thing ok between you? It sounds as though you were down and so the day keeped getting worse, but they were only minor things(which when you are down will get to you) You should have been able to still enjoy yourselves, but it seems your not happy.... Him making fun of you doesn't help either..... I hope you sort your troubles out soon, so you can put a genuine smile on your face and Enjoy your days and nights out better.

Okay, lets try and turn this into some positives 1. At least you have hair. I still have all mine, it's in a shoe box under my bed 2. You don't have a hangover today. I went on a guiness binge last week that kept me in the toilet almost all the next day...i thought my butt had struck oil. 3. You didn't burn your tongue on the ridiculously piping hot food they serve at restaurants...nothing worse than that burnt, tingly feeling that seems to stay for day there, hope that helped

Those are all good points. I am done being sad anyway because I have a piping hot pizza and breadsticks on the way as I type :)

Your boyfriend sounds like he's all that nice. I hope he was just joking in a nice way, but since it hurt your feelings then it wasn't nice joking. Stinks that you couldn't drink, maybe the next time you go out and your not on meds you can sit at the same spot and you can order your drink and only pay 2 dollars for it. I would have asked to have my plate heated, since my food was cold. Depending on certain foods, they shouldn't be eaten cold. Well, I hope your day get's better, better yet your week.

I am so sorry that you had a bad day. Not too long ago I went out for dinner and ordered a steak and guess what? It was all fat and no meat oh I was mad and the potatoe was cold and not done either they wanted to give me another one but I said no because my hubby is already eating and he will l have to wait for me so I thought just forget it and I didn't have to pay for the steak. My hubby said his was terrible too. I know that feeling when things go wrong.
