Spreading the Love

heart.jpgAfter a rather uneventful Valentine's Day, I decided it would be nice to take my wife to a restaurant that night. It was late and we decided to go to Bennigans, hoping there would not be a long wait.
So, we walked into the front doors and all we heard was this guy complaining to the hostess (who is working on V-day, mind you). He was incessantly complaining about how a couple that came in after them was seated first, and the poor hostess just kept quiet, but she was visibly frustrated. I was thinking of a way to stop this guy from complaining, but Monica apparently already had a plan... and executed it to perfection! No joke, she turned to this guy, glares at him, and politely says, "It's Valentine's Day!! Can't you just give her a break? Thanks!" The guy was speechless and hopefully embarrassed in front of his girlfriend (not to mention everyone else standing around), and Monica just turned and walked out of the restaurant. I looked around for a second and then said, "Well, I guess we're going," and followed my wife, giving her a big high five in the parking lot.

If you know Monica, this story will not surprise you one bit; if you don't know Monica, and are in foodservice, you have somebody on your side! Click below to see pics from our Valentine's Day.
