My best friend from high school, Violet, was in town today with her man of the month. I love her, but I wish she would stop being such a slut and just pick one and stick with him. Anyway, it's not my place to judge her for her bad cases. Anyway, she and her new man, Alex(pronounced ah-LEKS, as he is one of those weird Quebecois Francophone things) wanted to go out to dinner with Thorsten and me. I love going out to dinner, so I was happy. Violet and ah-LEKS chose the restaurant. I wanted to go somewhere slightly but not too classy like the Keg or the Baton Rouge. I should have known better. Violet has always been a little on the white trash side, and she and ah-LEKS chose St Hubert. It is a casual place, rotisserie chicken, nothing really too expensive. It tastes good, but Violent and ah-LEKS were not dressed up at all. Violet was wearing jeans, fake Uggs, and a hoodie from Nipissing University. (I don't know who she thinks she's kidding with that. We all know she's not smart enough for university). ah-LEKS was dressed worse. He was wearing jeans, and a Duck Dynasty shirt that said "I'll split it three ways. 50-50." It was absolutely horrifying.
Now, I know St Hubert is not a fancy restaurant; it's casual dining. But Duck Dynasty shirts should not be allowed in general unless you're on a hunting trip, or shoveling cow manure on a farm. They have no place in public. I was expecting one of the waitresses to tell him he was not dressed appropriately, but none of them said anything. It did not seem to faze them in the least bit.
I, of course, was highly embarrassed. To make matters worse, ah-LEKS had one of those white trash French accents, and every second word out of his mouth was OUAIS OUAIS!!!
Now, Violet has packed on some pounds since high school, so it is understandable that she would choose a restaurant with all-you-can-eat coleslaw. She and ah-LEKS went through at least ten bowls each of the Creamy Coleslaw. Thorsten and I shared one bowl of the Oil and Vinegar one. I think the only reason we did not go to an actual buffet is because Violet is such a picky eater and will not eat Asian or Indian food.
Anyway, I did not see anyone I know, thankfully.
After they left, Thorsten bought me a bottle of wine from the LCBO and gave me a warm bath, so I feel better now. Yet I know I will have nightmares of that Duck Dynasty shirt tonight.
