Having dinner at a popular Italian bistro-style restaurant in my neighborhood, I was shocked by my friend’s behavior. When he picked me up at my apartment he used the bathroom. After ordering our dinner in the restaurant he used the restroom and then after the main course he returned to the restroom again. Needless to say, he didn’t make me feel special. I assumed the second and third time when he disappeared to relieve himself that he was checking his messages. Three times all in the course of a three hour span. This is not the first time he has left me seated a couple of times during a meal.
