Where’s Your Man At Tonight?

Chick comes up to me, orders a drink, I say, sure. Where’s your man at tonight? I’m buddy’s with her boyfriend. She says, I dunno, and smiles. Oh shit, here we go. The dreaded, ask a person where’s the other person they don’t know cause they just broke up….thing.

I have to admit, I like the awkwardness of the dance you have to play when they tell you subtly/not-so subtly that they’re no longer seeing the person you’ve just asked about.

I just play it dumb, as if I’m just like, ho hum huh guess they just don’t know what the person’s doing right now.  Instead of being like, ohhhh, I’m sorry. Is everything ok?

From my heart to yours,

Clint Curtis. Bartender.
