In less then. . .

24 Hours the boys will be back in town. Amazing. We have almost made it. Yesterday Sara and I had a date. . .with each other. We figured we earned a treat after watching the kids for almost 9 days by ourselves so we went to the Melting Pot. My neighbor was kind enough to volunteer to stay at our house after we put them to bed. Sara and I got the kids to bed exactly on time and then zoomed away. We got some cheese and chocolate fondue and we were entertained/amazed/bewildered by our rude waiter, who didn't really seem to know what he was doing. He instead of putting the kirschwasser alcohol around the end of the bowl to burn the alcohol off he dumped it in the middle of the cheese and even managed to include an "Oops" after he dumped to much. When we asked him if it was possible to tone down the alcohol he replied saying that we were the ones who ordered it, he thinks its one of the worst fondues on the menu and there was really nothing he could do about it. Anyways, we got some free coffee out of the ordeal, basically we got it only because it was free, we really didn't even want it but it made us feel better. . .then Sara witnessed another customer yelling at our waiter demanding he get the manager "Right Now!" I don't think he was having a good night. . .he definitely wasn't having a good night after his tip from us. . .I don't think the $2 impressed him much. Overall we did have fun, got some entertainment and didn't have to deal with kids which was so nice.

Sorry to hear that the waiter was such a jerk! If he acted like that maybe he shouldn't have even gotten a tip. That is what Mr. Brett says you know- leave 25 cents just so they know. Glad to hear that you both had a night out together.
