I met Tom at a party. He was a bass player in a local band, and he invited me to a couple of his shows. I saw him play and was impressed, so when he asked me out on a date, I accepted.
He wanted me to meet him at his house, which I thought was a bad idea, so I offered to meet him at a sushi place near his house. He whined about it a little bit, but when he realized that I wasn't going to change my mind, he agreed.
We made it to the restaurant, sat down, and opened our menus. He spun his around to face me and said, "Okay, akami is tuna. Ebi is shrimp. Now, have you ever heard of yellowtail?"
I told him, "I've had sushi before. Coming here was my idea, remember?"
He frowned as if I was reminding him of something unpleasant and spun the menu back around to face himself. I followed up with, "But I appreciate you offering to help."
He ignored this.
Halfway through dinner, he asked, "So why the song and dance?"
"You know," he pointed around the restaurant, "Going out for sushi. Why?"
I stared at him. "This is a date, isn't it?"
He ignored this, too. I asked, "What's your problem?"
He said, "Most girls I bring over don't need to be taken out. They're happy just to come over."
If my jaw could have hit the floor, it would have. I said, "I'm not most girls."
He rolled his eyes and said, "That's obvious."
I finished the dinner withut saying much, and right after we left the restaurant, I went straight home.
No joke, the guy was brought up on some assault charge a month or so later.
