Ex Why

Story Sent in by Vivian:

I made it to the restaurant first. When Richard arrived and saw me, he clapped his hands together and laughed. He said, "You look just like Barbara."


"My ex. What're you drinking?"

"Uh... I was going to order a glass of Cabernet."

Richard called the waitress over and said, "Two glasses of Chardonnay." When she left he said, "Barb always drank Chardonnay."

I said, "Well... I'm not Barbara."

He gave me a look like I was nuts. He said, "I know that! Are you... what are you saying? That I can't tell the difference between you and my skanky ex?"

My turn to return that you're-clearly-nuts look. "No! What the hell are you talking about?"

He stood and said, "Fine. Enjoy your night," and left.

The waitress soon returned with two glasses of Chardonnay. I kept one and drank it down. Lord knows I needed it after that.


  1. OP, Barb wouldn't have drank that wine. You should know that.

  2. Seriously Richard, how skanky could Barb have been ordering chardonnay? Besides, OP is nothing like Barb. She doesn't have a drinking problem.

  3. By drinking that Chardonnay you only just prove how right he was that you were in fact his ex.
