The original poster (OP) shared a story about a dinner date with a guy named Michael at his favorite restaurant. Should couldn’t enjoy her meal without one item was willing to break restaurant rules to get it. This is the story of how OP embarrassed her date and likely ended the relationship.
She Went on a Date
OP and Michael went on their third date together and decided to have dinner out.
It Was Michael’s Favorite Place
Michael decided to take OP to one of his favorite restaurants which she referred to as a “hole in the wall Polish/Hungarian place.”
They Ordered Their Food
OP and Micael ordered their food and he ordered a sampler plate so that OP could try different things.
OP Loves Ranch Dressing
OP says there are very few things she doesn’t eat without ranch dressing. She feels like dipping food in ranch helps make things easier to eat so she always has it with her meals.
She Asked for Ranch
When the food arrived, OP asked for ranch dressing.
The Waiter Offered a Substitute
The waiter said they didn’t have any and offered to bring out a substitute which consisted of sour cream and dill sauces.
She Was Disappointed
OP tried the sauce but she wasn’t impressed. It didn’t taste the same as ranch dressing.
She Told Michael She Would Be Back
OP told her date Michael she would be right back. She took her wallet and left the restaurant.
She Went to a Store
OP saw a convenience store on the way to the restaurant and decided to go there to buy ranch dressing.
Michael Was Shocked
OP says Michael looked shocked but didn’t say anything and ate his food.
They Continued the Date
OP says the food was great and her and Michael were having a good conversation.
No Outside Food Was Allowed
The waiter came by and said that no outside food was allowed after seeing the bottle of ranch dressing.
She Argued with the Waiter
OP argued that dressing wasn’t outside food and the restaurant didn’t have any so she needed it to enjoy her meal.
She Put it in Her Car
OP says she didn’t want to ruin the evening so she took the ranch dressing to her car and came back.
Michael Was Upset
When they finished and were ready to leave, Michael thanked OP for coming but said it was “really off-putting” that she had to leave and go buy a bottle of dressing instead of just having one meal without it.
She Argued it Was the Restaurant’s Fault
OP argued that she wouldn’t have had to go buy a bottle of dressing had the restaurant had some like most do. Michael didn’t walk OP to her car and left.
She Told Her Roommate
OP went home and told her roommate about her date and Michael’s attitude about the situation. Her roommate informed her that it was poor etiquette and OP embarrassed Michael.
Will Michael Lose Interest?
Her roommate said that Michael was probably going to stop talk to OP. But OP doesn’t think what she did was that bad to warrant a break up because it was just one condiment, not an entire meal.
The Readers Respond
Unfortunately for OP, none of the readers of her post believe she was right in what she did during their date.
“YTA for leaving Michael and going to buy the ranch dressing, bringing it in the restaurant, arguing with the waiter, and being so oblivious to how immature and inappropriate this was. But good on you for giving Michael priceless insight into your priorities so he could nope on out after only three dates.”
How is She So Oblivious?
“You embarrassed Michael in one of his favorite places. You left your date to go and buy sauce, which wasn’t needed. You argued with the waiter while being totally and utterly wrong.
My biggest concerns however are:
How can you be so oblivious to not realizing you’re a jerk. And can you really not go one meal without ranch? If not, you have a clear problem and you need to change it ASAP. It’s a very unhealthy addiction or eating habit you have going on.”
It Was Immature
“The fact you have it with every meal is frankly horrifying, are you 6 years old?”
“Not being able to sit through a meal without a specific condiment is quite childish.”
“YTA and must be a literal child. Couldn’t even go without it so you had to LEAVE mid date and buy it, then argue with the waiter and embarrass your date. Icing on the cake is even your roommate says you were wrong for your actions. Bonus points for saying the restaurant needed ranch like a normal restaurant. News flash kid, a restaurant doesn’t need to have ranch especially when its a NON AMERICAN ETHNIC restaurant. Your’e embarrassing. Grow up.”

Unfortunately for OP, the sister-in-law (SIL) has been creating problems in OP’s life and now things have come to a head.
