Pet Peeve

{Photos by Sabrina; wearing Forever 21 tartan trousers, Alexander Wang booties, Chanel bag}

A few days ago I realized one of my date pet peeves: when the guy orders for me. To put it in context, the guy ordered me wine without asking if I wanted some or what type I like. To put it in reason, I'm not 5 nor illiterate and unless I ask, I know best what I like, and I am the one who has to consume it. I've been told that it's a self absorbed douche cultural thing. Whatever it is, it's as repulsive as Romney's talk on regular citizens in which today I say "who's unemployed now, byyatch!"

  3. Take that, Mitt!
    And those pants are incredible.
    And that guy was probably a douche.

  4. My boyfriend only orders for me after asking me exactly what I want and that doesn't bother me whatsoever. Now if he did so without even asking me what I wanted, we'd have problems!

  5. I think not be asked what you like or what you prefer is rude. A gentleman can order but he needs to ask what you prefer first. UGH.

    Anyway LOVE the pants and the jacket. Your pants remind me of my favorite plaid pants I had back in high school, wish I still had them...

  6. Jajajajaja!! I agree with you: who knows better what I want than myself?
    Anyway, love your look even if its not my style! I'm in love with your chanel purse :D

  7. I think it is a cultural thing, but I'm not into it either. Why order for someone when you don't really know them? And LOL on that Romney comment.

    ReplyDelete
  8. Haha, that is so annoying. It makes me feel like the "little woman" who can't do anything for herself.

  9. Calling douchy behavior a "cultural thing" is rarely a good excuse. This is off track, but I remember reading that when US diplomats have US military escorts in Saudi Arabia, we're not supposed to include female soldiers because it would be viewed as an insult in the local culture. And when we provide US military escorts to Saudi diplomats in the US, we not supposed to include female soldiers for the same reason. I know we kiss their behinds because they have oil, but when do their diplomats get to respect our culture???

    PS - He was hoping to get a few drinks into you so he would seem more sauve.

  10. I don't understand why they think it's ok to order for their dates, especially if you are just getting to know them! But in other news, I love those red pants.

  11. You are hilarious and I totally understand your feeling of having someone order for you. I actually find it a little rude. And yes to your comment about Romney, thank goodness he wasn't elected.

  15. i love your trouser they look fantastic!
    how rude is that guy! you are a lot more level headed than me- if soeone had ordered for me i would have walked stright out. my pet hate is when a date eats off my plate- its ok if i give them a little something to try but not to eat something when im still enjoying my meal becuase the moment their fork touches my food i dont want to eat it (only beaucause im a vegetarian and get really picky abut my food touching anything meaty). my ex repeativly done that to the point where i just chucked my food at him in a resturant as he thought it was funny i got so upset about touching my food and droppped a massive piece of chicken in my salad. (sorry for releasing that I just remembered it and got really angry)

  16. That's one of my pet peeves too, even though it's never happened to me before, haha. Love the look!

  31. hey girl,

    how are you? i've been with my current boyfriend since we were 13 (now 26), so i can't say i've ever been on a proper "dinner date" with someone to get to know, so i've never had this happen. however! if it was someone that didn't really know me, i'd be really annoyed. since my bf and i have been together a long time, sometimes we go on dinner dates now, and order for each other for fun, trying to guess at what the other would like.

    in the meantime- i absolutely love those pants. i've been looking for the perfect pair of plaid pants (really run lola run style) myself... you look great. nice photos, as well.

    i do hope you are doing well, dear. enjoy your weekend!

    xox, amber

  34. Haha! I hate it when that happens. Another example. My family still treats me like a child even though I am 25 and asks my mum questions about me when I am sitting next to her. Can you imagine? ;-)
    I love your vibrant look. Especially the beautiful smile you're wearing!

    Love,

  67. Huge props for turning plaid and jean into a non-lumberjack looks somehow...

    Hmm...yeah, I'm particular about what I eat so I would hate it if someone ordered for me. That said, it's never been a problem because I order so fast and so much (I'm a 'sampler') they can never beat me to it ehehhe
