Ah, Valentine’s Day! Supposedly the most romantic day of the year. However, it dumps a whole cluster of stress on our shoulders. Even if we feign we’re above all the consumerism, promotion, and cheesiness. It’s also one the most disaster-prone days of the year, as batch waiters who have determined these disasters firsthand can attest to.
Reddit user Hamsternoir turned to the online community and asked attendants to share these floors firsthand. We bring you some of the very best responses that will stimulate you chuckle, shy, and might even help you forestalled a danger or two. Scroll down, enjoy Bored Panda’s interrogation with Hamsternoir, upvote your fave Valentine’s Day cataclysm fibs, and share your own if you have any.
I’m not crying! I’m sweating through my hearts !!!
This is a cute story. Having to go somewhere “fancy” on Valentines day is not necessary in my opinion. As long as both parties enjoy each others busines, the meat, etc, anywhere can be a special for Valentine’s day. Wow, that owned IS a scumbag. Kudos to that awful server for moving that is beyond to conclude that a truly special night for the couple.
According to Hamsternoir, they’d been talking to their other half about some bad Valentine’s day events in the past and this inspired them to turn to Reddit and hear everyone else’s narratives. “Never thought it would take off the lane it did, but clearly there’s a lot of fibs needing to be told.”
According to the redditor, “Valentine’s Day has always positioned marries under pressure, especially if the relationship is young.”
“Now, with social media, the pressure to perform seems even higher with beings watching, ” they supplemented, spotlight that the pressure to do dreamy things on Valentine’s day and to discuss the matter with everyone on the internet is bigger now than before. In other commands, when we accompany _everybody_ going nuts about Valentine’s Day on social media, we can’t help but want to follow the crowd. It’s a very human instinct.
Poor guy , no one deserves to have their hopes vanquished like that. Kudos to you for being a friend in such dark hour! 😀

Hamsternoir told Bored Panda that there are some things that duets going on their first time on Valentine’s Day can do to reduce the pressure and to manage their hopes. “Don’t make things too seriously or expect the appointment to go as it was planned in your head.”
“It’s probably better exactly coming pizza and a bottle of something and then go out for a year that has personal entail like your wedding anniversary, it’ll be cheaper unless you got married on February 14 th! ” Those are some words of wise! It’s always better to have lower promises and intention up pleasantly surprised than being hyped up and hurtling down.
Uh, yuck. But then again, you can probably safely assume that strong feelings are involved if a person is THAT anxious.View More Replies …~ ATAGEND

Meanwhile, PsychCentral has some extra bits of admonition for Valentine’s Day. It’s vital that both partners have similar hopes for this day: if one of you’s passionately in love while the other is just starting to open up, you’re both at different stages of the relationship.
What’s more, you shouldn’t expect your partner to be a completely different person merely because it’s Valentine’s Day. Oh, and if you plan to propose on February the 14 th, become _absolutely_ sure that they’ll say “yes.” Otherwise, you’ll ruin all Valentine’s Days to come for yourself.

A full-on Adult Temper Tantrum
That happened to my husband with his boss many years ago. They were is necessary to stay in a hotel for business and had dinner there that night … valentine’s night. Roses and candles everywhere – though they declined the waiter’s invitation to light-headed the candle on their table.
While he nailed the disembark, his form was off — that’ll be at least. 20 off his value from the judges and will cost him the gold medalView More Replies …~ ATAGEND

Erm, you forgot to explain why you specified your whisker on fire.
Why the hell would “youre planning to” a fanciful valentine’s dinner just to break up with person? Break-ups are embarrassing enough by nature, so why would you intentionally do something that sets the high expectations for the future of the relationship extra high?View More Replies …~ ATAGEND

Why just why
Or perhaps don’t make her out at all. Why put up a whole show just to break up with person? Unless you’re both willing to become friends after that.:

This is starting to make me sad. Having your trust broken like that, plus your nature. And the teens who gotta meet their baby crying because their own father was an selfish jerk.
Now that’s a person with class. Wherever you are, my friend, know that karma will find you. And her. And you will both get what you deserve.

Wow. That being said … stress makes people do strange things, and knows that restaurants are stupidly traumatic. I hope the cook is ok now.
It’s crazy how two ppl in the same relationship has completely different know-hows. One is ready to marry the other while…the other person couldn’t imagine spending the remaining day with the other…sad.View More Replies …~ ATAGEND

WHY WOULD YOU TELL SOMEONE THAT YOU DISLOCATED YOUR SHOULDER THAT WAY? “Slipped in the shower” is PLENTY of information. Also, there are still few cock moves more dick move than stopping the ring after a rebuffed proposition. There are cases when you keep the right, sure — if you’re breaking off an commitment because the other person did something REALLY bad, there’s an justification that the ring remains yours; same with wedding doughnuts. If the other person is at fault, some people claim that you keep the ring as a succour medal. I don’t know if I agree or not, but I respect the position. But NOBODY says it’s okay to keep the ring WITHOUT the engagement.View More Replies …~ ATAGEND
Probably a hot glass straight from dish because it was a busy night. Then putting a frozen suck it can split the glass for whatever reason. It used to happen a lot when I waited tables and bartended. We would have to made frost in the glass to cool it down before computing the drink.
You ran at a athletics prohibit. Meaning no disrespect to sports rails, but … anyone who thinks that’s a lieu for a nostalgic dinner is now a divorce waiting to happen.
Great that she told her.

You mean waited?
I think we’re missing some info now … is he a widower? Divorced?
Worked at a high end restaurant in podunk Louisiana. This was the place for LSU alumni and etc. We have a Valentine’s day private defendant after closing hours. I am bussing the room around 1 am and rich person are THROWING down. Dozens of wine-coloured glasses, bottles, menu etc. Well this one lady was f *** ed up to the gills and thought it would be smart to attract a tablecloth off a table to look for her “insert drunken mutter”. Before i could stop her she rips it off, it smacks the foot, and glass and s ** t flys everywhere. She gets on her entrusts and knees and started furiously looking for her phone she lost in the process while wearing a little white dress. I looked on in fright and amaze. We immediately rounded her up and resolved the party.
Not a server, but a chef at a small( ish) diner. We were really busy( duh) last year and I was out curing bus some counters real quick. I heard a chap and gal sitting there, they asked for water so I got it for them. I came home and the I discover the chap say “So why the f *** do you have Tinder on your phone? ” Went back to the kitchen. My FoH manager asked me what happened and I said “What are you talking about? ” I guess the girl left rapidly while crying and the person followed shortly thereafter. They left$ 2 for the water, so that was nice.
Nothing very disreputable, but I’d say “Happy Valentine’s Day” pretty much to any pair that sit at my tables, occasionally one of them would say something like “we’re not dating”. Some of the times, the other person would contribute a watch that pretty much confirmed that they both had very different interpretations of what was going on.
There’s an incident of 30 Rock where they mention that “going to IKEA” is a big stress test in relationships. That has nothing on going to a eatery on the busiest epoches of the year, specially Mother’s Day, and Valentine’s( especially when it’s on a weekend ). I’d say 99% of the “disasters” I’ve consider have just been normal move of the mill publications where couples recognise they have different levels of patience, and person or persons certainly gets aggravated with the packed restaurant, and their time is ruined.
