One way to get a free meal

Josh took me out on a date last Friday. It was a surprise date, as he wouldn't tell me where we were going.

For dinner, he took me to Mongolian BBQ, however we ended up having our dinner on the house.

We got there and the hostess seated us... 5 minutes goes by... 10 minutes goes by as do several waitresses... another couple walks in and is seated behind us and has service within 2 minutes.

We wait a few more minutes...

Josh finally flags down a waitress and asks to speak with the manager. We explain to him how we've been sitting here with our menus for over 15minutes and waitresses keep coming by, yet no one has come to take our drinks or order, yet another couple comes in after us and has service immediately. He tells us he will take care of us, find our waiter, and will personally be making sure our needs are met.

Halfway through our meal, the waiter informs us that the manager said he will be paying for our meal. Sweet!!

After dinner Josh took me to see The Ugly Truth which just came out in theaters that night. It was pretty funny and I'm surprised Josh actually seemed to enjoy it too, as much as he had previously stated he didn't care to see it.

We came home after and had some time to ourselves and he made us some drinks too. It was a fun night! I like surprises!


Newlywed couple receives 24 toasters!

Claire and Stuart Linley had asked for cash or vouchers from their 160 guests, which they planned to put toward a honeymoon.
They first realized something was up when they received a pile of gifts all in the same shaped box.
When Mrs Linley began to open the presents she was bemused to find that each one was a Tesco white 2-slice toaster.
Then it emerged the "coincidence" was actually a joke conceived on Mr Linley's stag party in Ibiza.
The auto-electrician, 31, said: "The boys were asking me what I wanted as a wedding present, and I said either money or vouchers because I didn't want to end up with a million toasters.
"Then one of my friends took it upon himself to tell everyone to buy us a toaster.
"On the morning when we came to open our presents I knew something was going on as I had had about 15 text messages asking if I was having toast for breakfast."
The couple, who married at Howden Minster, East Yorkshire, last Saturday, have now returned 23 of the toasters, but decided to keep one.
Mrs Linley, 31, an estate agent, said: "When we went to open our presents and saw all the boxes were the same shape I thought, 'this is quite strange', and then we began to open them and it was toaster after toaster after toaster.
"It was hilarious really. Most of them were from Tesco and when we took them back to the store the staff couldn't stop laughing.
"We did make beans on toast for lunch when we got home though."
