Lettuce not do this ever again...

His ad made him sound sort of fun.After a few brief
emails, we agreed to meet in person.Coffee would
have been OK with me. But he invited me to lunch at
an upscale business lunch restaurant.

He told me he ate at this restaurant a few times a
week, and in fact, the waitress asked if he wanted his
"usual". It turned out his "usual" was not only an
appetizer, but the very cheapest appetizer on the menu
-- iceberg lettuce! And that was all he ordered!
Naturally I didn't want to seem greedy, so I just had
an appetizer, too.

He wasn't a bad person, but very boring, sort of an
iceberg lettuce personality. I used to be a waitress;
and all I could think about was how the serving staff
must hate having this guy come in and take up one of
their tables during the money part of the day.
