I was a Horrible Friend

Back in college I had a friend named Alex. He was my best friend and we had a lot of fun together. The problem was, I was an asshole. The other problem was, Alex was homophobic. I messed with Alex all the time as any asshole friend would feel compelled to do.

One time we were out somewhat late at night and found a diner off the side of the road. We sat down to get some burgers and fries and the waiter came up. Our waiter was clearly homosexual and while quite nice, I could see Alex getting a little uncomfortable. Nonetheless we ordered and everything was going well up until the point I started flirting with our waiter. It's important to note that I'm in no way gay, okay, perhaps I have some fashion sense but as far as being homosexual: not guilty. Nonetheless, I flirted with our waiter throughout our time there and got progressively more aggressive until our meal came to an end.

I did all kinds of weird shit in front of Alex so he didn't think anything of it. At the end of the meal I told Sean I'd get the check and I'll be out shortly. He went to the car. I wanted to be alone for this little note I wrote on the check to the waiter. I wrote:

You are amazing, call me soon: 407.555.5555 - Alex


Of course the phone number was Alex's and I'm sure he would not have approved. Nonetheless, I never did ask him how that call went but I'm sure it was fabulous.
