Here's the rest of the story.
I said "Well, gee thanks, Roy" and left it at that. My coffee arrived and I drank it and continued the conversation with all of the table. Kendra, of course, knew what had happened and she said something to him - it wasn't direct enough for me to remember.
When the waiter returned to check on us, I asked for a quarter of the ticket and got out my credit card. I explained that I had to get home to pack for tonight (and seriously, I had set an alarm on MY phone prior to my arrival to tell Cinderella that she needed to leave the ball) so this only cut my evening short by about 15 minutes anyway. When the waiter returned with the check, Roy intercepted it. I then took out a twenty and slipped it beside my plate. Roy grabbed the twenty and stuffed it in my purse - and he said something about "making me mad and that he was paying for dinner". I said, "Thank you, Roy, that is very kind of you". I said my goodbyes to all, even giving Roy a nice-to-meet you and left.
My initial response of Gee thanks was out of my mouth before I knew it, and probably with some sarcasm. One banjo in my head was screaming that it wanted to go all Julia Sugarbaker on his Ray Don Ass, but I didn't. Another banjo wanted to flee immediately as somehow I allowed his comment to make me feel shame. The third banjo said that what he said was his karma and how I responded was mine. So overall, I was okay with how I handled it at the time.
The dueling banjos in my head were really trying to get worked up over this - but I couldn't really must enough desire for drama to get that fire started. Yes, I was stung, but I just came home mowed the lawn and packed my bags for Peaster and looked forward to the great weekend I was getting ready to embark upon. And I always ask myself the question "Would I want to be them?" In this case, no - I'd much rather have my weekend to look forward to than his/theirs. And my third banjo kept telling me that what other people think of me is none of my business and why in the world would I let someone I'd just met opinion of me give me one minutes pause. Taking the personal out of it - I really was amazed that that kind of behavior exists in anyone over 15 years old and it says a lot more about him than it does me.
I did get a couple of texts from Kendra and Valerie - to which I responded a couple of hours later that Roy just calls em as he sees em and left it at that. In a perfect world, his actions wouldn't have even pinged me, so I've got some more work in being able to immediately and completely shrug off situations like this.
So that's the rest of the story.
