After explicitly asking his wife if she wanted dessert, to which she clearly said no, Matt Willis, 32, was taken aback when his wife instructed the waiter to bring them two spoons for the dessert.
“I don’t want a full dessert, I’ll just have some of yours,” said his wife, Alice, 33.
Unsure as to what just happened, Matt was convinced he both asked his wife if she wanted dessert and heard her say no.
“She may not have wanted dessert, but I wanted all of mine,” said a still hungry Matt. “Slices of cake and scoops of ice cream aren’t huge in restaurants, and I was hungry.”
After the waiter brought it out, and Alice dove straight in and took the first bite, Matt’s newest fear came true. “Mmm, that’s really nice,” said Alice, as she dug her spoon in for a second bite.
Having learned his lesson, Matt now has instigated a dessert ordering process with his wife. “I now read out every dessert and gauge her reaction. If she doesn’t like it, it means I’ll get it all too myself.”
Having given his new plan a run on their latest date night, Matt was like a cat with the cream until Alice lent over and took his spoon to try a dessert she said she didn’t want and didn’t like. Better luck next time, Matt.
