Adam Howell was at an Olive Garden in Charlotte last night when he overheard a couple at a nearby table quarreling
Looking over, he couldn't help but admire how the disagreement was ultimately resolved.
"A grown ass man is mad at his girlfriend at Olive Garden & has made a menu fort," Howell tweeted.
Hundreds agreed, making his photo go viral.
Howell soon provided some follow-up, noting that the waitress eventually put the kibosh on the seemingly foolproof stratagem by taking the man's menus away.
"Once she took the menus, phones were out for the rest of the meal," Howell added.
He went on to acknowledge that the couple did exchange a few words towards the end of their meal, and that the man ultimately paid.
When some started to comment on the subject of the photo being a "fool," one tweep chimed in and asked, rhetorically, who the bigger fool was: "the fool or the other fool who’s also eating at Olive Garden taking pictures of fools?"
To which Howell replied, "My 6-year old likes their spaghetti, go easy on her ;)"
