  1. WOW! That waitress sounds like a bitch. I totally relate to this being a highly sensitive person as you know. I still need to read that book and lend it to you. Sensitivity is tough man. I’m pretty good at reading people most of the time but that comes with being in counseling.

    1. I need that book, for sure lol. And maybe some counseling as well…

      So then…it’s not normal for a waitress to say that/in that way? Lol. I thought my crazy was showing…

    Personally, I think we are often wrong about others and their intents. Give the server the benefit of the doubt that she was asking if you were on the same bill and leave it at that. It is easy to jump to be paranoid when you have experienced doubt from other people in the past, but I don’t think the majority of random people out there desire to hurt people they don’t know. I remind myself of this every time I find myself reading in to what people are saying/doing.

  3. Yeah, I’m actually pretty good at reading people, I think. Past experience has kind of proven me right on that. I’m also sensitive and I too tend to dwell internally on seemingly trivial moments for years at time. Wouldn’t it be great if we had access to our brain’s file system and could just go in and remove the folder with that deathly embarrassing moment from 20 years that no one but us actually remembers? Anyway, that waitress was, at best, really bad at her job and at worst, supremely rude. In my experience, wait staff assumes it’s the same bill unless you specifically tell them otherwise, so even if they do ask “on the same bill” that would be weird to me.
