Buffet Date

We went on a date at one of those buffet places; not exactly a fancy place, but I'm not picky. Anyway, we got there and he did not even pay for me. I was willing to let it slide, though I was a bit surprised being that he was the one that picked the time and restaurant. We went to get our food and he did not wait for me to go sit down. When I got to the table, he was already half finished. He got a huge plate of macaroni and cheese, nothing else. He inhaled it so fast; you would think he had not eaten in days. I tried to get him to talk, but he would only answer a quick, "Yes," or, "No." The only thing he did talk about was about a party he went to. He talked with food in his mouth, so he was spitting food everywhere. It was finally time to go home, but he wanted to stop off at this coffee shop. He told me that he did not want me to have to go out in the cold (it was Jan) and that he would buy me something. I waited for him in the car, thinking that things were looking up. After 15 minutes, he had not come back so I went in to see what was going on. He was leaning over the counter flirting with one of the employees. She looked like she was only 16 and he was 24. He saw me and said, "Oh yeah, can I get a hot chocolate?" I CLEARLY told him I wanted a peppermint mocha, but I just wanted the date to be over with, so I took the stupid hot chocolate. We eventually got out of there and I could not wait just to get home. He was driving and we stopped at a long stop light. That's when he unzipped his fly and asked me to "feel it!" After the way he acted, he expected me to get physical! I turned him down and have not seen him since.
