Dating is awkward, but nothing is more anxiety-inducing than a first date. The most you can realistically hope for is a pleasant experience with someone you’ve never met, but sadly, that’s not always the way the cookie crumbles.
Anne Thériault, a Toronto-based writer, recently stumbled upon one of these nightmare scenarios while sitting in a coffee shop and did what any quick-witted, tech-literate person would do — she live-tweeted the whole thing.

“Watching a couple on what appears to be a terrible first coffee date at the table next to me,” reads the first tweet. “Dude is every precious self-involved writer.”
It just gets worse from there:
It’s truly incredible, and thankfully Toronto’s blogTO strung together the whole event in Storify, so you can read the entire exchange from Anne’s point of view without scrolling endlessly through a Twitter feed. The tweets quickly made the rounds after the live-tweet session concluded, eliciting the following priceless response from Thériault:
GUYS I HAVE SPENT YEARS WRITING THOUGHTFUL, WELL-RESEARCHED THINGS BUT MY LEGACY WILL CLEARLY BE LIVE-TWEETING A TERRIBLE DATE

She immediately clarified that she isn’t complaining. You can support Thériault on her Patreon account.
