A woman embarked on a journey to Mexico to attend a friend’s wedding at a fancy all-inclusive resort. The trip included a mix of planned group activities and opportunities for guests to explore on their own, but one of these activities would cause a dispute that no one could have predicted.
A Memorable Dining Experience
One of the planned group events was a dinner reservation at a picturesque restaurant within the resort. The ambiance was delightful, and the service was impeccable, setting the stage for a memorable evening.
The Unexpected Potato Predicament
However, the meal took an unexpected turn when the best man at the wedding expressed his aversion to potatoes. “He wasn’t allergic, potatoes did not take out his parents in a dark alley, and he hasn’t sworn to avenge them”, laughed the woman.
The woman, fluent in Spanish, offered to help by conveying the best man’s request to the waiter. It was a straightforward task – please refrain from serving potatoes to the best man.
Unfortunately, despite the clear request, a plate of potatoes found its way to the best man’s table. It seemed like an innocent mistake, but it triggered an unexpected reaction.
A Vocal Protest
The best man was not content to silently accept the unwanted potatoes. Instead, he loudly vocalized his displeasure. “He would not shut up about it”, remembered the woman. “He pointed out to everyone at our table that he had been served a starchy tuber against his will. Other tables were watching him and listening to him getting upset about the potatoes.”
A Starchy Standoff
Even though the best man continued to eat the rest of his meal, he couldn’t let go of the potato issue. The situation escalated as he persevered in his rant about the undesired potatoes.
Taking Matters into Her Own Hands
Growing increasingly frustrated with the escalating drama, the woman decided to take a bold step. She reached across the table, seized the offending potatoes with her hand, and transferred them onto her own plate. Without hesitation, she began to eat them.
A Stunned Reaction
The best man sat there in stunned silence, clearly not anticipating such a bold move. After a moment of disbelief, he abruptly rose from the table and left for his suite, leaving behind a trail of bewildered onlookers.
For the remainder of their stay in Mexico, the best man avoided any interactions with the woman, choosing instead to share his version of the potato incident with other guests. He portrayed her as an inconsiderate individual who had acted in an “unladylike” manner, which was a very old-fashioned and peculiar opinion.
Upon returning from Mexico, the woman faced a dilemma. Her friend, the bride, expressed a desire for her to apologize for causing a scene over the potatoes, as it had created unnecessary drama during the wedding festivities. However, the woman had found the situation amusing and was shocked that her actions had caused such controversy.
Telling Her Story
The woman headed online and wrote up her story, interested to hear the views of others. “You’re the hero we didn’t know we needed”, joked one amused reader. “But yes, you took away what he really wanted: to play the victim and whine like a child. Once that opportunity was gone, he had no reason to stay so he left.”
A Problem Solver
Other readers commented on how the man had been acting immaturely, storming off with embarrassment. “You removed the problem (hilariously)”, one commenter stated. “What’s the problem? Oh, he realized how easy it was it to just… remove the potatoes and couldn’t take the embarrassment. Or talking about the potatoes was the only thing he had to talk about”.
Almost everyone found the woman’s story hilarious, which led to an onslaught of potato puns in the comment section. “Don’t worry about it; this is small potatoes”, reassured one comedian.
“It’s great that you got to the “root” of the matter”, laughed another.
