A YOUNG couple is enjoying their restaurant date despite being surrounded by the miserable future that possibly awaits them.
Lucy Parry and James Bates are making the most of their romantic meal, even though they can see the grim repercussions of a successful relationship all around them.
The waiter tending to their table said: “It’s amazing, they’re acting as if they’re not having dinner in a scrapheap for the idea of romance.
“There’s only one married couple in here who’s having a conversation, and it’s an argument about recycling. Everyone else is idly scrolling through their phones. I passed one table where they were both on Tinder.
“Married diners are easy to spot because they have the sad energy of a bear chained up in a dilapidated zoo. In comparison these two are wild horses roaming free. It must be insulting for everyone else to see.”
Married diner Margaret Gerving said: “I hope for their sake they break up. Relationships start out fun, but soon you’re staring at an overpriced chicken Kiev and making small talk about how uncomfortable the chairs are.”
