“The Deer Hunter”

best of manners

This wasn’t a hunting expedition, at least that’s what my husband told me when I agreed to go with him. We were in the truck when we spotted a deer about ten yards from the dirt road we were on. Before I knew it, my husband had gotten his gun out and shot the doe while still sitting in the truck. I was horrified.

Aftermath: What he did was illegal and I lost a lot of respect for him that day. I also realized just how little he respected me because he wasn’t a bit concerned about how it made me feel witnessing the kill. We divorced a year later.

“Snap”

manners

He snapped his fingers at the extremely swamped bartender.

—Jer

Aftermath: This was merely a portent of the boorish and exceedingly rude behavior to come that night. After exchanging a horrified look with the bartender and mouthing “Sorry!” I hurried the date to its conclusion as quickly as possible.

“Just a Friend”

manners

It was over when we were out for the first time with my friends. She invited out a “friend” and proceeded to hang off his arm. I ditched her and her friend immediately, with the bar tab.

—Andy

Aftermath: She tried to contact me two days later to see if she could buy weed off a friend of mine. I let her know she had no class.

“Dirty downloads”

best of manners

We had been out on a few dates and I wanted him to meet my best friend and her boyfriend. We all decided to meet at a nice restaurant. Everything was going fine until he opened his phone and started showing my best friend all the porn he had downloaded.

—Jillian

Aftermath: It was over two weeks later.

He made fun of my friend for her hair loss. She was going through chemo at the time.
