33 Valentine’s Days That Cupid Threw A Very Large Wrench In

We get it. Valentine’s Day is a made-up holiday about consumerism and displays of affection. And yes, there are plenty of badass holidays we’d rather have on the calendar, but we’re stuck with Cupid’s crap until he’s finally banned for public indecency. In the meantime, people are still attempting to use this one day of the year to declare their fondness for whomever they’re currently romantically involved with, occasionally to disastrous results. Just ask the guy who was on a Valentine’s Day date that got interrupted by the girl’s actual boyfriend who had been sitting at the bar the whole time. There are no winners in that situation. 

Redditors have opened up about the times Cupid was nowhere to be found, and we gotta hope everyone recovered from these situations — especially the guy who practiced his backflip for a week straight.

After x-rays we found it had worked its way up his desending colon and lodged itself at the bend going into his transverse colon. When it was pulled out from surgery, the vibrator was still running wide open. ... 5.6k
decafff 0 5y On my way to see my girlfriend, I stopped off to get a rose, as per tradition. When I was paying I found out I could buy two for the same price so I thought hey why not! Turns out in the country she is from, presenting someone with double roses is apparently something only done at funerals, so instead of a traditional romantic gesture I'd actually given her some death flowers...oops...luckily she saw the funny side after a few quizzical looks ... 1.2k

A guy walks in and sits at the bar by himself, looking pretty down. Не asked for a whiskey, so I poured it, told him it was on the house because he looked like he needed it. Не proceeds to tell me his story: he had come to the city to surprise his girlfriend for Valentines (about a 5 hr bus trip between cities) and he sure surprised her. She was in
shepard_pie Зу So, I had some guy who couldn't get the concept of ravioli. Не kept asking if we hollowed out a spaghetti (his words) and stuffed it with lobster. I said no, but we did use pasta. Не kept reiterating that he wanted a pasta. It finally dawned on me, Sir, do you think that spaghetti is the Italian word for pasta? His date was clearly unimpressed, but I finally get him down for an order of Lobster Ravioli, even though he still seemed unaware of what he was actually ordering. After he got his food, ate one of

Kara_S Зу I worked at a fine dining restaurant years ago )-- a middle aged guy comes up to me, hands me a gorgeous sapphire and diamond ring - - just gorgeous - - and asks me to have the pastry chef include it with his companion's dessert. The chef found beautiful blooms to decorate her dessert plate and placed the ring in the middle of one. She saw the ring, took it out of the flower, and placed it on the table. Then, she picked up her fork and started to eat her dessert without saying anything at all. The ring must have been an
venustas 4y I was working as a waitress in a Sushi restaurant and Valentine's Day was an all-hands-on-deck shift.

She looks directly at her boyfriend and states, yes I'm allergic to fish and shellfish. Then looks over at me very sad. I made sure every aspect

Weisskopf . . 7y My (then) girlfriend and I met at a Wendy's, which was being torn down for remodeling.
