5. Bad Manners

A: My girlfriend's mom got mad at me at the dinner table.

B: Why was that?

A: I sprinkled salt and pepper on the food before I tasted it.

B: What's the matter with that?

A: Her mom is a great cook.

B: So, a little salt and pepper never hurt anything.

A: It hurt her feelings.

B: Oh.

A: I apologized to her, but I could tell she was still upset.

B: Maybe you shouldn't eat there again.

A: I'm sure everything will be okay in a day or two.

B: It's your girlfriend's fault. She should have warned you.
