Date night with your partner is supposed to be an opportunity for some quality time together.
But a mum claims her husband put his foot in it by saying something ‘inappropriate’ to their waitress which ‘mortified’ her – and then claimed it was ‘just a joke’.
She took to Mumsnet to vent about their date night – and it’s sparked a heated debate with other mums online who can’t agree if he stepped out of line.
She wrote: "At a restaurant with my [husband]…
"I have a large phone that always gets a lot of questions. The young waitress asked me about it and I replied that I was thinking of getting a new one as it was too big.
"My husband then pipes up with ‘well she is used to having big things in her hand’ the waitress seemed embarrassed
"I was mortified. I am quite an introvert private person anyway and this was too much for me.
"I told him this wasn’t appropriate and he barked at me that it was a joke and I need to grow up."
The post received comments from mums offering advice, and some agreed that it wasn’t an appropriate thing to say to a waitress at all.
One wrote: "Ewwwww! Sexual innuendos to a total stranger. Creep."
Another said: "It was inappropriate, but sounds like something a few men I know would say.
"They think they are hilarious, and when they are called out, and someone has a go at them, they come out with the ‘you have no sense of humour’ line!

A third wrote: "Christ, that’s some lack of self awareness there. What an utter t**t. I seriously would not be with someone like that, if he says that in a restaurant it’s indicative of much wider a**holeness.
"He doesn’t have a clue."
Not everyone was offended by his comment – and some of the other mums on the forum would have laughed and let it go.
One said: "I’d have laughed at that!" while another wrote: "It’s just a joke".
Another said: "That’s hilarious, actress to the bishop type thing. I love a bit of innuendo brightens my day (sic)."
One mum came up with a genius retort, writing: "You should have just made a joke about needing a microscope or something."
