Dump Him or Her: The Last Supper
For the record, I don’t think it’s appropriate to dump someone in arestaurant. It’s actually the worst place to do it, because once the moment of dumping happens, there are usually tears, harsh words, and hasty exits. It’s humiliating, and therefore tacky. Here are a few ideas about where to go instead. And yes, there’s booze handy.
