Local Chef Gets Dumped By Text Message
Ladies—and gentlemen—you take your chances when you date a chef.
They work loooooong hours, sleep a lot when they're off the clock, and can get pretty moody, says one chef at a popular Wicker Park restaurant who suddenly found himself single again over the weekend.
His girlfriend of several months got fed up and after not getting the response she wanted after wishing him a "Happy Three-Month Anniversary," she promptly dumped him by a series of text messages:
"I'm sorry for what I'm about to do but when will I have a chance to see you and do this in person. You're too busy for a girlfriend.
"I know what I was getting into dating a chef, but even I had no idea it would be like this. Sometimes you make me feel like I'm the only one in the room and other times I feel like I'm just another one of your groupies.
"Again I wish I could see you and do this in person, but when do I know you'd make time for me. I really wanted this to work but where would it go. Again I'm sorry, I've been thinking about it all day."
His response: "You kids and your phones now a days."
