Everyone has at least one awkward date story. They range in shades of embarrassment  but this one ranks toward the top.

A couple out to eat at an Olive Garden in North Carolina apparently weren't having the best experience, as the man built a wall of menus to block his view of his date while she sat awkwardly wasting time on her phone. The entire scene was captured by fellow diner Adam Howell on his Twitter account, who tweeted this photo, with the caption "A grown ass man is mad at his girlfriend at Olive Garden & has made a menu fort"
