In her TikTok “story time” she talks about “beefing” with her restaurant waiter’s girlfriend after leaving a positive Yelp review for his service. Only twenty minutes later, she got a message from his girlfriend.
“So we were all just at a restaurant and the waiter asked all of us to write a review on Yelp and mention his name in it,” says Antonia. “So I did, it was pretty funny, I wrote ‘Thank you, Ira our king’. But then I get a message on Yelp twenty minutes later.”
She shared a screenshot of the review, which was effusive, but not that strange if you are familiar with youthful slang. Everyone is king this, queen that. It doesn’t seem too suggestive to me:
“Love the atmosphere. Pretty good drinks, nice food menu. Ira? My king. Love you. Xoxo,” she wrote.
Well, I guess the love you and xoxo part are a bit suggestive. At least enough to catch his girlfriend’s eye, because Ira’s girlfriend is very much on the Yelp pulse. She must have seen it right away.
“I saw your review for my boyfriend Ira and I don’t really appreciate what you said calling him your king etc,” she wrote to Antonia. “I don’t know if he gave you some kind of impression or was flirting etc but I’d like to know. If not, then if you don’t mind editing the review or writing a new one that would be great. Thank you.”
Shockingly, Antonia responded to this message with reassurance instead of ignoring her forever, telling her there was “nothing to worry about” and that the waiters had asked people to leave reviews because they were having a competition to see who could get the most.
“It wasn’t about writing one, it’s about how it was written and perceived,” the girlfriend answered. “But if it’s nothing, I apologize and enjoy the rest of your night.”
Antonia just replied “you too,” but in the video, she had more to say.
“This is the rest of our conversation, I didn’t want to be like you’re f-cking crazy,” she continued. “Imagine going on Yelp to look at your boyfriend’s restaurant and messaging someone from a review within 20 minutes.”
So, was Antonia flirting too heavily with King Ira? Or should his girlfriend get some hobbies that don’t involve cyberstalking her lover? Maybe it’s both.
