John was quick to protest, reaching one hand out to fend away Veronica's card while the other stuffed the insurance ad into the inside pocket of his jacket.
"Nono, I've got it, Vee. You've got a lot goin' on. Takin' care of dad's not, uh... it's not cheap, I know." Dropping the facade didn't feel quite right in the presence of the waitress, even if the creeper at the bar seemed distracted. For that matter, he wasn't the only one, as the girl in the red dress caught Blake's eye for an unsuitably long time before returning to look at the waitress not wanting to make a commitment.
John blinked in the lulled moment before realizing his mistake. "Oh, uh, hold on." A smile to cover and he went about extracting some cash from his wallet and handing it off. "Keep the change." For whatever reason, it seemed to be enough for the waitress who shrugged at Veronica and disappeared to square everything up.
Another waning glance and the girl at the bar entertaining Barney and Blake shifts in his seat. "Sorry, that was— Didn't want to make things weird, but— Yeah, yeah, that guy definitely gives off those— those creep vibes. Glad to be of service."
