Now, I’m no fan of the Duggar family. I don’t care for their religious convictions or their politics. Then there was that whole “let’s sweep abuse under the rug” thing with Josh Duggar and his sisters. So I’m not one to defend them, AT ALL. But the latest drama with Jill Duggar and her husband Derick is so freaking stupid, I swear.
Jill Duggar recently celebrated a birthday, so she enjoyed a nice dinner out with Derick Dillard. The couple visited The Marketplace restaurant, which is apparently Jill’s favorite.
“Last night we celebrated Jill’s birthday by getting her free chocolate mess!” Sounds like a pretty standard birthday celebration, right? I mean, you go out to a restaurant, you tell them it’s your birthday, and 9 times out of 10, they will bring you some sort of free dessert. A slice of cake, a sundae, I’ve even gotten a banana split before! Literally EVERY restaurant does this, and if you aren’t taking advantage, I feel bad for you, son.
But fans and trolls couldn’t get over the fact that Derick mentioned it was free. I don’t think he picks up on social cues and etiquette too well, so maybe it was a tiny bit tacky to mention that.
One commenter wrote, “Key word free, lol”. Lots of people saying they don’t ever get their free birthday treat when they visit a restaurant on their birthday (your loss, dummies!). This comment did make me laugh, though: “I have to wonder how this place stays in business? There must be a Duggar there almost every day mooching a freebee.” Honestly, there are a lot of Duggars in Arkansas, they have like a birthday a week, LOL.
Jill Duggar didn’t seem at all bothered by the noise in the comment section. She even took the time to respond to a fan and give them some recommendations on what to try at the restaurant.
I would 100% eat all of that, and then ask for my free birthday sundae! Lighten up, people.
