Behaving Badly in front of Mother

The first time I met my ex boyfriend's mother, he had taken us out to a steak house for her birthday. I liked his mom and she seemed very pleasant. Throughout the dinner, my ex was defensive and rude, and I didn't like it. At one point, his mom and I were discussing how much we both liked cheese and he blurted out to his mom, "And I'm going to melt cheese on her tummy and lick it off." Needless to say, his mom and I were both totally embarrassed. It was at that point that I decided to dump him.
