Some felt he was trying to “show off”, while another simply commented “insufferable”.

One viewer wrote: “He can’t take a phone call but you can sit there and record him. Makes sense.”

But Kelcey responded and clarified: “For the record I also had time to go to the bathroom, say hi to some friends I ran into and come back with him still on the phone.”

Another said: “Idk.. at least he made time for the date. If it’s a legit call shouldn’t be a big deal. Should have left the table though. Phones and dates don’t go.”
