Don’t make a scene!
Day 11… Your worst/funniest/most embarrassing date
Maybe I’m delusional, but I can only think of one bad thing I did on a date, which wasn’t show up. It was a blind date with a guy I met on the internet and I walked into Outback (where we agreed to meet) and he had been “coy” about telling me what he was going to wear (like “I’ll be wearing a white shirt and khakis”). “You have my picture, you should be able to find me.”
I walked around, only saw one guy that kinda looked like him but not really from the picture and walked back out to sit outside.
10 minutes later, some dude comes storming out and leaves. Whoops. I guess that was him from the angry email I got from him later that night. We didn’t try a second time.
But the one bad date that really was a date that sticks with me goes back to… way back when. Another guy I met online and I agreed to meet for a movie. We drove separate cars and when we got to the window, I only ordered one movie ticket as I figured we would go Dutch because I already knew I didn’t want to be obligated to this guy for even a McD’s cheeseburger after.
Well, dude threw a hissy fit. “I’m the guy! I’m supposed to pay! You should let me pay!!” And he’s all screaming and yelling and the poor girl behind the counter is looking at me like “Whaaaaaaa?”
I raised my hand, showed “2″, thumbed back at him and then walked inside. I barely talked to him after that.
This is a Jonnelle-story. It gets better…
After the movie, which wasn’t just on 11, it was about 97374032 decibels in there… we were chatting out in the parking lot and I was kinda deaf-ish. He asks, as compensation for my movie ticket, if I would be willing to pass out fliers around campus of his computer/web business. I thought I wasn’t quite hearing this right, but no! Because he was certain that college students would need his help and since I was also a student (at the time) , I could tell them what a great guy he was and help him get clients and stuff.
I took the fliers, got in my car and left. I threw them out weeks later when I cleaned out my car. Never heard from him again.
