Seriously what is with people that work behind the counter?? If you hate your job don’t work here.
My husband walks up to the cookies guru kiosk at the farmers market type shop and the girl behind the counter does NOT get up and screams can I help you? My husband was close to scream back, Yeah can you get me a pastrami sandwich…. Is she serious???? All you do is sell cookies, get off your a$$!
I was waiting for the shuttle to pick me up and take me to the airport. When the shuttle arrived, a gentleman walked out and I was about to get on but the driver stops me and says, “can you wait a couple of minutes while I go and pick up someone that has been waiting at the hotel and I will be right back?” I was holding two bags in the cold and the door was already open to an empty shuttle. Was this guy serious? What is the reason that I can’t get on this shuttle right now, while he is here with the door open? What is the big deal if I get on right now and then he can go pick up the other person??? After a minute of arguing with him, he let me on the bus and did NOT help me with my bags.
When we arrived at the airport, the driver walked outside as if to help me step down, instead he watched me carry down my heavy bags and stuck his hand out for a tip once I got down. Again, is he serious? A TIP? FOR? Where do they breed these people?
This date was many, many years ago & it still makes me irritated. I was a young college student (20 yrs old) & had a crush on a very cute guy in one of my classes. After flirting with him for a while, he asked me out on a date. I was very excited & spent the whole afternoon deciding what to wear, doing my nails, hair, makeup…trying to look perfect for him. The evening got off to a poor start when he showed up late, and when I got into the car, he wasn’t alone, he brought his friends???? Then drove to a bar and I couldn’t get it because I wasn’t 21. So they all went in without me and I got stuck calling a cab. Really???????
The next time I ran into him, I was over 21 and he asked me out again. I thought of many ways how can I go out with him and make sure he can’t get it? lol
Seems like soooo forever ago….
This guy emailed me on MySpace asking me if I recall chatting with him a while ago on match.com and he wasn’t sure how we lost touch. I didn’t want to be rude and ignore him so I wrote him back.
“I do remember chatting briefly. People lose touch with online dating all the time. Sometimes there’s no connection what can you do. Take care.”
I think that was pretty clear that I wasn’t interested right? Apparently NOT! Because his response was, “so are you saying that you’re not interested in chatting? don’t want to be a bother if that’s the case…”
Is he seriously asking me that right now? Ok well I guess my email wasn’t clear so I tried again. “You’re not a bother. I’m just not interested in dating you.” Now that should do it right? Ehhh WRONG guess again?…. He wrote back. How does this guy still not get it????
“fair enough, but i’m just curious. how can you say that without communicating with me and getting to know me in the least bit?”
Why? Why is he doing this to himself? Am I supposed to be attracted to every picture that approaches me online? How much more clear can I be without being rude? Well a girl has to do what she has to do. I wrote him back and said, “You’re unattractive to me, you’re too short for me and the fact that you had to push me to this point clearly tells me that we are NOT a good match. I hope this answers your question on HOW? Needless to say, I had the last word.
Seriously that was a choice. Gross! My girlfriend went out on a date with a guy she met online and he seemed like a really great guy when they spoke on the phone a few times before they made plans to meet.
They met at a Sushi restaurant he suggested. Once seated she felt he was attractive and was excited to get to know him better but then he started grilling her about what are her none negotiable things when looking for a long term partner and he did have things that she wasn’t interested in but she didn’t want to be rude and run away and so they decided to order drinks and some rolls. As the full trey of sushi comes, he put his elbow on the table and scratched his head. And all she could see was dandruff came snowing down on the sushi. Where do these men come from?
Its 8:30pm on Sunday night and I was just getting ready for bed. I had a long weekend and I really wanted to unwind with my husband. I took a bath, I put a mask on my face to make it fresh, I had a cup of hot tea and really enjoyed my low key evening.
As I blow dry my hair and can’t hear a thing, I see my phone blinking with a new message. I stop to check my message and couldn’t believe who it was. A guy; of course who else would text this late on Sunday. No not booty call, but someone I dated 6 years ago almost to the day. Believe it or not, we met on the Hot or Not website. Is that even around anymore? I was always ranked #8 but I’m not bragging. Lol
Anyway we met January 2005 and dated on and off for 6 months. It was mostly off because he had commitment issues and I was too young and stupid to say enough is enough. Then after we broke up he would call and say how serious he is now, and I would say no it’s too late. I have heard that song over and over and it never panned out. Then a year later he called again trying to get back with me and that time I was dating someone else. I’ve said, NO and no and no and even lied saying I’m engaged and he still would not stop calling. Two more years went by and he called again and I’ve said numerous times to LOSE my number and tonight he proved that he still had it.
Six years later… Is he serious? You might be laughing asking why I have his number. But I don’t, unfortunately his text so much that I can’t help but recognize his number. How can that be??? I don’t even know what my own mothers phone number looks like.
He had a relationship question he texts. Gee what do I look like Dr. Laura? Okay, so I had to humor him and wrote back. The question was “I was dating a girl for two years, serious. Looking to get engaged and then she just called it quits without returning my phone calls, you think another guy?” Again is he serious.com? I don’t know anything about his relationship nor this girl and what really happened and I’m supposed to come up with some answer. Why do guys find random excuses just to see if we bite? Six years too long. Heck a week too long and I told him I was married. What will it take?
I was asked to post this story:
Your blog is hilarious; I had to post a story for you about this guy I was recently dating for a month. Let’s call him Bob. Bob and I met through a friend; she had set us up on a blind date. When he and I met I knew right away that this guy is different, he was tall, very good looking, and had dark hair, I couldn’t keep my eyes off him. We connected right away and went out on a few dates for about 2 months. He asked me to go away with him for a weekend and I thought this would be a great idea to see where this “relationship” is going. I was so into him that I for sure thought this would further our relationship.
Our first evening was awesome; we went out to dinner and then went to several bars and got a little drunk. When we came back to our hotel he put some moves on me and I thought 2 months is a long time and he didn’t seem too drunk. Needless to say the evening ended on a good note. And then in the morning I woke up to my feet being wet.
At first I thought I was dreaming but when I got out of bed and removed the cover off, there was a PUDDLE of pee on the bed. I couldn’t figure out how it got there. I woke Bob up letting him know that he’s sleeping in it and when he looked up at me, all he had for me was his laugh. How can a grown man pee in the bed? Is he serious? Needless to say I broke up with him.
Was a nightmare this morning. We thought we were lucky when the security guard told us we were priority and get to go to through the first class line, Score! When we got to the actual security line it wasn’t moving very fast but we met some lady that was behind us and she striker up a conversation with us and we learned she travels most of the year for pleasure. So once we all got to the end of the line it was time to choose the path of metal detectors.
A hasidic Jew (male) got in front of us and the lady decided to go to a different line and laughed saying good luck with that and challenged us to see who will get through faster. And we thought how slow can this be……
He first took off his coat but realized he was holding a brand new bottle of Sprite that hasn’t been open yet and then he had to stop and put the drink away except he put it down on the floor and did NOT throw it away. We wondered why, where is he going with that? It was a 16oz bottle when security only allows the small 4oz liquids to get through. Then he took off his coat, hat, got 2 bins for his laptop and shoes, then he picked up a bag to place on the belt and then another garment bag that he placed on the belt and did not move forward leaving us space for our things. As we wait for him to move forward he then proceeded to open the bottle if Sprite and starts to drink it since wasting it was not an option. As I always say, is he serious.com?????
I received an email on Yahoo personals by this very handsome guy. He was in his late 20’s, tall, fit and he had dark hair and brown eyes. His pictures were very attractive and it was hard to believe that he looks like that. We exchanged several emails and got to know each other a little. One day he emailed me with his personal email address because his membership was expiring and he was going to take a break from the site.
We exchanged a few more emails after that before he finally asked me out. I was so nervous and haven’t logged on to Yahoo personals in sometime that I decided to see if he has more picture on myspace (yup myspace was popular back then) to see if that is in fact the same good looking guy.
I immediately looked at his page and lucky for me the page was public for everyone to see. After surfing his page for a few minutes, I found an interesting surprise.
Status: In a RELATIONSHIP WTF?!?!???!? Ok so maybe it might be an error and he hasn’t corrected it since his past girlfriend, when I emailed him asking about it, he NEVER wrote me back. Is he serious? Dude, if you’re going to be a “player” at least LEARN how to play the game!
I had a date this weekend. I met him on Yahoo personals actually. Never tried this site before but thought maybe it would deliver a different pool of men. And believe me it did.
I was chatting with a pretty handsome man for about a week. I was a little hesitant because he said all the right things at the right times. I wasn’t born yesterday and thought he is just messing with me. Then again he did open up to me a little more then other guys I met. Unfortunately his mother passed away a few years back and he was really close with her. That showed to me that he was comfortable enough with me since he was able to share something that is important with me. So I thought maybe he can be different then again I can’t tell you enough how many times I’ve said that before.
He picked me up on Friday night and prepared me that he will be coming from work and wearing a suit. In that case I thought I would dress up and wear a dress. Besides it was Friday night and I was pretty excited to go out with this guy and I wanted to impress him.
When I opened my apartment door to greet him I was pleasantly surprised to see how good looking he was even in person. AND he brought me white tulips. I thought they were beautiful until he gave them to me and said, “They were my mothers’ favorite”. Ummm is he serious?
