Double Date Disaster.


Friday the 13th was a day that some believe is a very un-lucky day.
But I would rather think of it as a very lucky day and I will tell you why at the end. 

Stay tuned....


Brooke and I had a double date this past Friday night with a couple guys who hang out all the time, they might be besties but i'm not real sure.

Anywho, we made plans with these 2 fellas earlier in the week - confirmed Friday morning by deciding that going to see 21 Jump Street at 7:25 in Pearl would be a 'great idea.'



Sidenote: There are some code words here you may need to know (initial is not their real initial - used a different one just in case they ever read my blog):
My date = N
Brooke's date = D
Anything in a ( ) is what I'm thinking in my head, I don't actually say it.
Also, I am the type person that hates to have plans changed at the last minute - keep that in mind while reading.


All plans were set as I was driving home from work at 5 when I get a text from N that says: 
Call me. 
I hate those two words because 1) I hate talking on the phone and 2) I am not going to do what you say - sounded like a command.

So I don't write back right away and I continue driving home. 
I write back when I finally get home and I said: 

Me: Hey can you just text me what it is you needed to tell me; trying to get ready.

N: yeah baby (umm, baby? don't think so buddy)

N: Yall are going to meet us at crabs 
I don't even respond.

I text brooke and say 'we have to talk when I get to your house.'
I stopped for a second and tried to be rational...
If brooke and her date had planned dinner before, obviously I would go along with the group.

I get to Brooke's house and I ask her if they had planned dinner before.
She said, No i haven't heard from D since 9:30 this morning.



So let me get this straight:
These two boys decided they wanted to eat - change the plans completely - and not even ask us, they just TOLD us what WE were going to do with them. I don't think so, mister.



So here is how the next text messages went...

Me: I'm with brooke now; we want to go to the movies first and she doesn't want to eat at crabs either.

N: Wow. (already giving me attitude - not great)

N: So do y'all not want to hang out? I mean we are about to eat (so your already at restaurant and we aren't even ready?) why don't we meet after

Me: Because we have to get up early tomorrow so we aren't going to the late movie; this was the plan a few hours ago.

N: so yall going to movie then go home

Me: We are going to the 7:25 movie, not sure what we will do after.  What are y'all doing after y'all eat? 

N: call me. (once again, no)

N: we wanna chill with yall.



 **After this I am just annoyed.  I ask Brooke what she thinks we should do and we decide we are still going to our movie and we will meet them after to get it over with.**

So I text him back and said...
Me: We will meet yall after the movie, maybe at like Buffalo Wild Wings?
N: Okay sounds great.



During the movie, I leave my phone in my purse and forget about it.
Once the movie is over, I check my phone: 

2 text messages
4 missed calls

ABSOLUTELY ridiculous.

I send a text to N: We just got out of the movie.

He calls me 2 more times before I can even walk to my car.
In the car, I finally answer.



This is the conversation

Me: hello?
N: where you at?
Me: at the movies, i literally just got in my car.
N: (cuts me off) well are yall coming up here?
Me: Yes, we are on our way to Buffalo Wild Wings now.
N: uhh, no we are now at a different place, McB's..yall come over here instead.

I was so annoyed at this point that i said:
OOOO-kay.

N: what's your problem?
Me: My problem is, everytime I make plans to meet you somewhere today - you have changed those plans.
N: Well, I've just had a really rough week and I want to see you and blah blah bullsh* blah.
Me: okay, okay. well we will see yall soon
and I hung up in his face.



I literally put the phone in my lap, put my car in drive and then I see this on my phone:

N: ok c ya in a few
(pick the phone up and put it in my lap again)

N: Smile I am ready 2 c u
(same process)

N: :/



By this point, it is literally getting to be too much. Nobody has called my phone this many times since I bought my baby, Siri.


2 more phone calls and a text message before we even get out there.

I finally write back at 10:26 and said we just got out here and we are going in BWW because we are starving. Yall can come across the street and see us (which is how it should be anyway).

N: Call me asap.
N: D in jail.
Me: It's too loud in here, why is he in jail?
N: ugh, DUI.
Me: Are yall still across the street? How does someone get a DUI that fast?




NO response from him again until 2 am...
N: What a night.

I don't text him back.

11 am on Saturday...
N: Meltdown last night

I don't text him back.


11 am on Sunday...
N: He sends me a picture of a peice of paper of a DUI i guess.
N: D got DUI. 



I think I get that now - you've only told me 02483098509 times. 



So to end this crazy stalker phone caller from ever contacting me again I make this up and send this:

The CSpire customer that you are trying to reach no longer
accepts contact from this number.
Continued contact will result in charges
to your account of $1.99 per text.

Haven't heard from him again.

Now some of you might think: That was a terrible night and Friday the 13th is really unlucky.
But Brooke and I don't see it that way at all - it was truly a blessing in disguise. 
No girl should have to put up with that.

I feel it is my duty to take nights like this, and turn them into situations you girls can learn from without having to experience it, but in a very, witty way.
Just my little part of good I can do in the world.
I hope you enjoyed this blog post as much as I enjoyed writing it.



Moral of the story kids:
Go with your gut feeling and pray. 
I prayed Thursday night: "God, If you do not want me to waste my time with this person, please send me a sign."



Ask and you shall receive, people.

Amen.

  1. Omg. I'm pretty sure I know who this was with...and I was debating on warning you but I figured you might not believe me... Does N's (and I know N isnt his first name) last name start with a C? lol

  2. Haha...literally Lol'd at that. Unbelievable! Plan changers are so annoying, especially when they change as the original plan is happening.

    And if they were waiting for you two to get there why in the world were they driving somewhere? To change plans again?

    Good gracious. Blessing in disguise for sure!

  3. @Terri: ha ha, facebooking you now. :)

    @Anna - found out the next day, they were nowhere near BWW when we got there. Got the DUI miles away. Absolutely a blessing.

  4. Wow they both sound like great catches...not. That's so annoying how people change plans like that and just expect you to go along with them as if what they decide is law or something. I think it was a good thing that you didn't even end up seeing them. Haha can't even imagine how a date like that would have turned out! I did enjoy reading this though. Some people are just so ridiculous you have to wonder how they get by in life.

  5. Very much enjoyed reading this! Haha I hate when plans are changed, especially when the peerson doesn't care they changed it at all! So not worth the time and effort!

  6. Wow. I felt sick as I read this. This is why I hate the thought of dating! Hopefully, a good date will balance it all out! Sounds like you are well off without him.

  9. OMG, this is insane. I went on a match.com date once and the guy texted me as I was walking to our said destination, commanding me to pick a different spot. Needless to say, the date lasted 30 min and I never spoke to him again.

    What's up with asshole guys? Love the last bit - I'll have to try that some time! : )

  10. No clue how I found you in the blogging world, but girlfriend- this. is. hilarious!! I have had some horror dates myself and needless to say... I'm totally stealing your text idea! That is genius :) haha. It was definitely not meant to be. I keep telling myself that the right guy will come along when I least expect it, and until then- I will just keep laughing at my crazy first dates. Good luck to you!

  11. Hahaha. That is insane. Stories like that make me super glad I am married.

  12. Maybe two different interpretations of the word date! I thought a date was supposed to pick you up! He sounds like a jerk.

  13. Oh my God- this is SO funny but what's funnier (is that a word?) is that you made up a text to him from your phone company. Bless it. I'm so using that! Ps. he is an ass!
