The Internal Complaint
October 27, 2009 by admncc
I’m fighting a little bit of a cold, so this post will be short, sweet and to the point. I thought it would be amusing to poke some fun at ourselves today. So with that being said, here are the topics:
Your worst date ever – I think bad date stories are very entertaining. And luckily, I don’t have too many to share. But one in particular involves a local celebrity of sorts. I once went on date with a woman who works on-the-air for a popular radio station. It is easy to summarize our date – she talked. From the second I picked her up, she talked. She talked in the car, she talked through dinner, she talked through the movie and she talked the entire way home. I couldn’t get a single word in and she didn’t take a breath. She was already working in radio at that point, and now I can see why.
Back in the day, before Match.com existed, people used to respond to newspaper personal ads. I remember going on a blind date through one of those, only to realize upon seeing the woman that I had previously interviewed (and rejected) her for a job.
The stupidest (or most embarrassing) thing you’ve ever done – my list is short, yet distinguished.
When I was in high school, I was driving three of my other buddies to play hockey and we were in a car accident. We were fine and it wasn’t my fault. But my car was totaled. My dad later drove each guy home and we explained to their parents what had happened. At one house, the mom said, “Was anyone in the other car hurt.” I jokingly said, “One died.” I said this not remembering for that split-second that one of her daughters had been killed in car accident several years earlier. The second I said it, I realized what I had done. Bless her heart; she realized and ignored my joke and didn’t even flinch…
I went golfing a number of years ago with my buddies. In between rounds, we stopped in to the clubhouse for a drink. We walked up to the counter and a gorgeous woman came up to take our order. We placed our order and she walked away. I then turned to my buddies and made a very piggish comment about the woman (the type of comment you’d expect from a young and single guy who saw a very good looking female in front of him). As I laughed and turned back around, she was standing there with her arms crossed glaring at me. Ouch! I couldn’t even respond…
So as I sit here trying not to overuse my hand sanitizer, I hope everyone enjoys the rest of their week. My Halloween costume this year is Michael Jackson. It came with a wig, sunglasses, a surgical mask and a glitter glove!
