What Not to say/do on a date Part 6

Welcome to another edition of What Not to say/do on a Date. If you've missed any of the other editions you can find them here
This unforgettable first date happened at Uno's. If you've ever been to Uno's then you're going to know what I'm talking about. For those of you who haven't I'll explain it. At Uno's they have some booths that are made for 2 people only. Each side of the booth is only big enough for 1 person and that table in between isn't that big. Basically, it's a more intimate setting. 

The first date and I get seated at one of these booths. I had never been out on a date with this guy. We had mutual friends and had been set up by one. I had seen him around town and vise versa. I knew before the date what his profession was but to continue the chit chat I asked him about it. 

Me: "So I hear you're a police officer. That must be an exciting job."
Him: "Yeah sometimes it can be."
Me: "I'm sure you come in contact with all different kinds of people."
Him: "Oh yeah. Last summer I shot this guy and killed him. I had to sit with his body until the paramedics got there."

My instant thoughts:
Ummm......did you just throw out the fact that you shot someone and that they died?!?!

I understood that it's his job to do whatever needs to be done. However, I didn't feel that was something you should probably say on a first date and within the first 10 mins of said date.

Wow... I would have been a little creeped out, even if it was his job. That's just not something you want to hear on a first date.

I love when you do these posts! I know I don't always comment but they always make me laugh. :) & Oh the stories I could tell about a few first dates.. haha

Selma said...

omg, no way. Yes, you can at some point mention that but certainly not on the first date, and not like that. Wasn't there anything else he could have said?! Like, oh yeah, I had this one guy who didn't speak any English or something?! At least that would have been a bit cooler. ;)

Ashley Pizarro said...

Agreed. I think I would have come up with some smart ass comment after he said that or been really scared. ha! Hope that guy found someone who enjoyed those types of conversations!
