What Not to say/do on a date Part 10

That's right! It's back! I haven't posted one of these since June and this one is more than worthy of sharing. If you've missed any of the previous segments, you can find them here. I might add that yes... all of these awful and horrible things have happened to me while being on dates. 

This summer my friends and I were fortunate enough to be able to all gather and head out to the lake together. The first time we were at the lake together I was in a relationship and was only looking to have a good time with friends. While there I came across this cute guy who was working at the docks. I didn't think anything of it except the fact that he was cute. Once we left the lake that day, he never entered my thoughts again. 

Flash forward to the end of the summer and my friends and I head out to the lake again. This time, the only difference was that I was single. And guess who we saw?!? Yep, that's right the same cute guy from before. 

All day we were out on the boat, had a good time and as we came back to the docks there he was again. One of my best friends, Kristin, God love her instantly started grilling him with questions. Yelling them from the boat.  

Kristin: "Hey! Are you single?"
Dude: "Yeah."
Kristin: "Well remember our friend that was with us last time? She's single but she doesn't live in town. And then there's our friend here who's single."
Dude: "Um...ok"
Kristin:"You got a car?"
Dude:" Yes..."

At this point she looks at me and goes, "He has a job, a car and he's single. There ya go"

I think my face was 5 shades of red. We get off the boat and I proceed to go change. Kristin stayed behind and gave him my number. Later that night, the lake guy starts texting me. At first I thought it was funny and then the bombs started dropping. 

First of all he was 22. I'm 26. 
Second, he's 22 with 3 kids under the age of 3.
Third, he had the worst grammar and spelling I've ever seen in my life. (yes, I judge people on their spelling). 

So moral of this story, do not yell from a boat at a random guy that your friend thinks is cute. You'll get more surprises that you though you would.

No wonder he has a car and a job. He's got 3 kids!!!! I can't fathom having 3 kids at 22. I don't blame you for the spelling/grammar thing. It drives me nuts too.

Kelsey Claire said...

Hmmmm.. What people leave out! Love it. Well, I enjoyed the story, but I wish it didn't happen to you.

ABW said...

Wow, sounds like he has really been working it, and not just at a job!

I didn't even have one kid at 22, I know I wasn't ready!

Krysten @ Why Girls Are Weird said...

I totally judge people based on their spelling and grammar too lol.

Selma @ Crazy Little World Of Mine said...

Oh my...3 kids under the age of 3 and he's only 22? Damn. My favorite guy ever. hahaha. Kidding. IT was such a good call to walk away from that guy. :)

Happy Sunday.

Just Plain Tired said...

Wow, 22 and three kids already. This guy apparently had a fondness for women. ;) You probably made the right decision to pass on this one.

Brittany Ann said...

I judge people on the grammar, too. And it sounds like that was a good decision!

International Woman of Mystery said...

Being 22 is not bad. But with 3 kids!!! Boy was busy!

And it's totally ok to judge people on their gramar - it's kind of important if you are someone who writes and has mastered the English language. ;)

Beauty fades, but dumb is forever.

My sister was driving from work the other day and heard that there had been an accident and a 17 year old father of three had died. She thought that the news should have been about how an 17 year old can already be a father of three.

Kids having kids...

Geez, I sound like an old lady! ;)

JMJE said...

Ha, Wow. I'm glad you just texted instead of having to go on a full date with him.
