    Inspired by my friend who texted me from the bar she works at to say that some guy with a skullet asked her out. She told him she had a boyfriend, which wasn't true. But he's playing in the bar's house band so he'll be around lots. More digging by myself turned up the fact that dude was shorter than her AND as old as her dad. That will amuse me to no end tonight.

    I'll add my own embarassing attempt later, but lets hear some of your's.

    Ah, it must be time to tell the story of How I Left The Bitch Standing In Her Driveway.

    Car died a couple days in advance of a big date. Borrowed a friend's pickup truck; he had a nice truck in an era when most pickup trucks were not so nice.

    Went to pick her up in the truck. Knocked on her door, &c &c, and then we got out to her driveway --- she saw my friend's truck and immediately said, "Oh ... I didn't realize you had a truck."

    Now, this was not the tone of voice you're thinking of. In fact, you could well say there was a hint of disgust at the edges of her vocal cords. I responded with a hint of disgust of my own ...

    "If I had realized you're like that, I wouldn't have asked you for your phone number."

    And I drove away.

    Mine are not interesting, Tommy. They all involve guys with tats, bars and the phrase, "You're coming home with me tonight."

    Does someone remember the story about the guy who ripped a dollar bill to make a woman think he was using a condom?

    Back in college I go out as the third wheel with a friend to an ice rink. I see this one girl doing a few twirls and such with her friends, thought she was cute, so I figured I'd go up and try and say something sort of witty regarding her moves on skates. Except I skate up to them, try and stop, and POW, fall flat on my back on the ice before I could even finish what I was saying. I did get to talk for a minute but I was too embarassed. Afterwards they kept watching me walk out acting like they were waiting for me to go up to them again, but that was just not going to happen.
