Sorry, Not in Service.

Wednesday, June 08, 2005

Ok, so make that a big 0 for 2.

I called up the Fine Lass last night. Again a female answered, but this time is was just a nice recorded operator saying "We're sorry, the number ###-###-#### is not in service. If you believe you received this message in error, please hang up and try again."

Yes, there is some chance that I wasn't totally sober and hit the wrong button, but I doubt it.

What's the deal with giving out fake or wrong numbers? Just don't give the damn thing out if you don't want a call. Be a big girl. Either say no thanks, or at least give out the number to the Rejection Hotline!

I hate the whole be nice now and have someone else give the rejection later deal.

Worst I've had was at my favorite local pub, I bought a round of shots for all of my friends, and a couple cute girls on the other side of the bar. They accepted the shots and a little while later I went over and chatted with them for maybe five minutes. They were asking the questions, carrying the conversation. Twenty minutes later I stopped by again, but this time the bartender interrupted.

"Ummm, Nick. You need to stop talking to them. They complained that you're bothering them."

"Are you serious???"

"Yeah man, if I didn't know ya, I'd have to ask you to leave right now."

"Dude, that's fucked up."

"Hey man, nothing I can do."

I understand the policy. The owner of the place is a woman, being protective of the female patrons. But seriously, THEY carry the convo, then tell the bartender I'M bothering them? Just tell me to piss off and I'd be fine with that. Tell me you're having a girls night. Fine. But to take the shots, actively talk with me, then tell the bartender I'm bothering them? Come on.

Have some respect, at least be honest with the person.

And don't give me the crap about being nice by letting them think they have a number or whatever. That's just being cruel.

This is why I keep dating Conservative Girl. Trying to get a date nowadays just friggin sucks.

Man, women just don't like to end things. They hate it.

They'd rather give you a fake number than toss up a rejection, it's easier on both parties that way.

It's like when us guys get her number, tell her "I'll call soon", and never call her again.

Don't worry about not being able to get a date. Just when you least expect it, something amazing will fall right into your lap (preferably not Jessica Alba because that bitch is MINE)

I'm ashamed about some of the behaviour stemming from members of my sex these days.

On behalf of all females, I apologise.

you know that is one thing I am curious about. If a guy you don't know or don't care for buys you a drink, how do you politely turn it down without offending the guy?

Nick maybe she wrote down the wrong number? or you wrote it down wrong? that can be possiblity too right ?

I think it is time to find a new place to meet girls :P
