So... a stranger asked me on a date | LOVELY LITTLE RANTS

So... a stranger asked me on a date





Hoodie: c/o Wren and Ivory

Ok SO a lot of you couldn't relate with the whole "100 degrees in October" thing so I decided to be fair about fall clothes. I got this hoodie from Wren + Ivory that worked well in Utah but I won't be able to wear it much in Arizona for a few more weeks. Obviously I am one to wear it anyways and suffer the heat for a sec, but beauty is pain, right? Feel free to join my pity party, all are invited!! This jacket isn't super thick which makes it pretty perfect for Arizona winters! Plus floral. FLORAL. That is all. Oh also, I am really good at not looking at the camera, apparently.

Ok so onto the title. Oh man, YESTERDAY WAS THE WEIRDEST DAY OF MY LIFE. Besides the woman who came into my work to borrow the phone FOR 30 MINUTES and made up 30 different stories about why she needed the phone, I got asked on a date.

First things first, though. A lady who was clearly disheveled walked in, set down her 5 purses/bags, and walked up to my desk. She pushed her hair out of her face and set her arms on the desk before she started her story. Also, she would only refer to herself as we and we're...
"Is this a construction company? We're with a construction company and I was just at the MVD and I had a truck and I paid in full; $10,000!! And they took it away and so I tried to take the bus and I have a bus pass and they kicked me off and that's a felony and I need to call them and complain so the driver can go to jail."

WHAT?? (trust me I was just nodding my head and probably looking confused as she rambled on about whatever she was talking about.)

"I just really need a phone to call otherwise I'll forget to do it, I understand you're a business but can I please just use your phone really quick? They took my truck that I already paid $10,000 for!! Paid in full!!!"

I didn't argue (because let's be honest, how would I argue with anything she said? It was literal nonsense.)

Between her chatter and phone calls (where she was not very quiet about her long list of complaints) someone came in to pick up a check.

The lady finally finished up her 30 minute rant and ran outside to catch the bus (I was REALLY hoping they would let her on)

 Shortly after she left, someone called and the first thing they say is "Is this the beautiful blonde who was sitting at the front desk?" I answered as awkwardly as I usually do in situations that bring out the "omg, what!?" in me.

"Uhh ha um yes??"
"I just came to pick up a check and I would really hate myself if I didn't ask but, please tell me you're single"
"um haha uh I'm actually married, but thank you for that compliment!"
"Oh man, I KNEW it!! You're just the most beautiful woman I've ever seen. He is such a lucky guy!"
"Thank you, yeah I'm married! You're so nice though, have  great day!"

And yeah that's pretty much it. He said other stuff that I can't remember but there is the jist of that conversation.

Don't worry, I'm not making fun of him, that would be so mean! I know it take a lot of guts to ask a random girl on a date and it was super nice of him to say such nice things. I just was super shocked and surprised that someone a) Thought I was old enough to date (because I've had plenty of people come in mentioning how I look 'sooo young!!' and b) that he called back to ask if I was single! And c) that this was really happening right now.

Thursday was really weird. But honestly I don't even mind because it makes for a funny story. Here's to hoping Friday is slightly less awkward!

  8. Hahahaha that's like my worst nightmare. If anyone tried to ask me out, I don't even know what kind of story I would make up, but I would probably feel bad saying I was married and instead just say I was dying or something because it wouldn't hurt their feelings. And crazy people like that women scare me. I would have called someone else over to deal with her. Legit sounds like she was a crazy person!!

    1. I knowww!! he was really nice but I felt bad/awkward/ didn't know how to make it not awkward! k that is so funny, hahaha I can't go on dates because I have a terminal illness :'D (<--that's the crying laughing emoji I decided) There was a co worker who happened to be there when it happened and I let her do most of the talking because I was like uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh please go away in my head but I didn't want to be rude out loud.

  10. I've had people ask me out while I was married before too, and it's so awkward. One said "good thing you're taken because you're the kind of girl that would make me fall in love hard and fast." So so awkward. I had no idea what to say to that. lol. That lady sounds crazy-I would have been freaking out!

  18. I am a world-renowned scientist with advanced degrees form Harvard (Molecular Biology), Stanford (Genetic Engineering) and MIT (Neuro Biochemistry).

    I stumbled upon this blog post by complete accident while researching a complex scientific topic. I want to share with you something vital that I learned. Intrigued by the clearly beautiful young writer's story of getting asked on a date by a stranger, I decided to test one of my inventions, which allows me to extract DNA samples from pictures on a computer screen and then from those samples determine to what factors a person owes their good looks. When I did that for the blogger at hand, I learned that she can attribute her beauty to these three main items:

    (A) .0001%: Hair extensions
    (B) .0009%: Fresh breath
    (C) 99.999%: Genetic contributions of Father

    Thank you.

    p.s. Just so you'll be aware of my intellectual credentials, when challenged by this man to play the Wheel of Fortune board game, I so thoroughly dominated that, symbolically speaking, I spanked him and sent him to bed without any supper: http://www.hawking.org.uk/

  21. Firstly, I love your floral hoody. Secondly, I'm new to your blog and this post just made me smile. I love the way you explained how this guy was flirting with you, and how nice to were to politely reject him! It's little moments like these that we can look back on :)
