  • Good Thing They Caught Each Other, Part 19

    | Canada | Flirting/How We Met, Theme Of The Month

    (I work at a video game store. There’s a female customer who comes in often, but rarely buys anything. One day, when she comes in, I decide to help her.)

    Me: “Can I help you?”

    Customer: “Oh, yes, please. I’m looking for a new game.”

    Me: “Okay, what systems do you have?”

    (I listen in shock as the customer rattles off almost every platform.)

    Me: “What games do you like?”

    Customer: “Almost anything. I’m not choosy.”

    Me: “Well, how about Fire Emblem Awakening?”

    Customer: “Already have it. It’s a pretty good game.”


    Customer: “Have it. Almost caught them all… Except for the event Pokémon.”

    (This goes on for a good 10 minutes. Every time I suggest a game she already has it, and most of the time, has beaten it. Finally, I can’t find any others.)

    Me: “So you have all these games, and caught almost every Pokémon?”

    Customer: “Yep.”

    Me: “Marry me!”

    (The customer, sadly, said no. But she still comes in and looks for more games. Now, every time she comes in my coworkers joke about her being the one that got away…)

    Beard Bad Wolf

    | Winnipeg, MB, Canada | Engaged

    (My fiancé and I are in a parking lot and he is in the process of unlocking his car. I am tugging the handle and saying ‘let me in! let me in!’)

    Fiancé: “Not by the hair on my chinny chin chin!” *he has a beard*

    Me: “Then I’ll cut them off!”

    Fiancé: “That’s not how it goes!”

    Me: “Well, I can’t huff and puff my way into your car!”

    Fiancé: “That’s because I’m the third pig and you can’t knock my s*** over!”

    Our Whole Relationship Was In A Hot, Dense, State…

    | Denmark | Marriage & Partners, Theme Of The Month

    (My husband and I are both huge fans of ‘The Big Bang Theory,’ but due to lack of new episodes it’s been a while since we saw it last. One night as I’m heading off to bed…)

    Me: *replying to something he said* “True that.”

    Husband: “True dat?”

    Me: “…yeah, I’ve gotten a lot more street since we dated.”

    Husband: “I love you so much! That was exactly what I had in mind. This is why we fit so perfectly together.”

    (Slight pause.)

    Husband: “One thing worries me though… Apparently you’re Leonard and I’m Penny!”

    Out Of Control(ler)

    | ON, Canada | Theme Of The Month

    (My husband and I are both huge gamers and our little apartment is cluttered with our various nerd merchandise. Among it is six different game consoles and the controllers aren’t always picked up or organized.)

    Me: *looking around* “You know, there comes a time in every gamer’s life when they look at the floor and try and figure out which controller they’re supposed to pick up to play the game they just turned on. WHERE IS THE GAMECUBE CONTROLLER?!”

    Snuggle Or There Will Be The Devil To Pay

    | Raleigh, NC, USA | Marriage & Partners, Theme Of The Month

    (My husband has just come in to snuggle with me a little before I fall asleep. I’m making out with him to try to convince him to stay a while longer.)

    Husband: ”I’m sorry, but I’m not up for more than make-outs.”

    Me: *I throw my arms around him* ”Then begone with you.”

    Husband: ”You are adorable! Almost worth not getting back to Diablo 3 for.”
