Driving Them Away

| MI, USA | Flirting/How We Met, Popular

(I am first in line at a stop light, waiting for the light to turn green in order to get to a fancy restaurant where I am meeting someone for a first date. I call her to let her know that I am almost there and we talk for a couple minutes. There is a clear “No Turn on Red” sign right next to the road in clear view of everyone.)

Me: “So, do you want to go catch a movie afterwards or something?”

Her: “Sure, we could go see— MOVE, YOU MOTHER-F*****! THERE’S NOBODY COMING! YOU CAN TURN!”

(I hear the car behind me honking and see a young girl on the phone screaming and flailing her arms wildly about. I also hear background honking in my phone.)


(At this point I know it is her behind me. The light turns green and I complete my turn.)

Her: “FINALLY! God, people need to learn how to drive. This little s*** wouldn’t turn right when nobody was coming the other way.”

Me: “Well, I guess you won’t be seeing that little s*** at dinner.” *click*

(We’re driving home from getting food and discussing that we recently started saying “I love you.”)

Boyfriend: “We still haven’t said it over text message, though…”

Me: “Dibs.”

Boyfriend: “…”

Me: “Can I call dibs on that? Yeah, I’m calling dibs on that.”


To Keep Your Girlfriend Then Keep To Time

(I normally commute home on the train and then drive back from the train station, but today my friend at work is having a goodbye party, so I get a ride to work from my dad. I’ve arranged with my boyfriend that he will pick me up that night and I’ll stay at his house.)

Me: *texting* “Sorry, this is going a bit later than I thought. I’ll leave soon, though.”

Boyfriend: “No worries, I’m just cleaning up around the house.”

Me: *a bit later* “Okay, I left and I’ll probably catch the train that gets in at [time]. Is that good?”

Boyfriend: “Yup, I’ll be there!”

(I get to the train station about two minutes later than the schedule says, but I don’t see my boyfriend’s car. I call him, assuming he’s driving, and he answers.)

Boyfriend: “Hey, babe, what’s up?”

Me: “Hey, I’m at the station.”

Boyfriend: “Oh, s***! Didn’t you say [time 15 minutes later]? I must have reversed the numbers!”

Me: “No, I said [original time]. It doesn’t have any of the same numbers…”

Boyfriend: “Oh… I guess I just made that up, then.”
