On my first date I was still a fairly new driver. My parents thought that it was safer for the both of us if I took car service. After waiting twenty minutes for the “guaranteed less than ten minutes car service” the car pulls up with an immigrant couple in the front. I asked them to take me to the place I was going which was ten minutes away. A few minutes in I realized we were going in the wrong direction but didn’t say anything. A half hour later they finally stopped to ask a truck driver for directions which they didn’t understand. They then asked a cop and were finally on their way. We ended up getting to a place ten minutes away in forty-five minutes. Go Car service.

We were by the Brooklyn Marriott. After schmoozing for like half an hour an African american lady came over and complimented me on my hat. She then asked me if she could hold it. Not wanting to look a rude guy, I gladly gave it to her. After she held it for a few seconds she gave it back to me with another compliment. Not thinking too much about it we continued schmoozing. About forty five minutes she returned and asked if she could buy the hat from me. By that time i thought she was most prob not all there so said it wasn’t for sale. She than asked me how much it cost. Thinking she was going to start negotiating with me, I just said it was very expensive. She became very upset and started screaming at me that I insulted her by saying something was expensive as if she didn’t have money. I quickly explained that i meant relatively for what i thought the hat is actually worth. The End.

I was driving on a date on a steamy summer evening when all of a sudden the cars windshield started fogging up. I tried putting on the defogger but to no avail. I was on the highway going sixty five in the middle lane. The only way i could see out the front was by peeking out from the very top. For some odd reason I was wearing my hat and yes it was going through the roof. B”H I got off the next exit, but i didnt have anything to wipe the windshield with. When I opened my trunk i found a skirt my sister left. Beggars cant be choosers, so i wiped the windshield with it.

On a first date, I was driving back from the hilton in SI when on the BQE I broke down. The car just stopped accelerating. I turned the music a little louder to hide any hint of nervousness and slowly inched the car towards the nearest exit which was about a mile away. I was able to move like 5 mph. I parked the car right away and called chaveirim. I didnt have their number so i first called my house. They told me my car prob. overheated and I should take it the nearest gas station. With the help of the gps i found a gas station but the guy there refused to help me claiming he doesn’t speak english. At the second gas station i found a taxi filling up for gas so I asked the driver for help. He told me what type of coolant to buy from the convenience store and I brought it to him. With the girl still in the car he opened the hood and poured in the coolant. I was standing like ten feet away as a huge cloud of smoke bellowed out of the engine; It must of been very hot. The engine started, I payed the guy 20 bucks, and then drive her home. Sach hakol, the whole ordeal took about an hour.

I brought along two large cookies on a date in two separate brown paper bags. I finished mine and put the garbage, i.e. cups, in the bag. She didn’t eat hers. When she was leaving the car, i told her to take the cookie with her and gave her her bag. Boy, was I in for a shocker when i opened the other bag that night in the dorm room and found a cookie there. woops!

I had a date and a chasuna the same night. My roommates only knew about the date. At the chasuna, I sprained me ankle and had to get a cast. My roommates really had a laugh when i told them what she did to me.
