ALL / Dating



I met AngryBird in the Summer of 2003 as an undergrad when 12 of my closest friends and I decided to rent a giant rundown house near campus. He was a friend-of-a-friend from another school, but visited often. On one of these trips, AngryBird asked to get together just the two of us.


In a college town, there generally aren’t too many date activities, but you can always count on cheap meals, bad live music, and watery beer. I was in luck when AngryBird planned an evening of bad live music AND watery beer for us. Afterwards, I invited him back to my house and we stayed up drinking and talking on the front porch, before we each retired to our respective homes. At this point, it would appear that I got through a reasonable date without anything going wrong.

Obviously, this couldn’t be the case. The next morning I woke up and some things were missing. Like my car. It took a good 45 minutes of tracing and re-tracing my steps from the day prior to finally conclude that it was time to call the police. Do you know what’s a real buzz kill to a relationship? Accusing someone of stealing your car. When the detective finally got to the bottom of it, it turned out that a local hoodlum had broken into our living room, taken my car keys from the key table, and driven off with the prize.

Too bad there’s not a Hallmark card that says, “Sorry I called the police and told them you stole my car.” xoxo Awkward

  1. That’s HILARIOUS! Funny story. Stuff like that mainly happens in college, but I have a friend who met a girl in a bar and she drugged him and stole Porsche. Could be worse.

  2. I could see this happening to me if I had ‘gone to college’ when I was young rather than worked my way through.

    Thanks for the laugh after a bad day. 🙂

  3. This blog is great! Best way to start my morning at work ever. Seeing as I’ve intentionally given up watching “How I Met Your Mother” for the next month, this blog is like the female perspective in writing. You should probably start selling the rights.

    Seriously, great blog. And thanks for stopping by mine!

  4. He obviously did not have the right sense of humor to appreciate the situation… I dropped a guy at the side of the road in the middle of nowhere in the dead of winter after he became an insulting jerk. And he called after he thawed out and apologized 🙂

  5. Another great story – I believe this one….

    If you lived in the UK, or if you have been following the phone hacking enquiries of the Leveson Enquiry, you might know that many Celebrities have been ‘accusing’ their friends and family of lots of wrong doings, even though they were innocent. So one might assume that Hallmark are working on new product ideas. And if not, some enterprising entrepreneur should.

  6. Hahaha! This takes me back.

    Many years ago, my uncle was arrested and booked for breaking into a car. The true story is that he got so drunk that he opened a car he thought was his and jumped into the backseat for a nap.

  7. You have Incredible powers of deduction! Wither Sherlock holmes. Might be worth tracking him down and sending him ‘Hot Wheels’ toy car…. Keep burning them. I am a man as well, but any man ending up on the wrong side of date, deserves to be singed.

    Thanks for dropping by on my blog BTW…..
