Leave Me Hanging

Story Sent in by Erin:

Rob took me to a rock climbing gym that also had big trampolines for adults. I love trampolines so I thought it was a great first date idea.

Rob also really liked trampolines. So much so that while we bounced on a big one together he kept tackling me and copping a feel. I kept moving his hands away but he kept at it. At one point I told him to stop and he said, "It's just an accident. Chill out." It kept happening.

He was uncomfortably touchy-feely even after we were off the trampolines. When the time came to climb the wall I let him go first while I hoisted and spotted him below.

When he was at the top of the wall I called an attendant and asked them to take it over for me, which they did. Rob, tied up as he was, couldn't catch up with me fast enough to stop me from leaving without him. I heard him shouting behind me, louder and louder. The whole gym must've heard him scream, "Hey! Hey! You wait for me! You don't leave! You wait! You wait!"

I left him there and never saw him again.

  1. This made me laugh out loud!

    But still, I'm undecided whether it was overly harsh or well deserved...

    2. Well deserved. He was unwelcomed and grabby.

  2. Everyone is so cynical these days... I mean, when I trampoline, my hand ALWAYS inadvertently bounces onto the breasts of all the nearby women 5 or 30 times... it's an accident!

    1. Same. Accidentally elbowed him in the face.

  5. His choice of words at the end tell me he's a very controlling sort of man. That added to his lack of remorse about touching someone without permission suggests sociopathic tendencies. His anger at the end furthers this hypothesis. You dodged that speeding bullet so well, even superman is impressed.

    1. Right. How was he not embarrassed to be hollering up from that height and crowd? "Wait, hold uppp!" I'd be too shy to make a scene from such a podium.

  6. Funny, I didn't see that as an issue listed in the "Bad Bounces: The Risky Side of Trampolines" article I recently read. If it wasn't mentioned in that article, this chick is obviously overreacting.

  7. Am I the only one who was hoping when he got to the top she was going to drop the rope and tell him it was an accident? No? Just me?

    1. Evil!Dyani wanted that, but LadyDyani decided an accidental punch was easier to pretend was an accident.
