Lased and Confused

Story Sent in by Irene:

For whatever reason, Samuel brought a laser pointer to our date. While he sat across from me at dinner he kept shining it into my eyes. I kept turning away or putting a hand up or telling him to stop it but a few minutes later he'd be back at it. I guess he thought it was funny even though it was stupid and dangerous.

After he ruined nearly the whole dinner by shining his stupid laser pointer around he said, "I'll take care of the check. I feel bad that someone shone a laser pointer at you the whole time."

I said, "It was you!"

He seemed to become actually offended and said, "No it wasn't! I was trying to protect you from it! I would never!"

He kept denying it and soon it was clear that he was just crazy. While he signed the check with his right hand he shone the laser pointer at me with his left. He kept shining it at me as I left. I couldn't wait to be away from him.

    4. They stay to be featured on this site. Maybe there are hardcore fans here who seek out bad dates intentionally just to write in. Maybe.

  3. He asked for one simple thing, but the wait staff couldn't deliver. He had to improvise.
