Subzero to Sixty

Story Sent in by Linda:

This happened on a hot summer day. Dorsey picked me up to take me out to lunch at a place on the other side of the county. He asked me if I wanted the windows down or the air conditioner. I told him I preferred the windows. He responded by locking the windows and pumping up the AC.

On the highway we hit some major traffic. Dorsey's car became uncomfortably cold. I asked him if he could turn the AC down. He said he would but as I watched he actually cranked it up.

I asked him if he had raised it and he denied it but there was no denying that the car was even colder. I asked him if I could turn it down and he said that only he was allowed to touch the temperature controls in his car. It was becoming really uncomfortable and I asked him again if he could turn down the AC.

He cranked it up even more. At this point I was shivering. I reached for the controls and he hit my hand away. "You will not touch them!" he shouted.

I was peeved at this point. We were in stopped traffic and so I unlocked my door and left him right there on the highway!

"Where are you going!?" he shouted after me but I traipsed across a field to make it to a local road. I called my father and he came to pick me up and bring me home.

  1. I bet Dorsey made it cold in the car on purpose to get an eye full of nippy nips.When your date flees the car and traipse across a field like a fleeing Von Trapp to get away from you,you are certainly a douche...

  2. In this day and age, I'm sure Dorsey could easily go onto some specialised website and find a girl who would actually enjoy this kind of behaviour. But then, it would not surprise me if he was too much of a douche even for a masochist...

    1. He was totally working the sadist angle hoping she would bite. I'm sure he will try this again and I hope he gets what he deserves....

    2. Just a minor break to mention that everyone should watch Tropic Thunder this weekend, because it's the awesomest movie ever.

  4. This is why you take your own car with you on a date, ladies and gentlemen!

  5. This guy either did this because he wanted to assert dominance in hopes she was the sort to be into that, or he was a controlling bastard looking to find out from the beginning whether she'd put up with his shit. If this is how it started, he'd be locking her in the house in a week, beating her in a month. RUN OP RUN RUN WHILE YOU CAN CAN.

    1. The OP ran. Give her a cookie. Or a Cookie.

    2. I shall give her a Cookie holding a cookie while dressed as a cookie. It's more appropriate that way.

    3. After all those cookies, she's going to have to hit the gym.

    4. My google-fu has deserted me. I couldn't find a picture of a Cookie holding a cookie while dressed as a cookie.

      The disappointment is palpable.

  6. He was just trying to see how frigid she is. Or he was hoping for a new scarf.

    Either way, good for you for getting out of the car on a highway, OP, sounds super safe.
