Leave Me Hanging

Story Sent in by Bette:

Glenn and I encountered each other online and met for a first date in person at a diner. He wore a dress shirt with an interesting accoutrement: a plastic clothes hangar was sticking out of it.

I pointed it out to him and asked, "Were you in a really big hurry out the door?"

He pulled the hangar out and said, "No. I just forgot about it."

We ordered our meals. I had an omelet and he ordered steak. Halfway through his lunch he stared down at it and said, "I think this is meat."

I said, "It is. You ordered steak."

He said, "I don't eat meat," then stood up, handed me the plastic hangar, and said, "Something to remember me by in case I don't come back." He left and didn't come back. I've since used the hangar to hang up lots of clothes, though.

  1. Don't judge, maybe he had a bad home life OP. And who knows what could have caused him to hate meat.

  4. I think perhaps the "hangar" was a bit of a red herring and perhaps it turned out that OP was the bad date?

  5. How could he not notice a hangar in his clothes? A hanger I might have understood at a push but a hangar is something large enough to house planes, so...
