Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow

Story Sent in by Bess:

My first date with Ted went from a bar to his bedroom. It was fast-moving but he was gorgeous. The next morning I took a shower, used some of his shampoo, we had breakfast together, and he made me promise, multiple times, to stay in touch. I was totally up for it.

We sent flirty texts over the next day but then he stopped responding. Then I didn't hear from him at all for a couple of days. Then he called me to ask, "Did you use any of my shampoo when you showered here?"

I replied that I had. "Was it a problem?"

He said, "No. As long as you pay for what you used. I'm not a shampoo factory."

I had used a minuscule amount. Was he being serious? Oh, he was. I was able to get him off my back by telling him that I'd pay him when I received my next paycheck.

He wrote to me every week or so to check in about the "reimbursement" but I just didn't respond and he eventually stopped contacting me.

  1. Omg. First of, did we have that title before? Not meant in a negative way, Mistah Jay, just to satisfy my OCD lol.

    Secondly, we DEF had a girl version of this, where she made him pay for the shampoo he used!
    We also had a story where the girl randomly took a shower and he thought that meant sexy times, but she wasn't about the sexy times at all and he kept going on that she used his precious unicorn milk soap lol.

    Why am I listing this?
    I'm sorry. I am high lol

    5. I was thinking the same thing as I was reading this. The girl wanted 50 cents and he ended up giving her a few pennies and leaving.
      Then I see this post as I'm opening the search in another tab. Beat me to it, Jason.

    2. Hah best laugh of my day, thankyouverymuch. That movie, like certain books, I re-read or watch on a default setting when I lose my sense of self living and working amongst various maniacs. Enjoyed the reference.

    1. BTW, you should have swung by his house and thrown a nickel at him when he came outside.

  4. Or it could be a case where OP used what to a female is a minuscule amount but Ted saw it as half the bottle (and it could have been half of what was left). Doesn't excuse Ted from being a jerk though.

  5. If I were Op I'd have asked how much he wanted, haha. See if he threw some crazy shit around like $5.00

    Honestly sounds like a crack head trying to exploit the date and see if he could bully her into a few dollars.

    How expensive was this shampoo?

  6. He was totally passive-aggressively getting rid of her. He probably believes that it is kinder for a women to want to stop seeing him because he's a jerk than ghosting her. Eh, probably is.

    1. Then why keep it up for weeks and weeks as OP stated? Seems showing some passive-aggressive fake control issue worked the first time around.

  7. I experienced the opposite side of this once. My roommate had bought a brand new stick of deodorant and found out the mechanism that pushes the stick out of the container was broken some how. Neither of us could figure out how to fix it, so he tossed it in the trash in the bathroom. Later that night I had a date over and as she was leaving she said she noticed a brand new deodorant in the trash and asked if she could take it. I said "sure..." No idea what she did with it, never heard from her again after that.
