Aside from That, How Was Dinner?

Submitted by Alyse:

Joe contacted me on a dating website this past summer and we arranged to meet up at a local pub. He seemed very nice and sensitive, but he mentioned that he was going through a tough time.

I made it there first, and he showed up a couple of minutes later, drunk as drunk could be. Unsure of what to do, I walked inside with him and he practically fell into a booth. I asked him, "Do you want to postpone?" and in response, he buried his head in his arms on the table.

He put up a finger to make me wait a minute, then his head shook and he started coughing - but it wasn't coughing, it was vomiting, right onto his lap.

"I'll be right back," I said, but didn't come back.

He even sent me an e-mail to apologize, and he got my name wrong!


  1. Good for you to get away from a drunk.

  2. of course he spelled your name wrong. how many girls spell their name "alyse"? if you have a strange name, people will mess it up.

  3. The guy was probably nervous and tried to drink to relax, guess he went overboard.

    I kinda feel for the guy

  4. I don't think he spelled it wrong; I think he called her a different name altogetger!
