Story Sent in by Lisa:

Jose and I were grabbing a drink when he looked across the crowded bar and stared at someone. I turned to see who it was, but it was really too crowded to tell.

I asked him, "Know someone?"

He said, "My ex."

I didn't know any details about any of his exes, and so I glanced down the bar again and turned back to him, but he was already staring somewhere else, across the room.

"Oh my God," he said, "Another ex."

I looked in the direction in which he was looking. It was another big clump of people. Maybe I should've chosen somewhere quieter for our first date? I had no idea it would be that busy on a Thursday night.

Then, he looked in another direction and his eyes went wide. "I don't believe it," he said, "Another ex."

"Are you serious?" I asked him.

Then he looked like he was about to cry.

He paid for our drinks then hurried out with me. I was going to ask him if he wanted to go elsewhere, but he said, "All right. Goodnight," and left me standing there with the rest of his exes.


  1. ^ WTF?

    OP has now joined the rank and file of the EX army.

  2. He's got his uptight white virginal followers
    I've got these metal chicks dumber than rocks
    Dated one once but I hated the music
    And all her ex-boyfriends were there on the bus
