Kangaroo Smack

Story Sent in by Jacque:

I was out to a first date dinner with Joe when his cell phone rang. He picked it up and listened for a few moments before handing it to me. I took it and listened to the caller.

The caller was a guy, identifying himself as "Roger Kangaroo." He asked me if I was enjoying myself with Joe. I said I was, then asked "Roger" who he actually was.

He then spat out a tirade of horrific insults, the nicest of which was, "whore."

After only a few seconds of it, I hung up and shoved the phone back at Joe. I asked, "What the hell was that about?"

He looked at his phone and said, "You hung up? You actually hung up on Roger Kangaroo?"

"He was screaming obscenities at me!"

Joe looked insulted. "But you don't hang up on people! Are you a stupid little kid?"

"He called me a whore! And that was the least of it!"

Joe shook his head. "Doesn't matter. You fail that test. Completely."

I hesitated a moment to gather some thoughts, then stood and said, "Excuse me for a moment. I'm going to the bathroom."

"Come right back," Joe warned.

I never went back. AsshoIe.


  1. Tests should be for the classroom, not for a date.

  2. If the test was to see how much abuse you would put up with and still follow orders afterwards, I'd say you passed. There may have been snarkier or more clever exits, but it was still an exit. Good on you, OP.

  3. One does simply...hang up on Roger Kangaroo
