When Push Comes to Shove

Story Sent in by Carl:

I took Sandra out to lunch one Saturday. We had met online and she seemed nice. After the meal we decided to walk through town, which was a charming area of indie shops and galleries.

As we walked, she said, "I want to show you a neat trick," and then she stood in front of me and pushed lightly on my chest with both of her hands. Then she stepped away.

"What's the trick?" I asked her.

She said, "Damn, I did it wrong," and then she did the same thing again and stepped away. Nothing happened. She tried it again. And again. And again.

"What's supposed to happen?" I finally asked.

She tried it a sixth time and for the sixth time I was confused. "Am I supposed to fall backward? What's supposed to happen?"

She tried it again and that time I couldn't help but laugh. What the hell was she trying to do?

That's when she became mad. Or frustrated. Or both, because that's when she shoved me hard and I almost fell over. "You messed it up!" she shouted as she stormed away.

I ran to catch up with her and asked her what the problem was.

She replied, "You! You are the problem! Will you leave me alone?"

I let her go. Probably one of the wisest decisions I've ever made.
