Yesterday after work, I stopped at Harris Teeter to pick up a few things and was walking home from there. I've done this a zillion times, so I thought nothing of it. As I walked along Pennsylvania Ave SE (not in the sketchy part!), I turned to head north towards my apartment. I noticed out of the corner of my eye a white sedan slowing down, but again, thought nothing of it.
Then the car stopped, and I heard the driver say "excuse me." I glanced at him and the passenger, but looked away, as I didn't think he was speaking to me. Then he repeated himself, so I stopped, assuming they needed directions somewhere.
Driver- "excuse me"
Driver- "I was just wondering if I could take you out on a date."
Lexi- *dumbfounded* "sorry, I have a boyfriend"
Driver- "okay, have a good day!"
I was flabbergasted! Does this happen often? Do people say yes when random guys pull up to them and ask them out on the sidewalk? Did he think that I was going to say yes?
So of course, I called Steve immediately to tell him and then promptly updated my facebook status to tell the tale. Several people, including my sister, commented and said I should remind Steve that I am still on the market and he has some competition! Ha!
I did think it was pretty funny, though so random! The best part, was the guy was no more than 20 years old!
Has anything like this happened to you?
