// So someone submitted this really funny tale, decided to share it! // Name is anonymous by request!
I went on a date a few months ago. With someone my friend set me up with. I should have known not to trust her opinion really. She is the same friend who once, in her early 20’s, dated a 50-year-old fairground worker with no teeth. And is currently dating a man who routinely disappears off to the desert to ‘find things to sell’ or something equally legit sounding.
But times were tough. So, no judgement. Anyway, we went to dinner. He was erm…a unique character? To say the least. First of all, he was late to meet me because his car doesn’t start if it’s been raining outside. Which, in England, is a slight problem.
Secondly, despite the fact that he had eventually driven to the date, he proceeded to order 4 Jagerbombs as a pre dinner drink.
Thirdly, whether it was out of nerves or he was trying to be funny. He spent the entire dinner regaling me with tales of his driving exploits. Which included, having to take his driving test 9 times! And a fun game he likes to play on the roads called ‘let’s see how late I can leave it to brake’ which, as far as I could tell, involves driving as close as possible behind something before slamming on the brakes.
Other fun anecdotes included the time he drove into a pedestrian square narrowly missing a family of 5 because ‘it used to be a car park’ and the time he drove into the middle of a field of cows because his satnav told him to turn left.
Needless to say, he didn’t get a second date, and as I watched him drive off into the night, he promptly drove around a roundabout in the wrong direction.
So to all of the car insurance companies out there, be very careful who you offer insurance to.
Oh, and he also made me contribute about $50 towards all of the Jagerbombs I didn’t drink. Now I think I’ll buy some full coverage insurance since I need more protection; there’s too many crazy drivers lol..
