Blind date don’ts
There is a website that offers blind date tips called “Dr. Dave and Dee.” It suggests that guys should not tell dirty jokes. You know what else a guy should never say on a blind date?
Top Ten Things Guys Should Never Say On a Blind Date:
“It takes the lotion and it puts it in the basket.”
“The term sexual offender is so broad.”
“Does this look infected to you?”
“For the rest of the date, let’s talk only in Klingon.”
“Could you ask your sister for my lucky boxers back?”
“It really only hurts when I pee.”
“That bitch Paris Hilton dumped me.”
“That dress looks great. That reminds me, have you heard how fat Britney Spears has become?”
“You’re dreamy. Can I name my Gerbil after you?”
And the thing a guy should never say on a blind date:
“Nicknames are cute. Can I call you Hoobastank?”
Since you asked:
I hate it when you tell someone about some horrendous event you had, like a bike crash or a bad snowboard fall, and, because you didn’t actually die, they always say the same idiotic thing: “Wow, you were really lucky. It could have been worse.”
Oh yeah? Exactly what is so lucky about tumbling down an icy double black diamond run bouncing your head on the top of every mogul? Lucky? No, the guy sitting on the chairlift next to his new girlfriend Jessica Simpson with a winning lottery ticket in his wallet watching me hurtling down the mountain like Wiley Coyote, he’s lucky. Me? I got heavily screwed.
And it could have been worse? It could always be worse. Just because a flaming meteor didn’t crash into your living room that doesn’t mean you should feel grateful. And, as a caveat, never, ever, say; “At least things can’t get any worse.” You know what? Yes they can get worse, and if you say that, sure as hell, they will get worse.
