yeah but imagine how bad he would have felt. he was SOOO nervous as it was and then not even a half hour after our date starts and he makes a mistake and on top of that his date laughs at him in his face. knowing him now he prob wouldnt have been able to talk the whole time thinking that i thought he was stupid or something. which he is not. i think i did smile but only when his back was turned.September 4, 2009 5:09 pm at 5:09 pm #1227100
Let me tell you, you really proved yourself there!September 4, 2009 5:09 pm at 5:09 pm #1227101areivimzehlazehParticipant
excuse my lack of sensitivity
To each his own
If I would’ve a made a mistake of that magnitude, it would be a comfort to know the person can laugh about it and dismiss it (instead of wondering if the other person is thinking who knows what of me…)
btw- that story is a scream 😉September 4, 2009 5:15 pm at 5:15 pm #1227102
You smiled behind his back? Why, why, why…September 4, 2009 5:32 pm at 5:32 pm #1227103
now we laugh at it…
but the rest of our dates were not really so funnySeptember 4, 2009 5:35 pm at 5:35 pm #1227104
not os funny but on our third date we went mini-golfing and while we were there at one point he was writing the score holdong the card to he wall and the next group came up so i moved over so they could start and he didnt realize and turned around and banged into me and we both seriously jumped two feet and for the next few holes we kept like 3 feet between us.September 4, 2009 5:40 pm at 5:40 pm #1227105
OMG, and you married him? You’re really nice 😉September 4, 2009 5:49 pm at 5:49 pm #1227106
well as the rest of the date went well and our second date went REALLY great and all the rest were good, yeah i married him. you cant say no for a silly slip of tongue.September 4, 2009 5:50 pm at 5:50 pm #1227107
or at least i cantSeptember 4, 2009 5:51 pm at 5:51 pm #1227108

mepal: oh ok sorry
i dated one guy before my hsband and that was last summer and we parked by a 2 hour meter and when we got back two hours and five min later he had a ticket. turned out that the car he was driving (a rental) remote was broken and he had to manually open the door and the guy had given him off on the rental because of it and the price of the ticket was that exact amount.
but the part i didnt like was that instead of opening the door for me and then going around to his side he got in on his side and reached over and opened the lock for me. and this was my first date ever!!!
and now my car’s passanger side lock is not connected to the power lock switch (its an old car) and my husband almost always opens my door for me from the outside unless he is already in the car.September 6, 2009 6:36 am at 6:36 am #1227110shauleMember
someone went on a date once with this guy who first had to stop for gas,fill up&get quarters for any future meters they would stop by….buy then they then went all the way to the city,and he refused to park in any of the parking lots,saying he knows the guy who works there&he doesn’t want the parking lot guy to see he’s on a date!weird!September 6, 2009 5:11 pm at 5:11 pm #1227111
Weird indeed. Next time, make sure you’re ‘filled up and have all the quarters you need before picking up the date.September 7, 2009 4:25 am at 4:25 am #1227112
on my sisters 2nd date it was freezing outside and they went for a stroll, but my sis 4got her gloves. and she was like rubbing her hands together when her date asked if by chance it would be his pleasure if she wants to borrow his gloves! and yes they re married for 2 years now bh”September 7, 2009 5:59 pm at 5:59 pm #1227113
Did she borrow them?September 8, 2009 1:35 am at 1:35 am #1227114
mepal, come on it was only the 2nd date! but she said thanks anyway!September 8, 2009 6:09 am at 6:09 am #1227115bein_hasdorimParticipant
I have one it’s not so much funny as cute,
this friend of mine was on a date in the city & he parked the car
& got a receipt from the munimeter. He tried to
to get it to stay on dashboard in view through the windshield but it kept flying off,
so he asked his date if she had some gum? She said replied no, but i have lip gloss.
he took it, & put some on the back of the ticket & stuck it on the dashboard,
& it worked! but they didn’t get married.September 8, 2009 1:37 pm at 1:37 pm #1227116RaisedEyebrowMember

I posted this many months back but it never made it in. I hope it makes it this time.
This isn’t really a shidduch story but it did happen and I found it funny.
Johnny was a bounty hunter for Michael, a bail bondsman. Michael attempts to use the cash payments he’s made to Johnny as a business expense. His CPA explains to him that Johnny has to report it as income and for that he’ll need his SSN. Michael asks Mackenzie, his secretary, to call the number on Johnny’s business card and get his SSN.
Here’s how the conversation went.
Mackenzie: Hi, may I please speak with Johnny?
Voice on the other end: He ain’t here right now!
Mackenzie: And who am I speaking with?
Voice on the other end: Me
Mackenzie: What is your relationship to Johnny?
Voice on the other end: I’m his Momma!
Mackenzie: Well, maybe you can help me. I’m trying to get his SSN for some tax purposes.
Johnny’s Mamma: You ain’t be callin here for Johnny no more or Johnny gonna take you out.
Mackenzie: Oh, that’s so nice of him. It’s been so long since anyone offered to take me out!
Johnny’s Mamma: You ain’t be understandin, Johnny gonna take you out- you ain’t be comin back!
Michael was not able to claim those payments as a business expense.September 11, 2009 7:09 pm at 7:09 pm #1227123squeakParticipant
You may not have realized it, Dr. Pepper, but that story has all the makings of a shidduch story!
First calling the mother of the boy
He offers take the caller out on a date
His date finds out he’s a creep when the mother says he won’t bring her back
And the part about wanting to write off the cost of the date as a business expense…. good idea, really good idea.September 11, 2009 9:24 pm at 9:24 pm #1227124

on my brothers first date, he 4got his wallet on the counter and he didnt have his license yet so the girl had to pay for the taxi and for the drinks! and tehy are married for about 8 years! b”h
the day my othere brother was getting engaged my mom realized a diamond was missing and we had to catch a bus to get it back in time when my bro got home!
on my bro’s first date he came back and said its not for him . but my mom said just try it out 1 more time because she is from out of town and she is here for 1 more day. after the 2nd date, mmy bro told my mom that he is getting engaged!September 13, 2009 6:55 pm at 6:55 pm #1227126FunnyBunnyMember
A boy came home from his 2nd date and told the shadchan it’s not for him. The shadchan didn’t agree- he called the girl and told her that the boy said “yes”. Then, shadchan called the boy back and told him that he already told the girl “yes” and he feels really bad about calling her back and telling her “no”. Shadchan convinced the boy to go out one more time with the girl. They are happily married for a few years now.September 14, 2009 4:50 am at 4:50 am #1227127NY MomMember
I agreed to go out with a guy, and in talking to him, found out that he did not have a car. Being that I did have a car at my disposal and I was an independent girl, I offered to drive on the date. He agreed and we decided to go to the boardwalk by Coney Island in Brooklyn. Well, I parked on the street at a meter and we went for a walk. When we got back to the car, we discovered that my car had been broken into and that they had stolen my radio! Nice thing to happen on a date!
He felt really bad about it, but what are you gonna do?September 14, 2009 5:00 am at 5:00 am #1227128
Marry him?September 14, 2009 5:19 am at 5:19 am #1227129
joseph: is that what u would have done?!September 14, 2009 1:00 pm at 1:00 pm #1227131NY MomMember
No, I didn’t marry him – but only because he wasn’t for me.September 14, 2009 2:02 pm at 2:02 pm #1227132
FB, I think that is WRONG of the shadchan to do that. Its wrong for them to push too hard.September 14, 2009 2:21 pm at 2:21 pm #1227133
Yet it worked.September 14, 2009 2:55 pm at 2:55 pm #1227134
What if it would’ve ended with a divorce? It just means a lot to me since it happened to someone close to me. The shadchan pushed too hard…September 14, 2009 2:58 pm at 2:58 pm #1227135FunnyBunnyMember
mepal, I heard this story from the shadchan, it is not a story that personally happened to me. Truth be told, I also would not appreciate the pressure from the shadchan like that, but, as Joseph put it “yet it worked.” Just goes to show that when something is bashert, Hashem makes it happen!September 14, 2009 3:05 pm at 3:05 pm #1227136WolfishMusingsParticipant
Yet it worked.
So what? How does that excuse what s/he did? That’s like saying it’s okay for me to steal from you if I think there’s a reasonable chance you’ll end up with more money at the end of the day.

I vote with FunnyBunny’s view.September 14, 2009 5:32 pm at 5:32 pm #1227138WolfishMusingsParticipant
I agree with “if it’s bashert, HaShem will make it happen.” Nonetheless, that doesn’t dismiss my point. The thief could make the same claim.
The WolfSeptember 14, 2009 5:40 pm at 5:40 pm #1227139
I’m with wolf. It is not the shadchan’s place to push so hard and to make you feel so worthless for daring to say no to the ‘top’ boy/girl (if they give you the chance to say no).September 14, 2009 6:23 pm at 6:23 pm #1227140
I’m with wolf.
