I highly doubt this story is true but I heard it from one of the girls I took to the top of the Marriott Marquis, who claimed it happened to one of her friends.
While her friend was also at the top of the Marriott Marquis she felt the need to remove her shoes to let her feet “air out”. Apparently she didn’t realize that the bar revolves and she had to wait 45 minutes or so until she met up with her shoes again.
If it happened to you and you’re reading this please let us know.

lol Dr. Pepper!! I heard that story but I think the girl was just playing with her shoes under the table like taking them on or off!
I’m not so sure it’s true because from what I remember she would have had to leave her shoes right near the window or something dunno it’s prbly not so trueFebruary 19, 2009 10:11 pm at 10:11 pm #1226348
Dr Pepper –
Unless she was sitting so close to the inner bar, and her shoes somehow wondered away, there’s no way that could’ve happened – the floor underneath you goes with you.
Though every time someone mentions the Marriott Marquis that story always comes up. (I heard the version where she put down her pocketbook…)February 19, 2009 10:23 pm at 10:23 pm #1226349
getting info on the wrong person happens all the time. A cousin has the same name etc… this happened to a neighbor of mine and he got engaged to ‘the wrong’ girlFebruary 19, 2009 10:54 pm at 10:54 pm #1226350dunnoMember

Thanks, myshadow – but why? Because he waited, because he remembered, or because he said that if he had known he would’ve come rescue me?! 🙂February 20, 2009 12:43 am at 12:43 am #1226352beaconParticipant
My friend had a date who was dropped off (by his parents) at her house…with no plan whatsoever. My friend ended up driving her car, to a place her parents suggested. Needless to say, it didn’t work out.February 20, 2009 1:26 am at 1:26 am #1226353coke not pepsiMember

I went to a shadchan who set me up with a girl she had never met. The girl’s friend’s sister had boarded at the shadchan’s home for a few years, and apparently was talking about this girl all the time. The shadchan thought she was right for me, so she set it up. We dated about 3 months before we got engaged. We were engaged on Thanksgiving day, and that Sunday I took my kalla over to finally meet the shadchan!
One other funny story that also happened. The girl, at the time, lived in Flatbush. She lived with a few other girls in the upstairs of a two family home. When I first started calling her – before we even went out – I would leave messages on her answering machine, but she never called me back. Finally, I called the shadchan and explained my predicament. After finally speaking to the girl the first time, I heard “the rest of the story.” Her bedroom was the sun room, with windows all around. The room would get so hot during the day that her answering machine would overheat. She put it in the fridge to cool it down, but any messages on it were gone!February 20, 2009 2:45 pm at 2:45 pm #1226364anonowriterParticipant
A guy dating my friend backed into her father’s car as he was pulling up to the house before the date.
And her entire family was peering out the window.February 20, 2009 7:29 pm at 7:29 pm #1226366musicloverMember
this is actually a nice story. girl was driving home and crashed into car in front of her. the girl was hysterical and called her father. the car that she crashed into was a boy who was coming home from a date.(we heard that later on). when the father came he was very impressed with the way the boy handled the whole situation and as they say ,the rest is history. they got engaged to each other.February 20, 2009 7:35 pm at 7:35 pm #1226367

I also have plenty o’ stories….like one guy who suggested we take a walk after dinner. We realized it was raining. He ran ahead of me and shouted “Hurry up, Hurry up!! not minding the fact that he was crossing against the light, risking being run over by a bus…February 20, 2009 8:33 pm at 8:33 pm #1226369dunnoMember

Some posters have written that they are reluctant to share some funny stories since then they will reveal their identity.
Please, we all like a good laugh, just say it happened to someone you know.
Here’s one that happened to someone I know (it really wasn’t me).
This friend of mine borrowed his brothers car for the date and his brother warned him that if anything happens to the car, even if it’s not his fault, he’s in big trouble. When he was returning to the car after the date he thought he saw a few teenagers opening the doors and getting in. He started running and screaming, “don’t you dear touch my car”. The boys backed off terrified until he realized that his brothers car was a few cars ahead.
He then went back to the bewildered girl and apologized. She said it was O.K. and now she has a funny story to tell her friends.February 23, 2009 11:23 pm at 11:23 pm #1226383kapustaParticipant
someone once told me (this really didnt happen to me, heard it from someone who heard it etc) that her sisters mother in law went out with her fatherFebruary 24, 2009 1:52 am at 1:52 am #1226384

A boy was due to pick up my sister at night. During the day he tried and tried and was unable to rent a car. The shadchan called my father and asked if the boy could borrow his car. So when the boy came to pick up my sister, my father handed him the keys!!!
They didnt end up getting engaged but I am sure the boy was mortified!!!February 24, 2009 8:07 am at 8:07 am #1226389

okay i just heard another funny story- typical 3rd date, he takes her to a restaurant, it’s a nice place, they sit down to eat, there’s a beautiful lit candle on the table, as she’s scanning the menu trying to decide what to eat she smells smoke, is trying to figure out where its coming from, has no clue so keeps reading till she sees her whole menu’s in flames, she screams and drops the menu, now tablecloth starts, a waitress runs to get a fire extinguisher, meanwhile the guy plays fireman and dumps the water pitcher all over it, effectively dousing the girl as well. hahahaha. dont know if they got married or not.February 24, 2009 7:51 pm at 7:51 pm #1226398baal kishronParticipant
