Why I don't even know what to make of this

In the latest of a long string of bad ideas, Guy From the Internet I Still Haven't Met says, "I just got a new job! I will be there from 9:00 to 18:30 every day, and I start Monday. Here is the address. Stop by and say hi sometime, if you'd like!"

Um, yes, perhaps I will. And maybe I will go for un footing first, so I can impress all his new coworkers with my glistening, red-faced charm and my droopy sweatpants. "How did you two meet?" they'll ask. And then we'll stand around reminiscing fondly about our first meeting, five minutes ago. "I still remember what I was doing when I first saw you," he'll say. "I was sitting right here, in this chair, and then you came in, and you said, hi."

"Actually, we met on the Internet," he'll add, because who doesn't want their new coworkers to know all the intimate details of their personal life?

Maybe his "friend" will come with her baby, and we can all sit around and talk together! Won't that be fun. Seriously, this guy is full of so many good ideas I can't stand it.

  1. Men are idiots (I know, I am one). Sometimes it is because we are bumbling children. Other times we are just stupid.

    P.S. Hold hands with Herve to give him the hint....

  4. I think the best idea may be to change your email address so he can't send you any more messages! ;)

  5. I think you should just make him an equally weird and awkward offer, such as, "Why don't you come over this weekend to check out my dark and cobwebby basement? I'll show you my awesome rusty chainsaw collection."
