This is a question I Quit!

Scaryduck writes, "I celebrated my last day on my paper round by giving everybody next door's paper, and the house at the end 16 copies of the Maidenhead Advertiser. And I kept the delivery bag. That certainly showed 'em."

What have you flounced out of? Did it have the impact you intended? What made you quit in the first place?

he quit!
my friend evie went on a first date on saturday night with a guy she really, really likes. she was very nervous, but it all went swimmingly well.

so well, in fact, that when they were walking romantically along waterloo bridge at the end of the night (most romantic views in london? arguably yes!), he tipped her chin up, put his mouth on hers, hands cupping her face and stroking her hair, and kissed her. she said it was magical, an amazing kiss, lights of london spread out before them, stars twinkling, his mouth warm and firm on hers, knees buckling...

then, as they finished kissing, he pulled slightly away and looked deep into her eyes.

and what did evie do in response? drawing in a ragged breath, heart pounding, she announced...






"eeeees niiiiiiice!"

in her best borat voice. why? why?? she has absolutely no idea. all she knows is that he folded her into the next orange-lighted taxi and hasn't texted or called her yet..............

Bundling her in a cab and ignoring her
is probably a tad harsh, were it me I'd have settled for laughing my arse off.

Nice one Evie.

That has to be the funniest thing I've heard in a long long time.
Reminds me of me although I usually end up insulting the object of my affection.

That response
would have rounded off what sounded like a perfect evening to me. What a git!

You're one for playground tactics too
'ey BGB?

I thought it was going to be something horrible
like she did a little sicky burp in his face or something.

If he really was put off by what she said, she's probably better off without someone so humourless.

well
it's only tuesday. maybe he's just playing it cool!

on the other hand, he is a bean-counting accountant. i thought a sense of humour bypass was part of the training?!

Oh, he's an accountant
tell your friend to run, RUN FOR THE HILLS AND DON'T LOOK BACK!!!

Also tell her that the filing date for self assessment tax returns has been brought forward to 31 October, unless filed on-line...

^ the colonel
in the context of your second sentence... the first makes perfect sense!!

only joking...

Pffffft! I didn't see that coming at all!
That sounds like the sort of thing I would do.

To be honest
I think I would have done the same (the Borat exclamation, not the folding into a taxi bit).

Must be an accountant thing - my ex wife was an accountant (technically, she still is). When I announced that I was divorcing her she didn't find it at all funny...

Hahaha!
Oh my God, even I wouldn't say that!

@I would have
been chuffed I'd met a lass with a sense of humour, and then made Chewbacca noises during the first bout of horizontal sparring as payback.

I liiiike
this can only make her more endearing, surely.

Honestly, some people.

*rolls eyes*

Like the rest in here
I would have cracked up and been completely won over by her. What the guy's problem is, I have no idea.

similar to
a girl I had a flingette with last year.
Mid-coitus she announced loudly in my ear:
"Sexy time!"

Not good.

@ 'monkey
That would have worked for me.

*ponders* Which is quite worrying.

What a waste of a perfectly good lass!

The guy

has to be a humourless tw@t if he didn't find that funny!

there are plenty of humourless twats about

She's best off out of him....
.. if he doesnt have a sense of humour.
I mean you only get one chance to make a first impression.
(, Tue 27 May 2008, 17:46, closed)
That's just cruel.
Surely he has a sense of humour? Poor girl, *clickyhug* for her, and for you...
(, Tue 27 May 2008, 18:32, closed)
and hasn't texted or called her yet..............
well, she should text him then.

i don't give a shit about what each sex should or should't do.*

*might be something to do with "guys are ment to be taller than girls, and im not :(

@Swipe
Tell her she needs to go out with a b3tard. There's a queue of lonely, sad, desperate, horny geekscaring, loving, witty gentlemen on this site who would appreciate her humour.

the correct response should have been
You like? I like.
