This week I was in Lowe’s minding my own business, by the birdseed, when I started up a conversation with a man over corn for squirrels. Etc.
He was cute although a little rough around the edges ~ but what should one expect in Lowes right? I was just being my friendly self, for I never meet a stranger and I love to help and talk to people where ever I go. Then I walked on and as I passed by him again, he asked me if I was married (NO)…..then he asked for my phone number.
Well, against my better judgement, I gave him my card, after all he was cute and I haven’t been on a date in over 2 years, so….hmmmmn. I said maybe, then gave him my card. He said he would call me and we would do dinner some time. I said we will see.
The next evening, I got a call. I bumbled the whole thing, thinking it was another friend, and well, after I got it straightened all out. He asked me if I wanted to come over.
I replied; that I didn’t go to a man’s house at night of someone I don’t even know!
He backed out saying, he was gonna buy me dinner and hrump…hrump….he understood of course. I said perhaps we could get to know each other over the phone for a while…..
So I ended the conversation and thought to myself, ‘How am I gonna get out of this one?’
He just wasn’t going to make the cut. He told me on the phone he was on disability, (a word for lazy) he looked fine at Lowes and very capable. He said he was divorced and had two young kids, (i have already raised mine…) He cursed every other word, (not my style). So I was trying to back out of this new guy anyway….
Then late last night at 11:30pm, I got a phone call from a woman asking me, ‘Why I was texting her boyfriend?’
WHAT? ~~~ I was the OTHER WOMAN?
Not gonna happen.
I ended up talking to her and reassured her this was going nowhere and that I was a good Christian woman etc. She had nothing to fear from me, but I recommended she leave him, for no one deserves a lying cheating man!
I told her she deserved better and she started to tear up on the phone. I know she was broken hearted and she was fortunate that she got me on the phone. They had been dating for 3 years. I actually think I helped her to see the truth and calmed her down.
We talked about how we single women need a web-site that only women are allowed to join where after we date a BUM, we can warn other women about him out there on the loose. We laughed that I would be a millionaire over night!
(I think such a web site is needed but illegal, pout Slander and all!)
Well ~ that’s my adventure for this week!
Read it and learn ladies and gentlemen. People are not always who they seem to be ~ use your discernment and err on the side of caution and safety!
