Awkward

Can we talk about something for a sec?
You know that series awkward and awesome?
Well this was just awkward...

I was walking down the street to my car after a work meeting the other day
And this guy comes up
And starts this convo....


Guy: Are you a neurologist?
Me: No
Guy: You just walked out of a neuroscience building
Me: I had a meeting there
Guy: What do you do?
Me: I'm an event planner



It goes on from here
I'm thinking he's going to ask for directions
Or has a question about the campus
Or maybe he's just being friendly
And I don't want to be a B

Then the bomb drops
Guy: Can I take you out sometime?
WHAT THE...
Me: {jaw drop...stammer...} Um I don't think that my husband would like that
Guy: {clearly irritated} Oh, you have a husband?  Well bye then.


Also can we talk about the fact that this picture (and the one below) popped up when I typed "awkward" into Pinterest and they totally make me giggle? 

And so I walked away, wondering what the heck had just happened.
How, in a 45 second conversation, he felt it was appropriate to ask someone he never met on a date
It was part hilarious, part ridiculous, part flattering and part revolting.

Has this ever happened to you?
How did you react?

  1. That just made me laugh out loud!! That's never happened to me...but I can just see it play out. That IS awkward! As far as awkward moments go, I have a friend that seriously ANYTHING and EVERYTHING that could be awkward - happens to her. I always enjoy her stories she has for me everyday. Did you tell your husband?? I'd be interested to see what he said! haha
