Last night I went to a dine-in movie with this guy that I met. We’ll call him Slim! We had just finished watching Exodus in 3D.
As we were making our way to his car, I heard the faint ring of a phone. I quickly prayed to the heavens that it wasn’t mine, because, you know, that’s rude. But as the gods would have it, it WAS my phone. And that’s not it. The person calling me, was another guy that I had recently met. He was not only calling, he was Facetiming me!! Whoa there!
I tried to hide my phone before Slim caught on to the disaster that was unfolding in my right hand. However, when my phone rings, it flashes an LED light, over and over again. So Slim noticed! And he asked, “Are you going to answer that?”
I looked at him. I looked at my phone. Looked back at him. Looked back at my phone. Boy was I in a pickle! And unfortunately, the way that FaceTime works is that it will ring until all the cows come home and are fast asleep! It rang incessantly! It wouldn’t stop!! Thus increasing the awkwardness.
There we were, in the elevator. I was trying to ignore the ringing, flashing phone that was going off in my hand, all the while hoping that it would just STOP. Naturally, it didn’t. I started pushing all of the TWO buttons on my iPhone in hopes that it would cease its foolery. It was to no avail!
Eventually, Slim caught a glimpse of the name and photo (curse me for adding photos to my contacts!) of the guy calling. Thus began a line of questioning and jokes about “who is [insert guy’s name] and why won’t you answer? Are you married? Is that your husband?”
After about five minutes of this awkwardness, I ended up just turning my phone off and pretending like none of it ever happened!
Once the night was done and I made my way back home, I checked my phone and I had a text message from Mr. I’m-Going-To-Mess-Your-Date-Up-By-Facetiming-You! He wrote, “Hey! Did you butt dial me? It looks like you were calling me.”
Oopsie! It was me that was Facetiming him that entire time!
*Sigh* This is why I’m single. My life is sabotaging me!
I at least looked nice!
