Here is another great piece by my dear friend @AmyDetRiotGirl . Gotta love the honesty!
Sometimes men ask me why women are so scared to give our numbers out. I would think that the answer to this would be obvious, but since there still seem to be people out there who think that women are just being uppity or cold by not wanting to share the digits, I thought I’d share a few of my worst stories on this topic.
• “I have a boyfriend”
A friend of mine and I were waiting for a transfer one night out at Broadway Junction. He fell asleep on me, while I stayed up and played games on my cell phone. As I sat there minding my own business, a man approached me and said “hey baby girl, how’s you night?”
I said “it’s fine. I’m trying to beat this level.”
He said “oh well, if you want to stop for a minute, I’d really like to say hi and maybe get your number.”
I said “I’m in the middle of this level. I’m sorry, but I’m trying to concentrate right now.”
He said “girl, that’s just a game. I’m offering you something better.”
I said “no, really. I want to finish this level. And, anyway, I have a boyfriend.” as I pointed to my friend, who helpfully started snoring as he rolled over on my shoulder.
And, here it comes, the most dumbfounding response ever… “But, baby… HE’S ASLEEP.”
