Made a phone call and left a message, the story was a laugh from the beginning

A week or two ago I went and saw The Hangover on a Saturday afternoon. Very funny movie. I watched it at an outdoor shopping mall where Girl Who Won't Be My Girlfriend likes to hang out. As I left the theater and walked to my car, I saw her car in the parking garage. I gave her a call to see if she wanted to meet up.

She didn't pick up.

I didn't leave a message because I was just going to go along on my way, but knowing that she likes to hang out and study in a nearby coffee shop, I thought that I'd walk over and say hi real quick*. So I called her again. This time I left a message saying, "Hey, I just saw you parked near me, so I'm going to stop by real quick in case you're there. I'd like to say hi."

I went to the coffee shop.

She wasn't there.

I walked back to my car.

Hers was gone.

I couldn't help but think that she hurried and left because I said I was stopping by. I called her again and left a message telling her that I was sorry I missed her, and to give me a call.

Nothing says "stalker" quite like that sequence of events**.

It made me feel a lot like Mikey***:








*I realize how pathetic this makes me look.

**Even though it was just coincidence***.

***But at least I wasn't wearing a wife beater.

****I swear!

you should probably stick with just ONE stalker like phone call day per episode. Just sayin'.....

I'm sure it was just an unfortunate series of events that made it look like she was running away. Honest.....

it's only stalkerish if you've done it before. Please say you haven't done it before. :/

Dude,

Can you show us some pictures of her from your Shrine so readers can tell whether you're a demented stalker or one with refined tastes?

Preferrably a nekkid one.

Ha. Great story & that scene from 'Swingers' still makes me cringe and want to rip through the screen and take the phone away from him. They can do damage.

Yeah, there's never any good reason to call a THIRD time, and anything after that is just truly creepy.

I love that you're now a stalker. LOVE IT!
ps- I can only get to your damn blog via IE again! WTF???- I swear you do it to torture me.

Funniest movie! I love it...and you're probably right...she's avoiding you...in fact she was probably hiding in her car and saw yours so hid hoping you wouldn't see hers...lol But Amber is right....NEVER call the 3rd time

What did you think of The Hangover? I found it really depressing-- possibly because I saw it when I was hungover.

I think, that you commit an error. I can prove it. Write to me in PM, we will talk.
