Who is this?

So I was awakened bright and early this morning by the sound of my cell. Yep, it was a text message from a strange number. It went a little something like this:

Stranger: Hey, what's up?
Me: Who is this?
Stranger: Brad*
Me: The same Brad* that canceled on me last minute a few months ago and never called again?
Stranger: Huh? We met at HipHuggers**.
Me: I haven't been there in almost a year.
Stranger: You were with your girls, and I was with one of my boys. I complimented your outfit. We danced, we danced hard. We then exchanged numbers.

By this time, I'm lost...so lost. Who tha??? I can count on one hand how many times I have been to this particular club, and the last time was nearly a year ago. I've never danced "hard" with anyone of interest there, although I have had a couple of decent conversations, sans dancing, there. So I replied:

Me: I can't say I remember dancing "hard" with someone and giving him my number there.
Stranger: LOL. You know this is the 2nd time I've pulled this on you. This is Brad* who canceled!
Me: Um. I was confused.
Stranger: But at least you're smiling now.
Me: Not really smiling.

Please explain why a grown man would play such "pranks".

Because he's stupid.

Really, that's the only thing I could come up with.

Definitely not someone you'd want as a life partner or the father of your babies.

Tee hee...You do crack me up, ecrivian! I like your no nonsense approach to stuff!

jo said...

that dude is just weird. i usually get annoyed with people like that. actually i get annoyed once i ask who you are and you don't straight up tell me.

SaneAndSingle said...

Amen jo! It is annoying, which is why I was baffled when he said, "at least you're smiling"! I mean, why would I be smiling about a man who hasn't called texting me 3 months later, playing a prank? What.ever.

because he's a man...'nuff said!

NotCarrie said...

seriously? I hope you blocked his number now.

Roxy said...

for the love of all that is holy, please do NOT go out with him.

Men who do this are failures in life and grasping for anything.

SaneAndSingle said...

No worries...I will not go out with him! He lost that chance long ago!

I'm not really sure how to block his number on my cell.

First of all, I just caught up on all of your blogs! WOOO HOOO I LOVE THEM!!! (one of my personal faves...period panties...LMFAO)

*Brad??? He makes me sick! His enthusiam would be better appreciated when used along with wine and dinner...what a concept!

I can't explain why a grown man would play pranks, I never have understood those shananigans. But I sincerely hope he learns to do something more productive with his time. Obviously he is capable of texting and maybe should have done so in a more appopriate way throughout the last few months until you could schedule another date. But hey, that's something a REAL man would do. Ya know?

P.S. You never called me back. We need to hang out, drink something alcoholic, replace manholes and dance hard...LMFAO Dance hard???? WTF???

Kate said...

Sounds like a real winner. Does he just randomly go through a list of girls in the hope one of them falls for this and agrees to go out? Ass.

Therapeutic Ramblings said...

Wow...what an idiot.

I've 're-met' people where I've put their number in my phone and their name popped up, but the COMPLETELY random txt....amateur.

Jane said...

wow. maybe it's because i'm young and optimistic, but i didn't realize there were really so many stupid guys out there.

thanks for warning me
