People Are Strange

Because I think it's hilarious to procrastinate, I delayed deleting my account on that site where guys pay you to go on a date.  You know, the definition of escorting?

Anyway, some knob offered me $30 to go on a date with him AND he's from San Clemente.  I don't need to explain any further why that is an automatic rejection.  Reason:  Bid too low

Then he IMMEDIATELY came back with $60.  Rejection.  Reason:  Not my type (But between you and me, the bid was still too low.)  Instant new bid at $100.  Rejection but it's getting fun now and I'm intrigued.  Reason:  Not my type

New bid at $101.  That made me laugh.  You can't communicate with these guys unless you accept the bid, so I accept.  I message:  You are persistent.

He starts in with accolades about my picture and my awesome profile.  (It's pretty unconventional and rad.)  He wants to text, so I give him my number.

This is where it all goes downhill.  First he sends me a video taken from his phone of some rock concert.  I ask, "What is that?" and his response is, "Steel panther last night at house of blues!"  I instantly think, I don't give a DAMN.  Oh did I mention earlier he asked about a good place to grab a late breakfast, and I'm already halfway done teaching Block C?

Then I get this (and I detest this):  What are you up to now?  Send me a pic of you!

I don't know what all of the youngsters are up to these days, but sending a picture of myself to a stranger seems tacky, naive, and downright dangerous.

I respond:  Not a big fan of sending pics to people I haven't met yet.  One step at a time.

Ladies and gentleman, I am no prude but if there is one thing I believe in, it's manners.  Manners change from region to region and culture to culture.  This man and I are not from the same region nor the same culture.

His response:  Well for the record we agreed to meet and I spent 6.75$ to message you!  And I have 3 pics on my profile and you have one from far away (not true).  Let's be fair here.

My response:  Uh oh.  I don't think we're going to get along.

He thought my response was hilarious, but I was obviously done.  He sent a few weird pictures and then realized I wasn't interested.  Who raised this man?

On a higher note, Earnest has asked me out and we're trying to meet before I go to San Francisco next Wednesday.  We're having a difficult time matching schedules.  Yes.  I'm really that busy.
