- Another etiquette question. (Epic fail content)
Some of you may have seen that I was in That London on Thursday night. Well, I had a very nice time, the free beer flowed, the free food was scoffed, the we cracked on with the fun. Mosey-ed over to he dance floor, started to throw some shapes. This shape throwing attracted the attentions of a pretty young lady, whom joined me in the shape throwing. Aaaanyway, more beer was drunk, more shapes were thrown, one thing led to another 😉 and we swapped numbers, and went our separate ways.
Fast forward to the next morning and I am thinking of putting my head in a vice, just to distract me from the omghorrible hangover I have developed. As a vice isn’t forthcoming I check my phone, remembering it has an extra number in it, so was going to text my new friend to check she got home ok and how she was feeling.
Except I can’t. Not because the number isn’t there, it is. It just doesn’t have a name attached to it. Can I remember her name? Whadda you think? 3 fails as I see it.
1. Not ending the night with her and I in he same room.
2. Not putting her name in my phone properly, with her number.
3. Getting too drunk to remember a persons name!!!!
So my question, I had fun with my new friend and would like to stay in touch, do I;
1. Text her, come clean, apologise and hope she doesn’t think I’m a ****.
2. Text her, and try and tease a name out of her without her cottoning on….
3. Accept I’ve been a pillock and blown it, hope she texts me, starting with ‘Hi it’s ?????’
I fully accept I deserve a ribbing for this. Carry on…..Posted 6 years agodeadlydarcyMember
Is there still a facility whereby you can send a voicemail without having to ring?
Then switch your jellybone off and hope she rings back and leaves you a voicemail back starting “Hey, it’s Victoria, but during the day, I’m actually [deep voice]Victor[/deep voice]”.Posted 6 years agodeadlydarcyMember
What to do – phone her number, but hang up long before she has the chance to answer it. She calls you back – ask who it is.
And if she doesn’t ring back, keep calling, Don’t stop. Ten every fifteen minutes should be about tolerable. Won’t put her off at all.Posted 6 years agoNZColMember
At least you avoided the situation my ‘friend’ had a few weeks back.Posted 6 years ago
Met young lady, had night fun back at his place, woke up – no idea of her name. She hopped into shower. He, being a smart boy got her purse and was looking for a driving licence to get name. She reappeared mid rifle of said purse. At that point it really is a no win situation
“Hello sorry no I am not stealing your money”
“I can’t remember your name so was looking through your purse”
God I laughed. He was and is mortified.
On the bright side they are still seeing each other and she introduces him as “The guy that went through my purse and stole all my money”
Many thanks chaps! Think ill go with the text and sign with my name approach, then if that back fires i’ll come clean.
The thought has just occurred that she may not remember my name either…
Google has not been its usual, helpful self 🙁 neither have others that were at the do (was hoping for messages saying they saw me with the mystery lady, no such luck).
Edit. Matt_oab, that actually crossed my mind before I posted, think I need a break :-sPosted 6 years ago
