Okay... so I shared my little story the other day, about the creep at the bar... here’s another story for ya... as fresh as yesterday afternoon... talk about not a lot of fish out there!!  But I’m thinking about what Cheryl wrote (Dailyblonde) said, it’s never too... late and we can’t give up hope.

Hope it makes you laugh!!!

Today on my way home from work, I decided to go thru the Starbucks drive-thru and pick myself up a little jolt of caffeine... A Pumpkin spice treat YUM... but the drive thru line was hurrendous.. What the heck I decided to park the car & walk in.  I parked my car next to this nice luxury vehicle... a man was sitting in it, on the phone.  At that moment, out of this car emerges this man who resembled a young Richard Gere (think Pretty Woman).  This man is in a suit... (hmm a man in a suit).  He says hello, I return his hello with ‘my pearliest of white’ smile.  He strikes a conversation by asking me how do I like driving the Volvo (its the car I drive)... umm “I like it .. really hugs the road“, I say (isn’t that what a guy would say?)  Both going into Starbucks he opens the door... a perfect gentleman, and “thanks” I say.

We walk in.. he allows me to go ahead of him on line (you know the gesture of the arm pointing twds the line, “please ladies first” he says. (Ritz likes a gentleman the world has very few of them). BUT I’m sticking to my new set of RULES.. dreams... goals... FIRST and no dating!!!  There is a LONG line at Starbucks ... which leads to of course MORE conversation.  I left my work ID on .. so he looked at it and asked if I worked by JFK (Airport in NY)?  “Yes I do as a matter of fact work in that area“, I say.  Turns out his firm has an office in the area. “Firm? Are you an attorney?” I ask.. no, CPA he says. (whew j/k) Apparently Mr. Too good to be True, has recently moved into my town after his divorce ... to be closer to his son...  I’m telling myself.. this is just pleasant conversation... I’m ordering my coffee, and going home! We are not exchanging #s.  

We order our coffee... and he takes out his business card. And here we goooo...... he starts by saying, I would love to (not like, he said WOULD LOVE TO) take you to lunch sometime, you think you would be interested?”  I hesitate.. he sees that I’m hesitating... so he says, “Why don’t we do this, we can talk over the phone, you can get to know me and then you can grace me with the pleasure of your company.  What do you say?“.. seriously I’m thinking nothing seems to be wrong with this man, right???  Lunch is harmless, isn’t it?  The man said we WILL TALK FIRST!!  So I said, “that sounds lovely, I’ll call you.” (yep I said LOVELY)... he smiled (did I mention this man looked like Richard Gere??) and said “Great, I’m looking forward to hearing from you.”    

Our coffee order is ready.  We are about to part ways when he grabs hold of his cup by the lid and drops his entire cup of coffee!!! It’s all over his suit, all over the floor.  And this is when  it happens.. Ladies and Gentlemen let me present to you  

the vulgarity that started to POUR out of this man’s mouth!!!  “What the F***?!!! Goddamn it!!!  Don’t your Effn people know how to put lids on these EFFN cups??? HUH, HUH?  Now look at my suit? You!! (he points at the poor kid who made the coffee) .. go run and get the manager out here, he is paying for my dry cleaning bill!!”  (I’m mortified by the way... how can someone get this enraged over having spilled his coffee... instead of wanting to help clean it up).  Not knowing what to do (option RUN OUT RITZ) I grab napkins to give him, he looks at me and says “THX honey (discarding the napkins by throwing them behind him on the pick up counter) but can you pls find out.. Where is the EFFN MANAGER???!!!”  I looked around as if, I was trying to identify WHO HE JUST CALLED HONEY, AND BARKED ORDERS AT?

At this point, I am waiting for some reality tv crew to come out and tell me I’ve JUST been on a hidden camera tv show... not seeing the camera crew..  

This guy went from Richard Gere to IKE TURNER!!! Whew... so I politely put his card on the counter next to his napkins ... and walked out...  his face PRICELESS.  Thanks buddy now I have to find a new starbucks!!

Moral of the Story:  Don’t talk to StRaNgErS (even if they look like Richard Gere) LMAO

      That was the universe telling you to stick to your plans, stay focused,... or I'd turn back if I were you!
      Hang in there girl.
      Peace.

    • Good girl.....I wouldn’t put up with that potty mouth for one  second!!!  What a real jerk!!!  That was a true blessing ...him dropping the coffee.  You need to thank the kid behind the counter for not putting on the top good....saved you a lot of energy....and time.

    • I’m not sure about a SATC episode, but there was definitely a Friends episode much like this!

      And Ben Stiller played the role to the hilt.

      ritzi, I’m glad the cosmos decided to show you this cad’s true colors before he could weasel his way into... well, ANYthing of yours. ;)

    • I think the episode of SATC involved Charlotte and some ivy-leaguer who seemed sooo charming and then blew a gasket.

    • Maritza(that is such a pretty name)-

      I am laughing so hard that I have tears coming down my face.  They say laughter is good medicine and I thank you because I am having a bad pain day and that helped.

      It was good you didn’t have to wait longer to find out what an ass he cound be.  I hate people that get upset over stuff like that when life is really too short.  

      The outside of the package sounded pretty; but what was inside surely was not!!!

      Hugs-
      Dianne

    • Gees why are people such animals.  I can see why he is divorced.  And seems like when you are calm with that type, that is when they get the wind knocked out of them.  I love what you did, and sounds like exactly what I would have done.  Although, I would have let the entire shop see it.  Keep the faith. There are still good ones out there. I found one a couple of years ago and I ain’t letting go.  I will bet you any amount of money that he wasn’t really divorced either.  He wanted you to call him at work?  He gave you a business card? Sounded like a sleeper to me anyway.  Happy Holidays everyone!
