Set Up By A Co-Worker (never a good idea)

The first, and LAST,blind date I ever went on was a complete disaster. A coworker decided to set me up with her brother in law because she wanted to double date to the movies one weekend, so I agreed.
So it began.....the guy pulls into my driveway the night we were to go out in the oddest vehicle I'd ever been picked up in in my life. It was one of those electrical company trucks with the lift basket thing in the back. I thought maybe it was his work truck, but no, turned out he was unemployed....which would explain why the truck was spray painted with really bad attempts at red and purple flames.
Then he gets out of the truck. Now, I don't want to sound shallow....I try really hard not to get hung up on looks. But....
He had the biggest, gnattiest blonde curly fro I'd ever seen in my life, he had glasses thicker than pop bottles, and to top it off he was wearing a ripped up dirty t-shirt, ripped up jeans, and it looked like he hadn't showered for awhile.
But...I promised my friend, so I continued on with the date.
So, we catch up with the others and head to the theater. My friend's husband drives, so this guy decides he can drink, and proceeds to take out a fifth of vodka and pretty much inhale it before we even get to the theater. The movie starts, and he immediately begins making cat calls, loudly, at every good-looking woman on the screen, while trying to lean over and kiss me (unsuccessfully). About 10 minutes into the movie, he leaves, apparently to go to the bathroom....but he doesn't come back. I quite honestly was just fine with that.
However, about a half an hour later, one of the ushers comes down and informs us that my date has passed out on the roof of his brother's truck in the theater parking lot. So, we leave.
All the way home he was puking in the back seat, I don't think he once made it out the window (thankfully I was in the front seat, and only lived 5 min. from the theater...which was STILL 5 min. too long as far as I was concerned.)
That was, without a doubt, THE worst date I've ever been on in my life.
He even called me up the next day and asked me out again! Ha!! Like that was going to happen.
