Driving Mrs. Daisy
Alright so I went on a date yesterday with my boyfriend of 4 months. My day had been very hectic so imagine my relief when he said "I'm taking you out". Yay! some fun EXACTLY what I needed. He then asks if I would mind driving. ummm? I thought you were taking me out? but okay yeah I can drive. We arrive at the restaurant order drinks then his phone rings. He then proceeds to check his voicemail. He goes outside to return the call and chit chats for a long time. I start to wonder if he is going to come back. Eventually like 10-12 min later he does. I'm like is everything okay? yeah it wasn't an emergency. I try to get through dinner though it's clear I'm upset. Call me old fashioned but taking a long call at dinner when it isn't an emergency is just straight rude. The rest of the dinner is really awkward as a result. After dinner he asks me to stop by Lowe's and Target. I try to manage getting through his errands. He then asks if I can take him to Publix so he can pick up a gift card. At this point I'm completely exhausted (it's been hrs, at one point i had to watch him spend 15 minutes contemplating what caulk he needed). we get back to his place and unload all his purchases. I tell him I'm going home and he responds you don't want to spend more time with me? I responded No I just want to go home. I finally get home and wondered wth just happened to my friday night. I wish I had stayed home and painted my nails instead..
