Mark your calendars
I should introduce you to the Guy from the Office who Hath Not a Clue About Anything Involving Interaction with Other Human Beings. Today was the annual celebration of Guy from the Office who Hath Not a Clue About Anything Involving Interaction with Other Human Beings Asks Curiosa On a Some Kind of Strange Date By Email.
The same thing happened around this same time last year, and around the same time the year before that.
This time he offered to "show you my newly acquired apartment" OR "to go to the movies next week." I must say, although I am a girl who likes to have a choice, neither option is particularily attractive. Rather, the opposite.
I am NOT being mean. Some people just don't get it. At all.
Today we had a seminar. We have a seminar once a week. Every week, we get to hear about how he would do the study if he were actually doing the study under discussion even though it's not HIS study to do. When his mouth opens, everyone, including the professors, hits their mental mute button and starts humming "It's a Small World" to themselves. Believe me, it's a more productive way to spend your time.
This is the THIRD apartment he has invited me to see. This is the THIRD time I have ignored his invitation. Ever heard of three strikes, you're out?
I know, you can't blame a guy for trying. Once.
Twice is overkill.
Thrice is asking to be beaten to death with a fermented herring.
