So, there is this nice older (old) man that works for the same company I do. Not in the same department, but I see him around every few weeks or so.
He always tells these real corny jokes and laughs at himself a lot – just your typical jolly, friendly old man.
One day, I run into him in a stairwell. He stops me and this following exchange takes place:
Old: Good morning, Yeti! Say, can I ask you a question?
Old: Now, I’m 57 years old. You’ve gotta be…what? Mid-20’s?
Yeti: Sure. That’s about right.
Old: Wow, okay, right, that’s young. I am obviously too old for you. But let’s just SAY I were 28. If I were to ask you out, what would you say?
[Insert Dramatically Long Pause]
Yeti: Um…yeah, sure, you’re a funny guy.
Old: Awww….you make an old guy feel so good!!
WHAT do you say in that situation? I am in a lose lose here people. I can’t say NO…it is a hypothetical. What kind of crul person says no in that situation. But by saying yes, I have a somewhat creepy guy thinking “if only I were a bit younger…that girl would totally go out with me!!”
