A Funny Story about a Blind Date, Anyone Else?


Back in the late 80s after my divorce, before home computers, I answered an ad in the dating section. At the time my sons were around 9/11 and mischievous little monkeys. They were watching out the front window as I put finishing touches to my make up. 'Mum, he's arrived' they called. Then they continued to tease as he got out of the car with: Ooooh mum, he's really short, ooooh mum he's bald. Then as he got level with the window.....ooooh mum he ain't half got a big nose.

Yeh, yeh, I grinned at them as I got to the front door and opened it, only to find a short bald bloke with a huge nose!

No, I am not a shallow person, but I am quite tall and after an evening in a standing room only pub trying to keep my legs bent i felt one date was enough!

Funniest that happened to me was I was waiting for some female called Norma - the bus she was supposedly arriving on pulled in and only one female got off the bus, not too much like the description I'd been given (actually much better) but wearing the same coloured coat, so I walked up to her and said "I'm David are you Norma?" she said she was, I asked "well where should we go?" she looked a little puzzled and said "I don't know about you but I'm going to play bingo with my sister" at which point I realised it was the wrong Norma and did my best to explain. A few minutes later another bus pulled in and the correct Norma got off.

As we walked off Norma number one was walking towards us with another female, presumably her sister, she said something about thinking it was a blind date and wouldn't have been disappointed if it had been.

Norma number two - didn't seem to like strange women approaching me - I never saw either again.


Lol, that is funnier than mine. I have another which I will tell tomorrow as I am too busy watching a film at present!


Well, my friend wasn't too happy at me meeting a stranger so her and her hubby said they would come to same pub to keep an eye on things. As he pulled up next to my car he said to leave my car, jump in his and carry on to next pub where there was a nice garden. Luckily friend saw this and taking hubby's pint away from him dashed to the car and chased us down the road. I didn't know she had followed but we met up in the ladies then I went back to my date, we had a drink and boom he was off again with friend's hubby having to once again leave his pint!

Finally back at original pub car park she gave me the thumbs up behind his back and they went home. He then asked me to go to London with him as he had to deliver a diamond! He reckoned he was a South African diamond dealer. I muttered excuses about the babysitter and he then opened his boot, gave me a big bunch of flowers (that had wilted by then) and off he went never to be seen again!
