keeping it real

In passing at work:

Hey there, beautiful lady. I keep seeing you around and keep wanting to ask you out. You got a man? Because even if you do I'd love to take you out. And I'd treat you nice, real nice. A real date. In fact, I'd take you to Wendy's. You can order anything you want. How'd you like that, little lady? Anything you want. I'll show you a good time. Wendy's. And that's not the cheap stuff either.

Indeed.

Wow. I think I would have spit coffee through my nose if I had been on the receiving end of that proposal.

theflyingmum said...

Ok, so what exactly is "the cheap stuff?"
A sweet offer, nonetheless, (little lady.)

slouching mom said...

i'm guessing the cheap stuff is mcdonald's? y'know, because of its dollar value meals?

painted maypole said...

hubby and I ate at Wendy's for lunch. he even asked me out. but the approach was a wee bit different

Janet said...

I worked at Wendy's in high school so I speak with great authority when I say: "It ain't the good stuff."

KC said...

Okay. Now I want fries and a Frosty.

flutter said...

That wasn't followed with a slap on the ass, was it?

Kyla said...

I agree with KC. Fries and a Frosty...mmmm. But alas, my stomach will not allow it.

But what a pick up line. SOMK!

meno said...

Anything you want? At Wendys? Girl, dump your man and go on the date.

kgirl said...

mmm... frostys. he sounds like quite a catch, jen.

Family Adventure said...

Classy!

Heidi :)

What's SOMK?

Julie Pippert said...

Now there's a compliment for you!

kiki said...

I'd date you too. I know a good one when I see her. xo

cce said...

This reminds me that My Better Half actually first proposed by offering me a Big Gulp rather than a ring.
This must have made your day.

Jenn said...

You didn't jump all over that?

What's wrong with you?

Oh, The Joys said...

Feeling FROSTY?

Mad Hatter said...

Ooooo, Jess already took the Frosty pun.

Alls I can say is J had better watch out.

wordgirl said...

He's feeling the love in a Supersized way! Wow! I'm bowled over by his taste. "Klassy!"

b*babbler said...

Cheap stuff = Taco Bell? Just a guess...

And here I was grumbling the other day cause no one notices me any more...

Beck said...

I've had worse offers...

Jen M. said...

That is one mighty sweet offer.

QT said...

Wendy's has some good shit, dontcha know ~ good times.

we_be_toys said...

Whoa, big spender! Could be worse; could be McDonalds, right? I think I dated this guy's brother in my past life (the life before kids). i love the moniker, "dumbassery" - I might have to borrow it from you!

Blog Antagonist said...

Taken in the proper context (and I think I'm assuming rightly that this was a client, not a co-worker) that was an incredibly sweet and charming offer. And I think it's touching that a person of such meagre means was willing to dig deeply to show you a good time.

mamatulip said...

That's sweet...Wendy's is top of the line when it comes to fast food.

Amy Y said...

Isn't it fun to get a lil attention though? Even if it is in poor (putting it nicely) taste? No pun intended.
Well, not much. hee hee :)

Kelly said...

Sometimes a Frosty is just what the doctor ordered.

Wayfarer Scientista said...

Don't you just "love" these. Sigh. I got one last week who wanted to take me out because I had such "purty teeth".

Jennifer said...

Of all the crappy fast food places, Wendy's is my (reluctant) favorite. Baked potatoes!

patches said...

Real nice of him not to confine you to the dollar menu on the first date.

Mrs. Chicky said...

I particularly liked the part where he said "You got a man? Because even if you do I'd love to take you out." Ah, romance.

Ally said...

Anything you want from the Wendy's menu! Where to you begin?

Sober Briquette said...

My daughter says her Grammy "can" take her to Wendy's because it's Grammy's favorite restaurant. Grammy can't be wrong.

crazymumma said...

dude.

he TOTALLY gets points for trying.

Hell. I've seen ya. I'd ask you on a date.

Little Monkies said...

I think there's a whole new marketing strategy in this for Wendy's...can you picture the ads now?

;)

FENICLE said...

That's not the cheap stuff either. McD's has a dollar menu....and Wendy's is 99 cents little lady!

The Chick said...

Ok, Jen. Here's a litte snippet you may appreciate.....I saw an interview with John Edwards once in which he said that he and his wife go to Wendy's every year for their anniversary. Sounds like a good offer NOW, huh?

Denguy said...

Aw, you're just loved all around, aren't you?

Lawyer Mama said...

Well, that's an attractive offer.

mitzh said...

I love Wendy's more than McD's...

Christine said...

well, you could get a frosty. that might save the date.
