THE WINNING LINES #12: Tales from my Dating Days

I popped into my mate’s workplace, and he introduced me to his colleague Rob. I recognised Rob instantly, but apparently he didn’t remember me:

Rob: “Hey there, nice to meet you.”

Me: “Ah, Rob. You don’t recognise me, do you?”

Rob: (somewhat nervously) “Err, sorry, could you remind me?”

Me: “Sure! Two years ago, we had a blind date. We went to see Blur together. I don’t think you were very impressed with me because, three songs into the gig, you told me that didn’t feel well and had to go home. I never heard from you again. Remember me now?”

Rob: “Oh god.”

Me: “It’s been lovely catching up with you again!”
