“Cold Shoulder”

manners

It was our first date. We went for coffee, and then to the movies. I got chilly, so I leaned towards him, shivered, and commented that I was cold (what I thought was an obvious signal to put his arm around me). Without even taking his eyes off the screen he said, “So put your jacket on.”

Aftermath: I wanted to walk out right there, but I was his ride home. A drive that should have taken me 20 minutes took less than 10, and I haven’t talked to him since.
