Segment #2


From our listeners:

Hilary from Facebook: Not waiting to order, assuming the next six months of your life together (being presumptuous), forgetting all the emails and texts beforehand, ordering for your date



Rape jokes (had to put it here from experience)

Mean-spiritedness, disrespect to wait staff

Trying to compete with me in the funny department not as a “witty repartee” but as an actual competition until you say something horrific and/or hurt my feelings

Blatant misrepresentation of yourself
