When I was in 11th grade (shortly after the end of the Spanish-American War,) I remember calling a girl and asking her for a date. Her reply was, "Oh, I'd love to go out on Friday night, but that's the night I need to wash my hair! I'm so sorry!") As young and naive as I was at the age of 15, even I knew that was a horrible load of horse manure she had just dumped on me.
What is the stupidest, most lame, laughable excuse you have ever been given when the object of your interest rejected your request for a date?

When you mentioned the Spanish-Amerivan war that made me think of Bonanza. I believe when the show ended they said little joe would go to fight in the Spanish- American war. But dang good to know you were there in the late 1800s. 😆
Wow those were simpler times to reject someone so you could wash your hair. I remember seeing Betty do that a few times in Father Knows Best. Was she really pretty? Did women have personalities back then? How tv portrayed it, it felt like women were just there but didn't really have a personality they were nothing without a husband.
I remember I asked this guy I liked out to prom in high school. He said something really confusing like he's working and he has to check his schedule and see if he can go. He had me convinced, I didn't realize it was a straight up no.
I thought he had to legit check his work schedule and see if he could make it. So I waited a week and asked again and he was like still he has to check his work schedule and I was like geez you had a week to check it... lol just joking. No, I knew. Finally I realized oh! He's saying no. I don't know why I didn't get it the first time.
There was another time where I really liked this guy I had in my martial arts class. I asked for his number and I remember he was really shocked. I think I might have said we should hangout too and he was like, "I need to check out my work schedule." But he still gave me his real number so that confused me.
I still held out thinking he may be interested. I did the three day rule of waiting and then I texted him and he never replied back. Then I realized he wasn't interested.
But then like 3 or 6 months later he texted me a Happy Halloween. I had deleted his number by then and I didn't recognize the number so I asked who it was texting me.
He acted all self-centered like "Obviously it's me who else." I realized oh it's him and the acknowledgment on top of it that he is egotistical. So I acted like I didn't know him I was like, "Which one?" And that was it he never replied again it was too beneath him/pissed him off or it shattered his ego too much.
But I acted like I didn't know him I guess to give the impression that he isn't the greatest thing since sliced bread since I don't remember him. But you know I wish I just didn't reply instead of acting like I didn't know him that would have been better in giving him a taste of his own medicine. Yup... dating can sometimes be hard.
These show you mentioned were in the 60's. You have to be older than 28. I never even heard of Father Knows Best.
@DubiousIntentions lol I grew up on those TV shows from my parents living in the past. But I didn't mind living in the past, those TV shows are from simpler times. I do know my fair share of the older TV shows and I actually really enjoy them.
@DubiousIntentions well girlfriend go check it out. I think father knows best is on prime video or Hulu.
And you really look at these older shows instead of more recent ones? OK then.
@DubiousIntentions Maybe she binge watches Nickelodeon?
Yes, Father Knows Best is from the late 1950's and early 1960's.
@DubiousIntentions I watch all kinds of TV shows. I watch the newer ones too. The just finished the last of us actually. Which I actually played that game when it first came out
@olderandwiser I haven't watched Nickelodeon since the early 2000s lol I watch other TV shows. I don't know why its so shocking that I like the older TV shows too. 😅
I'm not shocked.
