Your phone is the niftiest thing ever!
My mind is truly boggled by this woman. You're right, living like that must be very stressful indeed.
And I thought meeting a 20-something telling me he was Jesus and that he loved me unconditionally just to then ask if he could dance for me was one of the most strange things that could happen to someone... I think you just beat my weirdness level here!
This is pretty much the daily scenario on the #21 Hayes in San Francisco.
Sure she isn't related to the guy who has this website?http://www.kittyhell.com/
Dorothy's date should have thanked you. At least now he knows.
That is a most surreal scene. But, hey, every one around the Internetz just knows you have put glitters and Hello Kitty on your phone JUST to annoy her.
I pity her date (but maybe you just saved his life?)
I LOVE your phone...I can't understand why anybody would have a problem with it.
It is so tempting to make "If you can't fight Mr Hello Kittyphone maybe you shouldn't be dating me" my new Facebook status message. I'm holding out so far...
Tries valiantly to resist temptation with you.
You saved her date from years of bad behavior I'm sure. The guy should be buying you a hello kitty laptop skin as a thank you. ;)
Sadly the woman sounds much like my baby brother. Add alcohol and he becomes an aggressive crazy loon who likes to maim other folks for random reasons I never really understand. Certain people should not be allowed to drink or interact with other humans while drunk. Idiots. I'm glad the guy had a lot more sense.
Thank God her date wasn't equally insane. o.O
I have customers come in like that all the time at the corporate office supply store I work at. You'd be surprised how many people buying computer parts and paper are rarin' for a fight.
As a misplaced update, I am 90 percent sure I will be working at the local community college as a professor come January; I'm thinking my interactions with people will vastly improve.
Also, kind of wish I'd kept my Hello Kitty Bling so I could send it to you. I'm not a big Hello Kitty fan; I gave the pimped out, rhinestone infested necklace to a Hello Kitty freak friend of mine.
I'm really glad that the date decided not to hit Mr. HelloKittyPhone and that the woman was too entrenched in gender stereotypes to do it herself.
My, folks are weird, aren't they. Maybe she was just deep-down jealous because she didn't have such a fabulous phone. In any case, I'm betting her date was thinking that maybe he shouldn't be dating her, too. Her home life must be very interesting.
Do you think she would have changed her mind had she known how many heavily armed friends you have?
You know, you could write that into a sitcom script and everybody would think it too far-fetched to be true...
Sometimes, life imitates Ricky Gervais.
Can we please have my name removed from this woman?!!
You know, when I read your tweets, I was convinced you were kidding or exaggerating greatly for comic effect.
I mean, *seriously*???????
Dude, it's obvious. She was just jealous, and was trying to get her boyfriend to kick your ass so she could steal your Hello Kitty iPhone cover!!!
Me personally? I've wanted to smack a few people for the unsolicited, smug demonstrations of iphone awesomeness that they have subjected me to, but I never wanted to beat anyone for it.
And one more thing, and this makes me a little sad, because it shows me that I have so much evolving to do, but had I been in your shoes, after a couple of minutes of her bull£&%$ I would have started mad-dogging her boyfriend until he either got her to be quiet/leave or else me and him got into a punch-out.
You understand, of course, I now must call you Mr. Hello Kittyphone at all times? I'll have to change the watermarks on all the photos on my website.
When you said you had a Hello Kitty cover, I took this to be one of the yellow rubber ones.
I have now seen the case on Flickr. I had to turn the brightness down to one first and the screen has pernament holes where the sheer brilliance of the individual glittery bits has caused the screen to melt, but I have now seem the case.
No peusdo-straight man could ever carry that.
Now, I really dislike Hello Kitty and fake swarovski crystals and would never put them on my phone and I might point and laugh at you (or anyone else, regardless of gender, because there's no accounting for taste and many people will p&l at some of the things I do/wear) for having it because I think it's ridiculous but that's your decision, not mine and certainly not a reason for even thinking of violence.
His reasoning is sound though, you put an obnoxious cover on your phone and it will never be accidentally picked up by anyone else. This is why my husband has a bright pink cover for his work phone, it stands out like a sore thumb.
Hello Kitty is made of awesome and if she was offended by it, it's very wrong of her to try and get her date to fight you. She should have done it herself. The modern woman tilts at her own windmills.
This is without a doubt one of the weirdest stories I've heard in a long time. I can't comprehend what it would take for someone to (apparently) feel threatened by a Hello Kitty phone case to the extent that they would want to inflict violence on the owner of said case. I just don't get it.
Cute case, btw.
I, for one, would be curious to see what a bar fight, over Hello Kitty, in XiX would look like.
like giant metal robots fighting and shooting missiles at one another while sky-scrapers collapsed around us.
There's only one way that fight could have gone.
Here's an artist's rendition...
Or because previous attempt didn't work...
Her date is SO lucky you were there with that phone -- getting the psycho warning early before getting way too involved is a good thing.
