About two months before my wedding, I was shopping at Target when I walked past a guy who looked vaguely familiar. Apparently I was familiar to him, too, because he did a double-take and then stopped walking and gave me a strange look. I followed suit, and we stood there, each trying to figure out who the other was, until he finally said, "You look really familiar, do I know you?" I responded with, "I think so... I'm not sure from where, but you look familiar to me, too." He suggested a few places we might have met, none of which were familiar to me, so I offered the following suggestion: "I used to work at (name of grocery store)."
"Oh, yeah!" he said. "I gave you my phone number when you were working, and you never called me!"
My face turned bright red, I offered some sort of apology, he made uncomfortable conversation for a few minutes ("didn't you used to wear your hair differently?"), I held up my left hand to show that I was engaged, and then I rapidly exited Target.
And that, my friends, is why you shouldn't just arbitrarily hand out your phone number to a girl working at the grocery store and then leave before she has a chance to tell you that she's dating the man of her dreams.
