Don’t let this happen to you! Some folks have their hearts in the right place, but completely fail at Valentines Day romance. Some are pranks, others are just awkward, and some are businesses that completely missed the point. Oh, and a few adorable kids’ attempts. They’re all funny. Here’s one story.
My fiancé, a guy, and I, a girl, wanted to go see Fifty Shades of Grey on Valentine's Day with another couple, good friends of ours who told us a few days ago that they might want to go see it with us. Anyway, this morning I texted the girl, who is listed in my phone as Ashley R., "Do you want to go see Fifty Shades of Grey on Valentine's Day?" in order to figure out our plans. The response: "I'm going to [city across the state] to visit my mom for her birthday." ...Ashley's mom's birthday is not this weekend.
I looked at the contact name I had texted--Adam R.--and realized that I had just asked my boss to go with me to see Fifty Shades of Grey on Valentine's Day.
