He stunk of BO she said it was disgusting. How can he expect someone that smells that revolting even think he could pick up? Why even bother she finished with.
Perhaps he didn’t know that he smelt he replied. Perhaps he had come straight off the farm or straight from work. Urgh I don’t care it was disgusting. He smelt disgusting. I wanted to vomit she continued. How could he even think he could pick someone up she said again. So what did you do he said to her. I told him to go away she replied.
He finished with ring through now with your best pick up line.
We were listening to the radio station hosted by who I now affectionately call the young and ignorant and I no longer listen to them on principal. I can also call them that because it’s my blog and due to the fact I’m not mentioning their names no one is hurt in the retelling of this story.
She repeated the radio stations number again asking for their best pick up lines again retelling her story.I was trying to work out was she trying to be funny?…Did she think this was funny was retelling her story of her limited interaction with this young man and his BO all to encourage listeners to ring in..
I turned to my husband we were in the car on the way to the city to pick up the camper we had hired… How dare she I said ?
How much gut’s does it take a guy to walk up to a woman in a bar let alone a bunch of women? I said and what if he didn’t know he smelt badly I said? He could be a dick but he could also be a nice guy she didn’t allow him the opportunity. How dare she now humiliate him like that on the radio? Isn’t it bad enough she did it at the nightclub? How dare she use her semi fame to make fun of him like that..and you certainly don’t announce it on public broadcast as second rate comedy fodder for your listeners.
I’m going to ring them I said tell them what a horrible rude person she is and its unacceptable. Go on my husband said like a dare thinking I never would call but I was wild.
So I did. I called. I was so quick to the phone I was the first caller.
I started to shake with anger and nervousness. My chin quivered and I feared I would cry; not unhappy tears, no those are rare for me it was the fact that I was nervous and so bloody angry at her…it was fortunate my husband was with me because one look at me and I sucked up that cry and continued. I was calling for the men like him…the ones who have no self belief in themselves…and to tell this little girl this was wrong.
What’s your best pick up line she said…
I don’t have one I said what I am calling about is you and how your humiliating that man I said. The one who tried to pick you up well may be you may be it was one of your friends. It took a lot of guts for him to do that I said to her. Well she retorted he shouldn’t have bad BO. He may not have known, it could be his genetic make up I said, he could have tried to fix it and can’y.
So she said…I interrupted I was on a roll and what makes you think he was trying to pick you up perhaps it was one of your friends…you didn’t even allow them the opportunity for them to meet to get to know him I said you sent him away. It takes guts to do that to walk up to a bunch of women in a night club like that and now you’re public humiliating him on radio. I am assuming your single I said. What I was going to say was no bloody wonder I didn’t I thought better of it. Instead I said I had a friend he tried to fix his body odour problem and he couldn’t so consequently it plagued him and you know what I said it’s because of comments like that he topped himself and you’re doing it on the radio.
Well that’s not what we are talking about her co host interrupted me we are looking for your best pick up lines.
Then they hung up on me.
I was embarrassed my temper had got the better of me and that I was about to personally attack her for her actions.
Yet ridiculously I have often wondered do I owe her an apology for attacking her at her work place. Should I have handled it better or sent her a letter . Did I over react?
I asked my husband…don’t worry he said they have that 10 second delay and yes she dropped the BO story to your best pick-up line..but still I wonder had I gone too far…
