A woman had agreed to go on a blind date but was nervous that she wouldn’t like the man so she called her best friend beforehand.
“Hi Sarah, listen I only have a minute,” she said. “I’m about to get picked up for a blind date, can you call me in a half hour just in case it’s going bad?”
The woman’s friend agreed and so she gave herself a quick spray of perfume, checked herself out one more time in the mirror and headed outside to wait for her date.
The man picked her up and they headed to a restaurant. Sure enough after twenty minutes the woman was discreetly checking her watch. After ten more minutes her phone finally buzzed.
She listened for a few seconds, grimly pursed her lips and turned to her date: “I feel terrible, but my grandmother is terribly sick, and I must go home now.”
The date grinned before saying: “No problem! In a few more minutes my dog was going to get run over!”
