The Blind Date
George is standing in the rain waiting for his date. It is 1 hour later than their meeting time but Sami hasn’t shown up yet. The rain is getting heavier and he is losing his temper. “Is it possible that she has stood me up?” – George thinks.

 

The story dates back to a wonderful day when George was surfing some websites for “speed-dating services” to find a date. He noticed Sami’s profile. This girl sounds interesting.” – he thought, and he started to chat her up. He spent hours sitting at his desk on the computer whenever she was online. They talked to each other for about 2 months. During that time, George had asked Sami out for a “real date” several times but he was always turned down. Though her refusals really brought him down, he didn’t give up. Finally, Sami agreed to go out with George.

 

And today is their first “real date”. George is dressed up and waiting for Sami. She’s 1 hour… 2 hours late. She doesn’t appear. George walks home in the heavy rain. He is so sad. I will get over it” – he thought – “and never have a blind date again.”
