I Thought I Was Special

Ladies, if you ever find yourself at BWI airport in Baltimore, MD please beware that there is a serial flirter on the loose.

Last year I had to travel to Massachusetts for business. While at the airport waiting for my flight to board a gentleman (and I use that term loosely) about 20 years my senior approached me and began a conversation. My thoughts the whole time were of begging him to leave me alone. Vanish already! But alas, he never did. He kept assaulting my ears with his incessant incoherent babbling and my nose with his foul breath. Yeah guy, I want you all over me.

Thankfully the time for my plane to board arrived and I was off never to see this person again. Fast forward approximately 10 months or so and a coworker is returning home from a long weekend in Miami (I hate her right now). She begins to tell me about this short, older gentleman with salt and pepper hair that approached her at baggage claim and asks if he could take her out.
Hmmmmm. This is beginning to sound pretty familiar.

Me: Did he give you a plain white card?
Coworker: OMG! He sure did. The plainest card ever.
Me: Is his name Richard?
Coworker: YES!!

Damn Rich, I thought I was special.

Awww - but you are special Tee! Sadly, his assaulting people with heinous breath is enough cause to tell him to scram.

You are special, he must have sensed she knew you and was trying to get at you from a new angle. Just a thought.

I'm with "imbeingheldhostage". He knew you were spesh.

He just didn't know how to get to ya.

Now that is funny -both comical and also, of the "sing the do-do-do-do music" variety too! What are the odds for something like that happening anyway?

Just like the economy finding a date must be harder and harder these days. Poor Richard! LOL

What a freak though but I do admire his efforts. Enough to call security on his ass.

Ahhhh dayum! Rich is a playa playa! LOL

Freckle Face Girl said...

I wonder if his approach ever works. Strange!

Amber said...

Maybe he was still reeling from your rejection and just needed a back-up plan. :-)

I suppose he went to the baggage claim to pick up his bags, and it turned out that the airline lost them. So he decided to see what else (who else) he could pick up, so he wouldn't go home empty-handed.

As for the breath, I think you have encountered someone with a real life superpower.

Any chance you can get this guy's name added to the Department of Breath Security's "no fly list" ?
