I met this guy on tinder. He was charming, handsome, and very well off financially. We messaged for about a week and decided to go out for a movie, and if that went well maybe to dinner. I promised myself I would never actually meet up with anyone on tinder and He was quite a few years older than I (me being 18, him 26), so I was a little timid to go through with it but I said what the hell. Let me first say that when I left my house, I noticed my battery light in my 1994 Chevy pick up truck go on. I brushed it off and figured it would be fine…I was wrong.
I finally get to the movie theatre (which was an hour away) to meet him and things went very well. We decided to go to grab some dinner and he tells me to follow him. We get to the restaurant and it ends up being closed so we get back in our cars and try a different place.
As I’m pulling out of the parking lot my truck stalls. He sees that I’m stopped in the middle of the road and turns around to come help. Neither of us has jumper cables so I get in his car to go to Meijer. We get back to my truck, he jumps it, the charge lasts for maybe 3 minutes and then stalls again. He ends up taking me to Meijer AGAIN to get a new battery and changes it for me right then and there. Once the battery was in and my truck was running fine, we had a quick make out sesh in my truck until we realized it was then 3am and we both had work in the morning. I thanked him, promised him a second date, and went on my way. Half way home the new battery dies and I have to call a tow truck to get me to an auto place near my house. 9 hours and $400 later, I’m finally home and promised myself to never go on a tinder date again.
Oh my gosh, you're the only person I've ever encountered who's noticed the racial biases in the trading community. I mean, it has to do with the larger racism of musical theatre (both the industry and fan communities) but damn, it was exhausting to deal with when I was a trader.
