This story is ABSURD.
Hello! Good day! If you are one of the many people in this world who have been on a truly terrible first date, get ready to take a back seat. I’m about to tell you the story of maybe the worst first date known to mankind, brought to you by a viral Twitter thread.
User @itsssraych tweeted a series of photos of her friend, a girl named Bridget Jones (ironic) telling her the story.
Basically, Bridget’s date told her to wear a black dress for their first meeting. Bridget, like any normal person, was a little bit excited about it because she thought it was going to be for a romantic reason.
Unfortunately, she was already in his car when she realized, much too late, that they were actually going to a funeral. A FUNERAL. Her date apologized, explaining that he knew she never would have come along if she knew this is what they were doing. Like, no sh*t, dude.
Bridget said she felt trapped, like she had no way out. Turns out it was his grandmother’s funeral. His f*cking grandmother. People were sobbing inside, so she didn’t want to be rude and ditch. So…she stayed. For the entire funeral.
The guy cried, and she had to comfort him as he grieved in front of his entire family. This man she had never met before. She even met his mom. SHE MET HIS MOM, YOU GUYS.
When he drove her home, she got the backstory. Apparently (ALLEGEDLY) he had a girlfriend and they broke up shortly before the funeral. He had told his whole family about this girl, so he couldn’t just show up to the funeral alone, so he brought poor, poor Bridget.
That’s the end of the thread, but one very very important question remains: Would you have stayed?
