Today, in the waiting room of the doctor’s office, I overheard the following side of a conversation between a frum guy and a girl he was clearly connecting with for the first time, probably a possible shidduch date. We’ll leave aside that he was calling from a doctor’s office waiting room- the most private place ever!
“I’ve heard that about Beis Yaakov girls. [laughing] I think I’ve seen that video! ‘Beis Yaakov Girls Gone Wild!’”
“No, it’s not a real video.”
“No, I was joking, it’s not a real video.”
“Well, no, they probably don’t really have that.”
“So you said you’re from Florida?”
I somehow don’t have high hopes for this relationship.
frum – religious, usually Orthodox
shidduch – set-up
