She probably wrote the same ad about you

I admit it. When I need a pick-me-up, I read Missed Connections on Craigslist. About 25% are real, honest-to-God, “we had a moment there, I wish I had asked for your number.” Another 25% are simply, “hey hot lady! I love you!” At least 25% are, “I’m lonely, wanna sleep with me? Anyone?” And the rest are a mix of misplaced personal ads (“Married guy looking for married woman, no singles please”), chain letters (“if you post this on every CL board, you will have sex tomorrow”), searches (“has anyone seen Anna Montez? She was my roommate and we lost touch”), and the like.

But never in my history of reading MC have I read a preemptive, “it wasn’t a missed connection, you hag.”

    Yowza. What an ass.

  3. kb says:

    hey, you inspired me to surf my local craigslist and I found one too!

  4. Becca says:

    Oh, kb, that is cold.

  5. Pious B says:

    I knew there was a reason why we’re friends/cousins; I check Missed Connections all the time. Unfortunately, no one is ever looking for me.

  6. Becca says:

    Well, I know this person wasn’t. For starters, you’re hot. And second, I’ve never seen you disheveled in my life. Or dishelved, even.

  7. Pious B says:

    That’s ’cause we’ve never spent Yom Kippur together.

  8. Melanie says:

    Well, kb, that guy said “no offense,” so that makes it all ok.

  9. Becca says:

    Pi, my, wouldn’t that be a party? No, I’m serious, I think we could make that into a party.

    Mel, boy howdy! It’s kind of like, “with all due respect, you are one fugly chick and I am so not into you.”

  10. KP says:

    Disheveled and delusional would be a great name for our new band Bec.

    No offense.

  11. GirlNextDoorTN says:

    This is what’s being posted right now in Nashville.

  12. kb says:

    my gosh those nashville people are weird!

  13. Becca says:

    I think I lost it at “but you were different somehow and it wasn’t just your bigger breasts.”
