There are a million reasons to have to apologize to someone and sleeping through a lunch date is one of them.
This happened to my friend Molly, but she broke the norm when she decided to apologize in person, at the guy’s apartment.
WHAT COULD GO WRONG??
Molly met Joseph right after she got dumped by a guy she really liked.
She was out listening to live music to escape her heartbreak and didn’t expect one of the cute band members to start flirting with her after the set.
They started talking about college football and right then they made plans to go watch a college football game together the very next day.
It seemed like a good idea. Molly had tickets and wasn’t very well bringing her EX anymore.
She and Joseph got along great and did I mention he was cute and in a band?
Joseph gave her his address and the next morning, Molly picked him up from his apartment.
They spent the entire day together drinking beer, FLIRTING, MAKING OUT, hanging out with her friends and rooting for the home team.
They got along so well that Joseph spent the night at Molly’s place that night.
The next morning he said he had to leave early to “take care of some things.” He said they should meet for lunch.
Seeing her two days in a row??
This guy must have really liked her!
He certainly seemed to. They literally spent 24 hours together after first meeting Friday night.
Molly told him lunch sounded great, but she fell back asleep after he left and when she woke up, she had slept through their lunch date completely.
And now she was running late for her job at a restaurant.
Molly looked at her cell phone and frowned. She definitely missed their lunch date by over an hour, but he had not texted her asking where she was.
She thought he must have been upset with her.
Feeling guilty and slightly hungover, Molly decided to pay him a visit on her way to work...just to say that she was sorry about lunch, and that she had a really nice time with him that weekend.
...KNOCK KNOCK KNOCK!
When Joseph answered the door, he looked at her wide-eyed, in a very, “I just soiled myself” kind of way.
“I walk in, and there’s a chick sitting at his table,” Molly describes.
Joseph did his best to play off the situation, hahaha, introducing the two without titles or anything else descriptive.
Molly, this is Jane. Jane, this is Molly, without explaining who Jane was or who Molly was or that he SPENT THE NIGHT AT MOLLY’S THE NIGHT BEFORE.
Spoiler alert: Jane was NOT his sister.
After a few “What’s going on here?” questions from Jane, it was revealed that she was his FIANCÉE.
...Who apparently was out of town to celebrate a bachelorette party that weekend.
It was THEIR apartment!
And here Molly was about to APOLOGIZE to him!!
Instead, Molly had to apologize to Jane, saying she had NO IDEA he was engaged (gross) because he was hitting on girls at bars after his gig, spending the night and asking them to lunch.
Taking advantage of a fiancée-free weekend!
Wasting ZERO time getting into bed with someone else!
Molly stood there, awkward.
What can you possibly say in this situation??
What do you do???
Jane knew what to do.
Molly said that despite her small frame, Jane suddenly FLIPPED OVER THE KITCHEN TABLE at Joseph, screaming at him.
FLIPPED OVER A TABLE!
Probably broke some (lunch) dishes, too.
Absolutely no apologies.
