How often does it happen? You’re on the bus, the train, or out having coffee, when someone catches your eye…
You start running through scenarios in your head, desperately trying to come up with a none-laughable way of approaching them, starting a conversation, getting their number…
Well, Redditor archilius777 thought all his birthdays and Christmas had come at once when the woman of his dreams literally fell into his arms whilst he was on a bus. Fortunately for us, he shared his experience on the always amusing ‘Today I Fucked Up’ (TIFU) Reddit thread.
But was this really his lucky day? Let’s hand over to the lad himself to find out…
I am a 21 year old guy. Today I was returning home from a dinner party when along the way I met this girl on the bus. Before moving ahead, let me bring to light the fact that she is very good looking (drop dead gorgeous if I may say so). So we were standing on the bus, due to the lack of empty seats and she was right behind me. For some reason, the driver braked hard and we were all pushed ahead. The girl almost fell on me and I picked her up and asked her if she was okay. She smiled and replied that she was and we got talking about stuff. She was a student and so was I and we both talked a bit about studies and all. We flirted a bit and hit it off; and also exchanged numbers. I was happy about being so lucky… After a great time I arrived at my stop and bid adieu to her and said I will keep in touch. She smiled and waved me goodbye and I got down. I started walking home from the stop, feeling lucky about having met this absolute stunner of a woman… Then out of habit I checked my back pocket. My wallet was gone. (For those wondering, I tried the number and it was a hoax..)
His love interest had swiped his wallet during her stumble. Poor archillus, that’s why your parents told you never to talk to strangers on the bus – even if you fancy the pants off them.
But seriously, be aware of your surroundings in crowded places. Pick pockets are everywhere.
