Saturday evening in the 220D

I went on a date Saturday evening.
I am driving down the road to meet up with my date and notice fire ants crawling around on the center consol.
I get to the restaurant, start looking around, pull out all my floor mates ants everywhere in the back.

My date shows up I tell her I have ants in my car 1970 220D. I tell her to look in my back seat area, at all the ants.
I think she thought I was going to push her in and kidnap her.

We walked across the street to Wal-Mart got some ant killer.

We had diner, then walked to the beach went for a walk, we were talking, I said something about this being our first date.
She said, this is not a date.
I thought if you take a lady out to diner and have a couple of drinks that is a date.
I just wasted 40+ bucks that I could of spent on the Mercedes.

I was going to ask if that pun was intended but then your story went sad. That's a major bummer.

Talking Too late now, but --

-- memorize this for next time:

She: "This isn't a date."
You: "Twenty bucks, please. Your share of the dinner."
She: "Whaaa?"
You: "Sure. We're friends, right?"
She: "Yes, but --"
You: "And you split the check with your girlfriends when you go out. So, twenty bucks."
She: "You're nuts."
You: "You're walking home."

And you suit the action to the word, start up the 220D, and head home with a Justice Has Been Served! smile on your face. Sure, she'll complain loudly about you to her girlfriends. But that's better than knowing they're laughing at you.

Hell yeah that’s a date. She just thought it wasn’t, because usually on her dates she finishes it off in the back seat. Stupid ants!

stupid woman......on a side note- I had an ant infestation in my caddy a few years back and had to use a bug bomb in it- and it worked! I had backed into a bush that had a dead moth in it and the ants decided to colonize my car.

I was planting Oak trees in my yard and had the 220D parked across the street in an empty lot during the day. There was a koozie under the passenger seat that they were all over. Maybe there was moisture in the kooozie they were after.

So you were too cheap to spring for a motel? I'd have asked her "What would it take to make it a date? How many more dates to get in your pants?"

I like to use those ant baits to kill them. Just put them where the ants travel, they eat it and take it back to home base. Whole colony dies. I'm no fan of ants.

It might have been a date up to the point you showed her the ants. After that she probably figured she would make the best of it since she had nothing better to do that night.
