A local radio station has a segment they call “Blown Off” where the hosts hear from a person who’s been on a date with someone that then hasn’t called them back. They chat with person, get details and then call the date and put them on the spot on live radio asking why they blew the other person off.
Today Bill wanted to know why Katie had blown him off.
BECAUSE HE WAS WEARING AN ANKLE MONITOR AND NEVER EVEN BROUGHT THAT FACT UP WHEN THEY TEXTED/CALLED OR ON THEIR IN-PERSON DATE.
He had the nerve to ask the girl why she hadn’t just asked him about it and when she said something about protecting herself went full nice guy. Whining about how he can’t have a past, he can’t ever date, that thing with his ex was all being worked out and anyways it happened LAST YEAR and he can’t take all the interrogations and accusations from people who don’t trust him! He doesn’t owe them an explanation of WHY he’s wearing a monitor.He was in fact, Cartman.
So next time some guy asks why a woman doesn’t just tell a guy to go away, play this segment for them. Sure they’ll probably be on Bill’s side but maybe, just maybe they’ll start to see what women have to deal with.
(On a side note, I kind of hate the premise that anyone is “owed” another date if one person thought it went well. And I definitely dislike the bullying implied by having a radio station call someone - even if they’re sort of playing it for laughs. But it’s hard not to listen. And I can’t deny it got my blood moving this morning)
