TheVP Posted September 19, 2011 Share Posted September 19, 2011 There's this girl that I really like that works at a McDonald's near my place of work. Last week, I finally got up my nerve to finally talk to her and messed up everything I planned to say terribly. So, I quickly left the McD's really embarrassed, and once I was back at my office, I realized I left my duffel bag back in a booth back there. I brought flowers along for this girl, but left them in the bag, because I was already feeling too much pressure just to talk to this girl as it was. So, I looked up this restaurant's phone number, made a call to describe the bag, and where I left it, and asked if I they could hold on to it until I came to pick it up, and they said they could. Other then the flowers, this bag mostly contained work related materials of mine. In any case, my paranoid mind kept imaging those nosy workers rummaging through there, laughing about the flowers, and learning all details about my life. But I didn't want to go in to see those same workers to retrieve it, so I came in early on Saturday morning instead. A sleepy guy brought it out of the back, and in my car I quickly unzipped it to check to see if it was all in tact, and I was glad everything was just as I left them. Anyhow, all weekend, the bad experience has been playing in my mind again and again, as well as "what I would have done instead". I'm going out of town a routine work related trip tomorrow, so just this afternoon, I was getting my stuff ready to pack up. Just an hour ago, I opened my duffel bag, to empty it, and I found a handwritten note in the flowers that said "I LIKE YOUR YOU TOO -SILVIA" So, now heart is beating a thousand times a second, and I keep on picking up this note and looking at it. What stinks, is that I'm now heading for Boston for about a week (which now seems like an eternity). Before last week, I've gone to eat at this place every day for lunch, so now it's going to look like I've just retreated because of the experience on Friday (which I admit didn't seem so bad before). So, should I just play it cool and wait to do something until I get back? Send a postcard from Boston? Make a quick phone call? I'm afraid that might make me look too desperate and too much like a stalker. Ugh! Really wish I wasn't heading out of town now. Link to comment
