I should mention that it was super-noisy, and when I walked over to him, I said his name, and he responded. One of us didn't hear it right.
I once grabbed some poor guy's ass whispering 'hey sexy' thinking it was my partner...I'm not sure who was more embarrassed.
Did you buy the guys lunch? You should’ve bought the guys lunch. Or gave him an airline ticket.
That’s a very cool thing you’re doing... again!!
I don't need a plane ticket so i will add my +1 so this might be seen by someone who does. You do good work @op.
It's important to be able to laugh at yourself sometimes.
Once going to study, got asked if I was Tony, I said yes, so they followed me into our study room casually chatting. I got my maths books 1>
out, they got some kind of law books. Our tutor came in, asked who they were. Turned out their tutor was called Tony also. Well I AM Tony...
I've had that happen, it was like a full cheek grab, like hand in my ass. She just sped away and I never saw her again.
I apologized profusely before mic dropping my shopping basket and sprinting out of the doors.
+1 so we get some more people seeing this post
To err is human, to dinner is with the correct human
This is amazing lol
I was wearing a black emo wig and skinny jeans for a Halloween costume and had a guy mistake me for his gf and slap my ass. She laughed.
I haven’t had a vacation in 20 years. I’d love to see my mother for a couple days...
One of these days I'll have a good reason to ask for a ticket. In the meantime, +1 for visability.
Still a better one story than twilight
I have very nearly done this as well. Except it wasn't a stranger. It was my mother-in-law.
I once gave a tour of our data center to someone with the same name as the guy I was supposed to give the tour to. He thought it was cool.
So I'm in the airforce and havent seen my kids since January. I graduate phase 1 of tech school in july and would love to go back to see em.
Well now that's quite the rollercoaster... And I'd love to get an airline ticket so I could be reunited with my gf for a week.
This is hysterical!! Did you order the same at the other table? Did you notice what happened to him?
Was he expecting someone too, or was he just playing along with the weird but friendly stranger?
Well today I was not able to properly dress myself. I realized I had been wearing my shirt inside out all day. No one told me.
i would have died on the spot
Even worse I did that having forgotten I've never had a significant other before.
My mom was just able to send her husband to London for a college reunion, but she hasn't had a vacation for 20 years. 1/
Also is Shankman your last name or a nickname you got in prison????
They could only afford one ticket. I'd love to be able to take her for a quick weekend get away to anywhere.
I slapped what I thought was my gfs butt at a theatre. It was a dude. He wore similar coloured clothes, height and hair was long. Awkward.
You are a good dude for doing what you do. Hope someone who really needs it has their day made
@OP , I feel ya - that sounds exactly like the sort of thing I would do. I doubt my wife would even be surprised if i did.
And the guy he was supposed to be meeting never shows up apparently
Did you miss the part where he was in private banking? Friendliness would probably bewilder the poor fellow.
At least you didn't do the Michael Scott thing where you're hanging out with the interviewee while also waiting for them.
That sounds like slavery to me.
I haven't seen my mom in 10 years... She's had a very hard life and lives on welfare in England. It would be incredible to see her for 1/2
You seem like a genuine being OP, good to see that in the world.
If your kids are your dependants they go with you to your next duty station
I don't have a sob story. Just like to fly.
A week in the US with me, as she considers America her true home... And I love her and miss her terribly. 2/2
Let me gues.. You didn't hear it right? It happens MUCH TO OFTEN! in our office. "Hey JeyMcDuck Do we have XYZ?" "Yes we have KSZ!"... 1/2
2/2 But how did it end? Did you get the job? :D
Nah, his mom's alright.
FASTER THAN NORMAL!! Your podcast helped me so much when I was diagnosed as an adult and turned my life around THANK YOUUUUU!!!
What the hell? Take a darn vacation!
Usually the first thing is an exchange of names.... Fake
So was that guy meeting someone too who was also 15+ minutes late?
I don't have a desperate reason to, but I want to go to California. You don't need a reason to go to California.
So why did the person start telling you their life story?
HAHAHA!!!! IT WAS ME!!!! I CAN'T FUCKING BELIEVE IT. It was at Guido's in 9th Avenue and I had scheduled a business lunch with who I (1/4)
PreK teacher, all my money goes straight back to low income kids. I'd love to see the world I teach them about & bring back things to share
Nice job paying it forward. I need nothing. Bless you.
thought it would be a potencial partner for my private banking app. It was super odd from the very beginning because you looked (2/4)
completely different to "your" LinkedIn picture. I remember when you asked me, could you tell me your name again, and I said (3/4)
Asking real question
I'm Michael Sassaonashian and I think @cangarejos is making all this shit up. FUN TIMES. (4/4)
This story made my day! Just trying to make ends meet for my kids after a rough 2 weeks. Would love a getaway to see a friend in California
There are so many deserving people. How do you know which one. I will throw my name in the hat. It is not for me but my mom. I moved ......
Half way across the country so my mom can help me nanny my son as a single parent. She refuses to travel because she knows I would need to..
Hi I could do with FFMi, having a hard time making it to Hawaii to film the Kilauea eruption for a nonprofit w/tiny budget. Can get 1/2
Not of he goes to phase 2 tech school. Chill bro, he knows what his entitlements are.
Take time off. I would love to treat her so she can see her family in Mexico.
2/2 a lot of great work done w/the equipment we already have we just have budget stretched thin w/the price of tickets added.
25th anniversary is coming up, looking to take her someplace nice!
The last vacation I went on my boyfriend killed himself while I wad gone. I just want to go back to Colorado and see my old home. I need
To get back to my roots and feel like myself again. Its been 3 years. Feels longer tho.
Obviously the footage will be provided to the public(YT) and news for free, goal is to document this event in several special ways.
I don't need a flight, but what you're doing is amazing. Thank you.
Oh man you almost had me!
I randomly glomped a girl because i thought she was someone else
My coworker was writing with a black sharpie and then he wiped his face. I didn't tell him about the black streak!
I would love to take a mini vacation to celebrate my one year anniversary of beating cancer that is coming up!
How about a one way ticket to Munich so I can live out my dream of living in Europe and becoming a decent human being? @phsnyc
Not this time motherfucker.
My depression is weighing me down during a week that’s 80oF everyday?? I’d love to be in Seattle enjoying the rain/Pacific. I’ve never been.
We both had the same situation, but mine was at a restaurant on 2nd Ave in the 50s. Sorry! :)
Awesome! Thank you!! :)
I haven't been back home to Puerto Rico to see my family in 10 years. 9 months ago my grandmother passed & I was unable to go & pay respects
I’m moving cross county to a city no one in my family has been to, so a ticket would be sweet. Also that sounds like an amazing first date!
Join a company that gives you a guaranteed amount of leave every year? Every business gives a minimum of 4wks paid leave per year where I /
live. After 10 years of service in the same company, they're required to give you 2 months of paid leave for long service.
Got real close in the dark and whispered, "Hey baby." Was not my boyfriend. Was my boyfriend's roommate. We both freaked out.
I'd say to fly my cousin from FL to AZ to see her sister who graduated from Northern Arizona Univ last week. :)
I want to know who the other guy was waiting for. I would love a plane ticket ... to meet you though. You seem very genuinely interesting.
I just finished school and have two months before I start a job and career for the next 45 years or so... i'm hoping to travel this summer!
Isn’t it gratifying when something stupid and humiliating happens but you can turn it into a humorous story?
I had to check your profile to make sure you weren't one of those bots that cut off half your post on making it to fp. Sorry.
My sister in law did that to my dad.
Good read @physnyc I don't know how you decide who needs a flight the most. Reading these comments, and that will be tough.
4 weeks paid a year? I only get 3 weeks and I felt I was lucky with that
My uncle did this with a limo driver once. Took the wrong guy's limo. Oops...
Yep and that's the minimum...I just reached 8yrs at my company and I can smell that sweet sweet long service leave
Because it seems from the conversation flow the guy was there for an interview and this person has now made him late.
That’s an absolutely perfect story!
I saw you speak at a conference once. :)
I had a similar run in, but I was the person being interviewed ._. Humiliating doesn’t quite describe it.
If you're commenting on how friggin long that story was, then dammmn, savage!
If anyone needs to see dying family, needs travel for med care take them. But I toss my hat in to go home for my sisters wedding in Sep.
A stranger had an hour long conversation with me as if he knew me. He knew facts about my family. Turns out he thought I was my sibling.
My best friend’s sister just past away, he needs to get from LA to Atlanta. I don’t need the ticket, I’m sure he could use the help.
Sorry for the typo
I constantly meet up with clients without knowing them in person beforehand - this is my nightmare!
I can ease your pain. One week I went grocery shopping and checked my balance at the ATM. When I went to check out, I realized...(1/?)
...I never took my card back. Luckily, some kind person had turned it in to customer service. Lesson learned...for a week, because (2/3)
I did the same damn thing again! That time, I remembered soon enough to retrieve the card myself. Luckiest and dumbest I've ever felt.
I don’t need it. I mean, I go where buses go. I dont even have a passport. But seeing something other than a bus ride from NH would be nice.
Had a coworker who did something like that once. The other person was too polite/shy to interrupt her. Other person eventually showed up.
It happens, don’t be hard on yourself. I need financing to finish my LLB....that was messed up!
You're not alone. My gf literally bit some random dude on the shoulder at our climbing gym before realising it wasn't me.
Coulda been worse: FB friend related how her dog ate a tampon & was trying to poop it out unsuccessfully. Imagine poop-painted living room.
Reminds me of Douglas Adams' biscuit/businesmann sketch
My sister just had her first baby, my first niece. I'd love to go and visit.
He didn’t say his wife and kids. Maybe he isn’t married and doesn’t have custody. Just stop.
Probably not need, but my wife is disabled and getting worse. We got married in a courthouse years ago. Never could afford to give her even
go stay at a hotel.
That’s really awesome of you +1
I don't think I need a flight as bad as someone else here, I'll do without but just wanted to say I love HARO, thank you.
...And by this I mean honeymoon, sorry, we just spent everything to go to her aunt's funeral and it's fucked us up.
I've been homeless since July 2016. I really just need a break from the exhausting, crowded, selfish, and stressing environment of this city
I was hoping to move in with my fiance in Finland before the year is out. I lost my job due to depression and anxiety.
I could use a plane ticket... just sayin.
This is amazing.
THIS IS THE THIRD FUCKING TIME YOUVE GOTTEN ME.
You are a very sweet person, and Im sure the story is just as entertaining from the other persons perspective
Great story! I don't need a plane ticket but I'd love to fly my mom from Fl to Ct to see her granddaughter and a few other peeps she misses
Colorado is waiting for you! There is nothing quite like home to heal you
My mom’s father passed away last year and his first year death anniversary is coming up. It would be nice to get that for her :/
I don't need anything since I just bought my ticket to Florida for my first vacation in over 5 years even though I don't have a lot of money
But I think what you are doing OP is amazing and thank you for helping people out like you do with the miles ^__^
believe me he spent that entire 15 minutes second guessing he had the correct time/ place/ person ect..
I dont know how this works and I might be to late but, My mom hasn't been able to see her mom in 5+ years. My mom is in her late (1/?)
50s and my grandma is in her 90s. She doesn't have much time left. Both my mom and I are on disability and not able to afford to send (2/?)
her to Florida to see my grandma. My moms birthday is i June and it would be amazing to surprise her with a trip to see her mom. (3/?)
Thank you in advance for even reading this. Also, thank you for even offering to give your miles to people. (4/4)
I’m a dude from Manchester, England who wouldn’t mind seeing the world and likes to think I have an equal chance at winning :)
If it makes you feel better, my last job was for a pharmacy in a Target Canada. We were to meet at the Starbucks. So I head to the info wall
look up where the Starbucks is, and wait. And wait. And wait. The meeting time passes. I eventually decide to get up and risk going to
the pharmacy itself in the Target. I get there. It's next to an in-Target Starbucks. Embarrassing but ultimately harmless, got hired.
I told a random lady I had a coupon for tampons one time. My sister has mysteriously vanished with this 90 year old lady in her place.
Had* I know what I'm doing autocorrect. Stay out of my business.
Wait, you were diagnosed as an adult, so you turned your life around by becoming a child again?
Guaranteed leave or not, "take a vacation" implies going somewhere. Maybe they have time off to use but have not been able to afford a trip.
Not surprised. That is a sweet spot. Us American Girls have to slave away for the 2 weeks we get.
Guess it'd be a bad time for me to mention that working women also get 4 months paid maternity leave here (payments are $695/wk before tax /
but that's better than nothing!)
Great story, thank you. Not sure who to give the ticket to; the guy who hasn't seen his kids since Jan tugged at my heart.
I can't even tell you how many people get the wrong order in drive thru because we read them off and people just go yeah but didn't listen.
When/if at my company, I will get 3 months at 2/3rd my salary, but I think I'd take the extra month at less pay!
