Hahaha oh boy
So I go out to the bar with the girls from two doors down, about whom much has already been written
The one who left the first note we shall call L and her roommate is N
So we're having some drinks and some laughs and a male friend of L. comes in and talks to her for a while. During this time I'm chatting with N. and she mentions that she's cold, so I give her my jacket. This is a thing I have done many times for many people without really even thinking about it.
At this point the dude has found his way to the bar stool next to me, and almost immediately he leans over and asks if he can talk to me for a second. He leans in and tells me in a conspiratorial tone "I see you with N. and I know what's going on. Believe me, I used to be like you. I was the nice guy, pulling out chairs, holding doors, offering my jacket. But not anymore. Now, she seems kind of easy, and if I started hitting on her, she would probably go home with me tonight, because I'm kind of an asshole and women like that. I've been around the block a few times, and I can see you're a nice guy. And nice guys? Well, they finish last."
This last is delivered with the most smug grin, shake of the head, and pat on my shoulder you can imagine
I lean in and say "First, you are laboring under a serious misapprehension of what is going on between me and N. right now. And second, regardless of anything else, when and how I finish is my own concern."
I walked away and told N. about this and we started trying to hatch a way to mess with the dude but we wound up leaving a few minutes later, so all we had time to come up with was for her to put her arm around me as we left the bar in case the guy was watching us
I don't know if he was but we all had a good laugh in the car
