Have you ever been on a blind date? They can either go well or go badly. Here’s a short story about a blind date that didn’t go well.
After being with his blind date all evening, the man couldn’t take another minute with her. They just weren’t hitting it off and frankly, her personality was annoying him.
Earlier, he had secretly arranged to have a friend call the restaurant and ask for him, so he would have an excuse to leave if something like this happened.
So as he expected, the waiter came to their table and said there was a phone call for him.
The man went over to where the restaurany phone was and when he returned to the table, he lowered his eyes, put on a grim expression and said to his date, “I have just had some bad news. My grandfather just died”.
“Thank heavens”, his date replied. “If yours hadn’t died, mine would have had to!”
Well I guess that’s planning for you and if you ever go on a blind date, I guess you could call that plan B.
