The strangest bit on the radio this week...
On a local radio station, they do a thing called "Second Date Update" every Tuesday. What happens is that someone who has gone on one date with someone wants to know why the other person hasn't called them for a second date. Easy, right?
The gal (Ashley I think) called in and told her story about how she met a guy at a weeklong conference up in Spokane about 3 weeks ago. The guy had a unique name - Parson. Anyway, she met Parson the first day and evidently hooked up with him every chance they got when they didn't need to attend a seminar. At the end of the week, Ashley flies back home to AZ. End of story, right? No.
Early last week, Parson calls Ashley and says he's being transferred to AZ. He mentions that he'll be in town in a couple days and they should go out on Friday. She waits for a call from Parson but he never calls.
So this morning this gal calls the radio station and they call Parson's cell phone. Here's a paraphrase of the conversation.
Radio Guys: "Hello?"
Radio Guys: "Oh hello! Can we speak to Parson?"
Gal: "He's at work. Can I take a message?"
Radio Guys: "Well...we wanted to speak to him. Who's this?"
Gal: "This is his girlfriend."
Radio Guys: "Oh, hi! Do you live there or....?"
Gal: "Yeah. We've been dating for about four years but we've lived together for two years. I moved down here to be with him."
Radio Guys: "Oh really? Moved from where?"
Radio Guys: "And where do you live now?"
Did you catch that? Parson has a long-term girlfriend and he hooked up at an out-of-state conference with Ashley. Who happens to live in the same city as he does? ARGH!
Ashley then gets into the call and relays the story of the hook-up to Parson's girlfriend. But get this....the girlfriend JUMPS on Ashley for what happened.
Gal: "So am I going to have to get tested for some STD?"
Gal: "Did you think a guy as hot as Parson DIDN'T have a wife or a girlfriend? What are you? Some ugly girl who needs to hook up with a guy to help define yourself?"
Can you believe it? She jumped on Ashley for hooking up with her boyfriend. Shouldn't this gal be pissed off at her boyfriend for cheating on her? Ashley was just letting her know that Parson was cheating on her. I just couldn't believe how the gal turned on the truth.
Anyway, once the whole story unfolds, the radio station allows callers to jump in on the conversation. One call came in....
Radio Guys: "Hello?"
Caller: "So we're sitting here listening to the radio and he jumps up and runs out..."
Radio Guys: "Who? Who runs out?"
Caller: "Parson! He jumps up and runs out and drives off in his car!"
Radio Guys: "Oh....he was listening to this whole thing?"
Radio Guys: "Wow! I wonder where HE is driving to?"
So this loser guy Parson cheats on his girlfriend. He hooks up with a gal who happens to live in the same city as he does but pretends like he's from some other city. And his whole story is blasted on the radio station when he's at work. Oh... I'm sure this guy had a BAD day!
It's like Jerry Springer on the radio! All I have to do is picture the situation instead of having it flashed in front of me.....DANG! Morning Radio!
