Powerful Craigslist Missed Connection

Oh Craigslist, how I love you. You provide such amazing water cooler talk and also dating column/blog fodder.

While I myself have never been the subject of a Craigslist “Missed Connection” (that I know of), I now can add it to my list of life goals.

The following story is true. It happened in the Golden State. No names have been changed (as there are NO innocents to protect!):

Let me start off with the following…

A. After many friends have told me to check this out, I do believe I am that girl you are typing about, seeing as I have been at that stop around the same time for work purposes. The belt, by the way, is not made of shoelaces.

B. Please, if you are going to type a fucking classified in hopes of making yourself seemingly appealing, learn to spell; This applies to the correct spelling of ‘pussy’ (I, along with others, read ‘puzzle’ at first).

C. If I were to EVER see you again, I would highly recommend you to take a couple of lessons in learning to be a GENTLEMAN. Being called a “hot lil thang”, “cutie lil white girl”, and a “clazzy bich” does not really do too well with the female population. It’s seemingly a wonder that you even have a girl to “leaf”.

D. I am vegan. Take your Popeyes and “Red Lobsta” elsewhere.

Thank you.

The girl “wit big ear wholes”.

I’ll never understand why she wouldn’t let him buy her some “white strech pands”  that she could wear on their “clazzy” date to the “sizzla” in his “triked out civic.”

Because, clearly, these two people are soulmates and Craigslist could have brought them together…

    Wow! Thank you for sharing! The local free paper here has a “I saw you” section in the classifieds. I always hoped to read “Cute girl in Volvo station wagon: I saw you at the stoplight at Montano and 4th Street. You were jammin’ out to NPR. I like Terry Gross. Let’s meet for coffee.” Or something along those lines. But now I’ll be a little more careful of what I wish for!!

    You will have to let me know if you ever do see a “Cute girl in Volvo” posting!! Because clearly, your response would be something to the effect of “I’ve always rather fancied Ira Glass. Coffee sounds lovely.”
