Men’s Essentials: Wallet

28 10 2010

About 35 minutes ago I sat down to write this post, switched on spotify, selected Queens of the Stone Age “Songs for the Deaf” and got sidetracked by what was possibly the biggest air guitar session ever known. So sorry about that.

Straight to business… you’re at a bar celebrating your promotion at work. All your work colleagues are there, well the ones you like anyway. The drinks are flowing and your having such a good time the hours are going by like minutes.

You’re flying high. Maybe it’s the 5 bottles of imported German beer you’ve sunk, maybe you’ve just been hiding that you’re secretly an uber confident Sean Connery type, I don’t know I’m not a doctor. It’s at this point that you summon the courage to go and say hello to the stunning girl that’s sitting at the other end of the bar.

All the pieces are falling into place: the promotions got you feeling confident, all your jokes are landing, she’s laughing with plenty of eye contact and you’re at that excellent point of innebriation where you’re oblivious to consequence but not slurring your words.

You ask to buy her a drink and she accepts, your work mates are looking over her shoulder giving you air fives and then it happens…

You pull out the velcro wallet.

The music stops, you’re friends are mortified… wait, is the girl crying? The doorman comes over and asks if there’s a problem, he sees the wallet and proceeds to throw you out of your own party.

It could have all been avoided if you had a wallet that didn’t say that you still live with your parents.
