I was the guy that helped you and your daughter with your flat this afternoon on Route 1. You were driving a gray car. You had just come from the grocery store. We had a nice conversation, I only regret that I didn’t tell you how beautiful you were. If you’d like to continue our conversation, please let me know.

What a good Samaritan.

You came in to purchase a windshield wiper and I was getting tires. You said hello and I returned the greeting. You were gorgeous!!! You waved at me before we left. I should have stopped and asked for your number, but I was in a hurry. If you see this, get in touch. I remember your car and Sorority, but will not post it here. Your initials were A.J.

Maybe you can drive off into the sunset together.

I saw you in your black ZX-2 at the Sunoco at the Masaponax exit off 95. (Exit 126) You stopped for a drink or something. I was getting gas in my ZX-2… You ran up on the curb and looked nervous after that so I didn’t want to jump out in front of your car. Then you went south on 95 (the same way I was going). I zoomed past you.. I hope you see this and can catch up…

Oh my God, you have the same car. It’s fate.

You gave me wrong directions, but it gave me the opportunity to drive past you a second time. Can I meet your secret identity?… I know, I know corn-BALL, but your shirt is all I have to work with.

What a man. He asked for directions – twice!
