I’ll just come right out and say it- I am inundated right now with people who really want to solve the relationship problems that dog them so when I see something I think might help, I am going to throw it up here.
I apologize in advance if some are hurt but I am afraid I am getting bolder with age which seems appropriate as there is less time to waste. In whatever case, I went to the library today and on the way I saw a man in a new blue truck with this bumper sticker, prominently (and perfectly) displayed:
“Yes, This Is My Truck. No, I Will Not Help You Move”
And I just thought, what the hell. This is this guy’s statement? This is how he wishes to identify himself? As a guy with boundaries? As a guy who is not generous, a person who has things they will not share? What kind of first handshake is that? Who would want to go on a date with this guy, hmm?
The truck was immaculate and the sticker might as well have said, “Yes this is my dick and no you can’t have any.” And it gets even worse because the statement is not original.
Why take the truck you maintain in perfect condition and then slap some lame thing someone thought of 10 years ago and label yourself that way? I just can’t function on this and when I spotted the truck, I thought of astrology of course. The ascendant describes your first handshake.
Is your first handshake off-putting?
