Middle-eastern guy to middle-eastern coworker:
"Mas lavash, por favor"
Him, in shorts and flip-flops: "I wrote you a two page poem, I’d like to read it to you. I wanted to get you a rose to hold while I read it."
Her, in a beautiful dress and gorgeous heels: (looks around nervously) "Maybe not here."
Him: "I spent so much time writing it, I really want to read it to you. It’s
romantic. What, should I pretend I haven’t spent days writing it?"
Her: "That would be okay, yes."
Him: "Okay, I’ll just forget it. I’ll forget I wrote you a two page poem and was going to read it."
Her: "Yes, that sounds like a good plan."
Him: repeats himself over and over, saying same thing…
Her: "Maybe we could just leave."
Him: "And ruin this evening I have planned? What’s changed between us?"
