A blind date takes a lot of trust—in your friends, sure, but even more so in yourself. It's a tacit admission—hey, maybe things haven't been going great in your love life. Why not try something new? Take a deep breath. What's there to lose?
For John Gallagher, from Bohemia, Long Island, the answer was his Vicodin and perhaps his dignity. He and Tracy Carter didn't have a great date last weekend—in fact, Gallagher told Fox New Jersey he invited her in for a drink because "he didn't want to be rude." Perhaps he went to sleep that night pondering his place in this wild and crazy universe. Perhaps he went to sleep that night wondering if the right one would ever come along.
And then he checked the security footage. And what'd he see? Tracy crawling through his doggy door, clutching the Vicodin, and then scurrying right out. According to CBS New York, she was arrested by police shortly after Gallagher reported what he saw. How will this man ever trust again?
"A second date is completely out of the question," Fox New Jersey writes. Fox New Jersey thinks it's a laughing matter, evidently. I suppose there's nothing funnier than the potential of eternal loneliness.
