The number every girl (and boy) should know
I know you've been in this situation:
You're out with friends for an evening. You're just trying to relax and have a good time, but there is that one guy (or girl) who just won't leave you alone. You try to be nice about the fact that you are completely not interested. You try being mean. You try leaving the spot you're hanging out in. And still, this person persists.
It's exacerbating. And it can spoil an otherwise fantastic night out on the town.
Well, let me introduce my solution to you. It's called The Rejection Hotline. And it's been around for a while. It's frequently a night saver for me - and now I'm passing it on to you!
Basically, it's a number you give out when you don't want to give your real one. When the receiver calls it, trying to get to you, they reach a recording letting them know that while they believed they scored with your number, they were, in fact, denied.
So here's how it can work: you exhaust all other options to get that annoying boy (girl) to leave you alone. You simply turn to them and say, "I've really enjoyed meeting you tonight - but my friends and I have a lot of catching up to do. Why don't I give you my phone number and you can call me later this week if you'd like to meet up again?" And it works every time.
The best part is that there are numerous rejection hotline numbers and they all have real area codes (no 800 numbers) based on where you live. For example, the DC line is 202-452-7468. To find your local rejection hotline number, click here.
And no, this isn't mean, for anyone thinking so. Think about it, so you meet a girl one night and think that you hit it off, only to be given the rejection hotline number. Sure at first you'll be disappointed, but if you only met one night it's not like you'll be heartbroken... And now you'll have the number and can give it out to someone else in the future!
