Rules Girl #34444444444: Sometimes it's best to just walk ... away.

"Hey, didn't you wear that skirt when I saw you Sunday?"
EH!?! I swung my head around and saw this kid that I have met a couple times and who had quazi 'followed' me around somewhat at another function before so I chuckled to myself when I ran into him randomly and the first thing he blurted out was ... my skirt.
I then responded with, "thanks? wanna buy me a new one?"(trying to be nice while wishing I could hand him a 'learn how to be socially competent by the Rules Girl business card')
and he said no but told me I shouldn't repeat the skirt....
I finally pushed through the kindness and out came the blunt and real self and I said, "what's your problem with my skirt?"
and he flirting-ly responds, "Well... isn't it dirty?". (winky weird googly face)
uhhhh seriously? So what if I'm repeating a skirt with a different ensemble in a place I never thought I'd see anyone who had seen me Sunday...
anyhoo- I ended up explaining to the poor chap that people often do their laundry and maybe said something about it being once a week or so and he explained to me that Sunday wasn't 7 days ago, it was "like 72 hours ago". (ps. it's Thursday)
I proceed to count to five with my fingers and pointing at each as I said a day of the week, "Sunday (1), Monday (2), Tuesday... " I showed him that it had been 5 days.
At this point I was so excited about him, that I just walked away.
Moral of the story. Rules Girls don't DO ridiculous.
We of course try to be nice, but sometimes the nicest thing to do... is to walk away.
bye dirty skirt but not really dirty skirt hater boy... have fun with your every 7 day laundry and finding a girl that likes to be told she's dirty and repeats outfits.

and if you didn't wash it.... who cares, did you run a marathon, get all sweatty, dig a garden in it? Maybe it is dry clean only... you have to wear dry clean only several times before taking it in... This guy was just a Jack---! I guess it shows you he invest a lot of time in what you wear, --notices you, takes mental notes.

Yikes, sounds like he caught you red-handed. Maybe the moral should be: don't wear dirty skirts. However you are correct, when accused of something you cannot deny it is always best to storm off and pout. Well done.

Uhhh, this is kind of awkward, but I'm pretty sure that the "creeper" is my little brother.
