Think of your most embarrassing moment ever. Now, multiply that embarrassment by 10, maybe 20, and you may begin to feel one young woman’s level of humiliation on a Tinder date that went awry in England last week. That’s her in the photo above. Any guess what she’s doing?
She’s fishing out her poo from between two windows. I’ll just let that sink in for a minute.
After enjoying a meal and some beers at a chicken joint, she was at her date’s home, where they planned to watch a movie and drink some wine, when she excused herself to the loo to poo. When the toilet got clogged and wouldn’t flush, the woman decided to throw her feces out the window into the garden below. However, “it did not land in the garden, but became wedged between two non-opening windows.” Liam Smith, her date, said she came out of the bathroom with a “panicked look in her eye” and told him what she had done.
“He went to find a hammer to smash the window, but she decided to ‘climb in head first’ after the ‘offending package,’ and there she became stuck.
“I was starting to grow concerned,” Liam said, “so I called the fire brigade and once they had composed themselves, they set to work removing her from the window.”
The window had to be broken to free Liam’s date, and it will cost £300 (about $357) to replace. Liam started a crowdfunding page and has raised over £2000 so far. He and his date, who understandably does not want to be named, agreed to donate the extra funds to two charities: one supporting firefighters and another that builds and maintains flushing toilets in developing countries.
And here’s my favorite part of the story: Liam went out with the woman again and said: “We had a lovely night on the second date, but it’s too early to say if she’s the one. But we got on very very well and she’s a lovely girl. And we’ve already got the most difficult stuff out of the way first.”
Five bucks to anyone who can top that story (seriously, I will Paypal you five dollars if you have a story more embarrassing than getting lodged in between two windows trying to retrieve your flung poop on a first date).
