I must have not been working that restaurant that day. I always hung out in the alley looking for free food and frustrated women. If it was a slow night then I had to sleep all night in the alley which is a bummer because women usually have better liquor than I did in their bungalows. I didn't want to drink Skol all night, plus I needed to scratch that 2-3 day itch.

Edit: Tell a women that instead of being sick. Things like rehab, bankruptcy, children in other states or bigamy work great.

I've never been on a bad date. I've had dates that ENDED badly, like the one time I ran out of the restaurant and puked up my lunch, but I never had a "bad date".

Nerves of steel...

Nah. I pretty much tell the dude this isn't working out and I hit the road.

I've had people call me out of the date for whatever purpose (like the "Flock of Seagulls" dude, remember him?), but haven't used being sick, yet.

I haven't faked my own illness to get out of a date, but I have been guilty of saying I had a sick family member so I couldn't go.
