Me: What?! We should all go one day for a double-date!
Joyce: No I don't think so. It's not really Larry's thing.
Me: Aw. Well you and I should go for a girls' day. *smiles politely while feeling sympathetic that this woman's husband won't take her to a movie*
Joyce: No I don't think so.
Me: *standing there with hurt feelings but trying not to show it* Oh ok. Well . . . *not really sure of what to say so I prepare to walk away . . . .*
Joyce: *. . . . she beat me to it*
End of conversation.
