    ok, now this is genius...



    "CANBERRA (Reuters) - [size=-1]It's every single person's nightmare: You're on a date, it's a disaster but there's no way out. [/size]

    [size=-1]

    With Valentine's Day (news - web sites) looming, a mobile phone company in Australia has come to the rescue with a service offering an escape from the date from hell.



    All you have to do is discreetly dial three numbers and then hang up without saying a word.



    "Virgin Mobile will call them back a minute later with a perfect excuse to get them out of there. We'll even talk them through what to say," the company, a joint venture of the Virgin Group and Optus, said in a statement.



    A survey of 402 people by Virgin Mobile found that 53 percent arrange in advance to have a friend call them mid-date to check they are all right or if they need an excuse to get out.



    The results showed women were twice as likely as men to use the tactic. "

    there's a service like this that's locally based in houston. they had it on the news the other day. you can set it up ahead of time... http://www.bailoutfriend.com/


    i've never even done the thing where you have a friend call. but then... i've never gone on a blind date so that's probably why. and nobody's asked me out for valentine's day so i won't be needing it. :razz:
