Last night, yours truly was chilling out at his favorite coffee joint when an attractive blonde sat down at the neighboring table.

She looked like she was waiting for someone, and lo and behold, about 15 minutes later a young man walked in, head swiveling from side to side in hopes of finding his date as un-awkwardly as possible. The two made eye contact, greeted each other, shared an awkward hug, then settled in for an experience that's both exciting and somewhat dreadful -- an internet-facilitated first date.

Sitting three feet away in the relatively quiet coffee shop, I couldn't help but overhear each and every word uttered over the next few hours. And I couldn't resist the urge to share the experience with the Twitterverse.

Here's what followed:

seriously, when the "reporter" is writing articles that are composed entirely of their own tweets from eavesdropping at a coffee shop, there is something rotten in denmark.  this is the most pathetic drivel i have ever read.  the city pages should really look into hiring some new "reporters" because i think my highschool newspaper had better written and more engaging articles than this...

I used to enjoy Aaron's posts but now I am just disgusted by how much of a jerk he is.

Its nice to know, that wherever I go, Aaron might be there analyzing my life and tweeting about it!

Because, y'know, you collected your own tweets and made an article out of it. Wouldn't be surprised if the article idea came to you before the tweets.

Just here to try and make more fun of YOU Rupar.

Wow. This proves that boring dicks don't finish last. Thank you for this!

Being desparate for friends, my guess is she goes out with him again, but only a couple more times tops until a new online dude peaks her interest and she does it all over again. Eventually she'll meet someone randomly at the gym and tell stories of her awkward dates for years to come.

@thisisbad Ultra Liberalism has poisoned Rupar's mind, and unfortunately, there is no cure.

@keny1 @thisisbad keny take your right wing nut bs somewhere else.  rupar's douchtasticness has nothing to do with politics.  he's an idiot, regardless of which side of the political spectrum he falls under.

@samgo4th @Todd Perhaps, but it still makes you seem like a tool. I'm glad that the courts were able to establish a precedent on that one.

No one likes their grammar being corrected nor does anyone like reading about people correcting correcting grammar.  You only suffice to irritate people. I feel sorry for you if that is your goal.

I do find it funny that you completely butcher your own grammar while correcting another person's grammar. Sentences have punctuation and some words get capitalized.
