FatLadySings: Overalls Attracted Beau

FatLadySings: True story. My friend was on her way to work when her tire blew. So she pulled off to the side of the road (I-90) and got out of her car. She was wearing 5 inch heels and a suit with styled hair, make up and acrylic nails for her professional job. She walked around the car, viewed the damage. Another motorist saw her and turned around to help out. By the time he got turned around and arrived to assist she had already got in the trunk, pulled the spare, put on her coveralls, boots, gloves, tied her hair back in a dew rag, put a tarp on the ground and was jacking up her car. He was in awe and instead of offering to help he asked her out on a date :)

Question: Did someone ever ask you on a date after an unusual meeting?
