Missed Connections: Dude In Cargo Shorts Searches For Grape-Feeding, Maybe-Pregnant Dog Owner

Sometimes Craigslist Missed Connections read exactly like the First Act summaries for quirky romantic comedies. In fact, I would like to option this Craigslist Missed Connection ad I just read titled “I told you not to feed your dog grapes.” Can you option CL ads? Can I just steal it? Anyway, the poster is allegedly a 33-year-old dude in cargo shorts who saw a woman feeding her dog grapes at the park and took the time to warn her that his own dog died after eating a bowl of grapes. In that moment, a special connection was formed, at least on Cargo Shorts end, and now he’s looking for the woman with a Border Collie who, P.S., may or may not be pregnant, because he wants to take her on a date. Sure, it’s kind of rude to say a woman looks like she might be pregnant, especially because two months pregnant could just as easily be a burrito baby, but Cargo Shorts wants a date regardless so YAY ROMANCE! When I make the movie version of this romantic tale, Ryan Gosling would play Cargo Shorts, DUH, only he would not actuallywear cargo shorts, because they are awful. I’m still unsure of the state of Dog Owner’s womb, though. Burrito baby or real baby? Hard to decide. [Craigslist]

Update: New Craigslist Posting Claims The Fat Woman On The Boston T Was A Bully

The saga of the fat woman on the Boston T line rages onward. Now, someone has written a new Craigslist missed connection post claiming that the woman herself is the bully, because she allegedly sat on a “kind, older woman” and the original douchebag target, effectively pinning them both down.

UPDATE, Friday 4p.m.:  There’s an update to this post here!

The world would feel like a more just place if we could (literally or figuratively) beat up every bully in the schoolyard. We can’t do that. But we can take to Craiglist’s Missed Connections to call out sociopathic, sadistic fat shamers who tell random strangers to “lose some weight” on the Boston subway.

Take, for instance, this incredible Missed Connection addressed to “the shitstain who made a woman cry on the T — 30 (Stony Book T Station)”: Keep reading »

This Guy Is Asking The Interwebs For Help Finding His Missing Crush

So, once upon a time, a boy from New Zealand got lost in Hong Kong on New Year’s Eve and met a girl from America: ”I was just walking around and admiring the lights and found this girl just crying on the side of the road … I went and tried to help her out. She was lost. She’d lost all her friends.”

After the boy cheered her up with his “undeniably bad sense of humor,” he took her out for drinks, and she eventually found her friends again. At 6 a.m., the party ended and she left.

However, before she took off, she dropped a romantic comedy-style bomb on the dude. Leaving the boy with her name, her hometown (Washington, D.C.), and her picture, she challenged him to “find her.” And off she went. Keep reading »

This Craigslist Missed Connections Post Awesomely Tells Off A Street Harasser

A Minneapolis woman who is now pretty much my hero seems to have gotten fed up with the helpless feeling that comes along with being leered at on the street. She posted an open letter to the man who shouted nasty comments at her from his car on Craigslist Missed Connections, basically voicing the internal monologue of every begrudging catcall recipient there ever was.

The woman, who calls herself “the blonde you shouted at,” tells it like it is and explains just how damaging the dude’s actions are with statements like:

…Thanks to you I would spend the entire train ride home feeling scrutinized and gross because you didn’t have the willpower or maturity to keep your mouth shut; that your wife and daughters or at the very least your mother deserve better than a cowardly man who shouts at women from the safety of his car.
