My Shidduch Plan of "Attack"

The following is one of my favorite shidduch stories of all time. Before anyone accuses me of attempting to spread an urban legend, please let me clarify. I personally know the people involved in this story.

There was a girl from Boro Park, and she came to monsey for the day. She was driving around, taking care of whatever she had to take care of in monsey. Then, suddenly-
CRASH-
She found the front of her car firmly embedded in the back of the car in front of hers. While her immediate instinct was to panic, she remembered her manners, and like a true bas yisroel who is on the market, she calmly stepped out of her car and blushed at the yeshivah bochur who stepped out of the other car. Spotting a potential problem, the boy, who was from monsey, called his parents down to the scene to mediate.
While taking care of the various details involved in a car accident, the parents noticed her aidelkeit and fine middos. And so, in addition to getting her name, number, and insurance information, they asked for some references.
The end of the story is rather obvious....they boy's parents had a shadchan redt the shidduch. They went out. They got engaged. They got married. Now they are living happily ever after with ten kids. Well, only two, but you get it...
So here is my new shidduch battle plan. Literally, battle. I'm going to find out which boys I am interested in dating and what kind of cars they drive. I will then follow them around, looking for opportunities to smash into their cars without making it obvious.
As long as I can keep my cool, maintain my good middos, they will surely ask me for more than just my insurance information.
Unbelievable? Believe it!

Lol, I know this story too and the people involved (my friend was in the car when it happened), with slightly different details. The best part that you left out, was that the boy was just coming from a bad date and then had this accident with a really sweet girl. Talk about being in the right place at the right time!

HS- I wonder if it's the same people. I don't think that was part of it, I'll email you...

EP- oh gosh. I thought I had a once in a lifetime story to tell over...

TB- maybe we should rent a bus, then the guy can pick which girl he wants to date...

Anon- nah, skip the mercedes and BMW. My father doesn't go for german products. ;)

Hey dont hit my car, I dont want to marry someone with bad driving skills.

Something Different said...

MIM- nah, if the crash was deliberate then I wouldn't consider it bad driving skills.

I heard this story too, and saw a picture of the cake they had at the vort. It had two cars crashing into each other....

Something Different said...

BC21- I doubt this was the same couple. I know her and she is really not the type. And I know her sister-in-law and that family is even less the type. But I will ask...

BigChamor21 said...

I guess this kind of thing is not that uncommon then.

Something Different said...

BC21- Yes, and that makes me suspect that while I am the only one who would admit to this plan, others have done it.
