So you know those “Missed Connection” personal ads?

Well, one guy has been responding to the ones on Craigslist, sending them emails stating “That’s my girl, a-hole!” and then blogging the response.smile

Might be NSFW if your work gets uptight about language (a-hole is in every post), other than that it’s perfectly safe

Glad you enjoyed it though.

Weird indeed.

And I also think it is weird that some people put out these adverts about pregnant women. I mean, I know it isn’t always the case, but usually where is a pregnancy, is a man as well.
