Ralph hadn’t been on a date for quite some time, and knowing this, his good friend arranges a blind date for him. Having been stuck in a few bad blind dates in the past, Ralph is reluctant to accept the idea.
His friend assures him that he would call during the date so he would have an excuse to leave, in case things weren’t going well. So Ralph agrees to the arrangement and later in the week he meets his date at a restaurant for dinner.
After being with his blind date all evening, Ralph couldn’t handle another minute with her. Surely enough, his phone rings and he excuses himself from the table to answer it.
When he returns to the table, he lowers his eyes, puts on a grim expression and saids, “I have some bad news. My grandfather just died.” The blind date replies, “Thank heavens, if yours hadn’t, mine would have had to!”
