Hey You, In The SUV...

11763878_6bdbb73a7d_mThere's someone looking for you on Craigslist, in their Missed Connection personals...but if you are expecting a hook-up with a MILF, or hair challenged guy, you might be a little disappointed.

It all started out so promising, maybe even a little kinky:

"You were in your little SUV, the SUV you must have bought so you could tackle all those HUGE snow covered mountains in Montclair, NJ.  My boyfriend and I were behind you".

But it wasn't a threesome Cupid calling:

"But in case you didn't hear me through our two cars, I wanted you to know what I said: there is no room for us to back up, you crazy stupid bitch".

where are these pictures taken? This and the mannequin picture don't appear to be in "baristaville". Are they?

Looking, looking, looking......Nope. I can't see any point to this being posted.

Anyway, he's baaaaaack.

Almost sounds like a Penthouse Letter

I am so glad there are people checking up on the Missed Connections now. Is anyone doing their homework and writing one per week?
Here's the link: Missed Connections

I don't know which is funnier, the SUV post or the "mon petit cabbage" post on Craig's List.

Posted by: Diane | Jan 26, 2006 1:22:16 PM

"Mon petit cabbage" was what Pepe LePew used to call the black and white female cat (Penelope, I believe) he was always pursuing.

The guy looking for the MILF REALLY REALLY needs to learn how to spell. Especially after watching the TODAy show where they exposed that attractive women are searching for "nerds".

Shhhhocking. Women want men with brains and steady jobs? Never would have guessed.

Posted by: MyManMisterC | Jan 26, 2006 1:43:48 PM

I remember something of the kind- but I thought it was

"my little cabbage blossom"

Posted by: badd_patti | Jan 26, 2006 1:59:39 PM

The great Gallic aquirrel used both, badd_patti. And would never be dissuaded whatever the spelling.

Posted by: cathar (8T) | Jan 26, 2006 2:43:52 PM

I guess they figured we Americans wouldn't cotton to "mon petit chou."

Let alone "mon petit choufleur."

(Sorry if I've got my genders wrong here,)

'"there is no room for us to back up, you crazy stupid bitch".'

I'd not hesitate to say the same thing in my vehicle but would definitely hestitate posting it on Craiglist or anywhere else! Sheesh!

Posted by: Surrounded | Jan 26, 2006 9:13:38 PM

Pepe's full line was:

"Ah, my little cabbage blossom! I see you are inflamed with desire! Shall we retire to my rooms for a little tête-à-tête?"

Sorry can't find a sound file.

But to really test your Francophilia...


(he looks like Pepe, doesn't he?)

oops, here is the link

Good Morning Everyone-

I moved here about 3 years ago from Kansas. Loving every minute of it. I actually live very close to Glen Ridge/Montclair but reside in Bloomfield. I was given this link a while back by a friend of mine who thought I would enjoy this site. Oh how he knows me. It is time I post. After reading this SUV saga, I must join the parade for you are my people. May I never miss another "missed connections" posting on Craigs list or news about drunk teenagers in Glen Ridge ever again. I love this site!

To The Bird - I am VERY glad this was posted because I, for one, am tired of being run down in my economical Honda Civic by aggressive and annoying SUV drivers in the suburbs. WHY DOES ANYONE NEED A GIANT SUV IN ESSEX COUNTY??? To go offroading on North Mountain Ave.? Riiiight...

I hope that crazy b*tch sees the post and realizes what a jerk she was. It's bad enough her irresponsible choice of vehicle is helping to drive up gas prices and destroy our environment, but she's a nasty driver to boot? She deserves every seething comment coming at her.

HARRUMPH! Now excuse me while I go hug some trees. :)

my burning question is.... what does MILF stand for????

Posted by: bt | Jan 27, 2006 2:22:34 PM

Mother-In-Law Freakout.

Posted by: walleroo | Jan 27, 2006 2:24:42 PM

A MILF is an attactive woman who is a mother. It's an acronym for "Mom I'd Like to..."

Um, yes, as for the F, I'll leave it to you figure that one out.

(Hint: It rhymes with "luck.")

Posted by: Mujer En Fuego | Jan 27, 2006 3:18:11 PM

like susan on desperate housewives...a milf.

Posted by: The Iceman (8T) | Jan 27, 2006 3:24:58 PM

Not like my mother in law.

Posted by: walleroo | Jan 27, 2006 3:28:26 PM

this entire town is filled up with milfs. i like to sit outside to eat in the summer and watch the milfs stroll by.

Posted by: katie | Jan 27, 2006 10:51:32 PM

m+il=thanks, but don't bother me - I'm late for soccer practice pick-up!
