TIL that I'm taking the receptionist out on a date tomorrow. I walked into the office and two people glanced at me and stopped talking. Half an hour later I asked one of them what they'd been talking about, and he told me they'd been talking about my date with her tomorrow evening. He also said they'd asked her about it and she'd said it was the first she'd heard of it. So far, nobody's told us where I promised to take her, so I have to hope I'll hear that rumour tomorrow, and that I have something suitable to wear.

I'm not sure 10,000 people learned that today, but congrats?

This is the Today I Learned thread, just renamed... It doesn't have to be a thing everyone knows and often isn't.

Yeah I know, it was a play on the name of the thread (which traditionally has referred to general knowledge stuff people have learned).

Sorry, I read your post as dismissive when I guess you were making a joke. :oops:

TIL I still have a long way to go when it comes to reading comprehension.

If more people worked in the rumour mill, it's possible 10,000 other people would have "known" it before I heard about it ...

... and thank you. I shall let you know how the date is rumoured to have gone.

I already knew about it, but if you're gonna have that attitude I'm not telling you where you're supposed to be taking her. I'll let you figure it out for yourself, but I will tell you to wear a tuxedo and bring 2 cans of silly string and a single rain poncho with the Albanian flag.

You forgot the pineapple. (Warning: get a small one.)
