The Third Wheel

So I arranged a first date with a girl who I liked to go to a Padres baseball game. I told a friend, Raul, about it and he suggested that he ask out a girl that he was interested in and we could do a double first date. Now Raul is the friend that everyone in the group knows is an idiot. We all loved him but he wasn’t the guy who you wanted to go with on a date. He did already have four tickets, so I reluctantly accepted. In addition, since we all lived on campus and he had the biggest car he volunteered to drive us all. I should have known better. So the day came and he picked up me and the girl, who had been hanging out. As soon as he gets in the car, his date called and cancelled. Now it was a first date with a girl that I liked, plus the friend who wouldn’t shut up. And it wasn’t just chatter. He talked about all the stuff that guys talk about without girls around; crude sexual jokes, masturbating, other dumb stuff. My night (the game ended up lasting for 3.5 hours) was mainly doing damage control. I barely spoke to my date one on one. By the time the game was over and we got back to my place, I tried to laugh it off as just Raul being Raul, but the damage was done. Suffice to say I never heard from this girl again.
