Scenario #2: Well, you got through the summer party without incident - except - and you even met someone who works for another company in the Tech Centre. You agreed to meet for coffee, which goes OK until...
“So, what's your position on bushmeat”
“It's not bad.”
[Wrong answer dumb ass. Although you went to George's Bush-Meat Deli in Kingston all the time before it was recently forced to close, now is not the time for colon-cleansing honesty about gamey meat - particularly since you're not going to be able to get it again.

“I mean probably. What does it say?
[Now, you've done it.]

Hopefully, in the future, you'll field these dates with women with clipboard checkoff criteria a little more swiftly. Note, we didn't say honestly. There are a lot nut jobs out there. They'll keep you so busy trying to meet some standard that you might lose track of first base.
Oh, you signed it, and she's still there? Yeah, we're surprised too.
