The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly: Rockwell Teachers Share their Best and Worst Dates
by Kaylee Birnbaum | Dates can be super fun, but some can be a total waste of time; you never know quite what to expect. We interviewed teachers at Rockwell to hear about some of the best and worst dates they’ve ever had.
“I was casually dating this girl. I picked her up in my freshly painted VW Squareback on our way to Raging Waters. After about 15 minutes, she slipped off her sandals and put her foot right on my newly painted pinstripes. I asked her ‘Will you take your feet off my dash?’ She rolled her eyes and took her feet down. A few minutes later, she put them back up again and started wiggling her toes trying to prove a point. I pulled over my car and told her to get out. I had a great time at Raging Waters by myself, though.” – Andrew Young
“My first and only date was going to a drive in movie on a TWO seat red tractor. After that, I was the ‘nerd of the school.’ Everybody had trucks and cars and I had a tractor.” – Sterling Parker
“My best date was the first date I had with my wife. Part of it was at the beach near San Francisco. As we were walking in the ocean, the current got ahold of her and took her completely under. I reached down in the water, grabbed her shirt as hard as I could and lifted her out. So I saved her life on the first date making me look really good!” – Brian Hull
“One of my favorite dates was playing Finger Paint Pictionary! Painting Chuck Norris was a challenge, but he figured it out. I also went on a date from a dating app and we went out to eat. At one point he stopped in the middle of his sentence, paused and said ‘Sorry, I just got lost in your eyes.’” – SarahKay Larsen
“On the first date with my second fiancee, we ordered a pizza, headed up the canyon, roasted marshmallows, and just talked. Talked for HOURS. We got attacked by a wild raccoon (true story, he stole most of our candy), lit a page on fire from ‘Wreck This Journal,’ and kissed in the rain. It was simple and sweet.” – Marshall Madsen
“I went on a date in college to a concert. My date asked if I could drive and not thinking much of it I said yes. Once we got to the concert, I realized that he had only bought his ticket and I had to buy my own. During the show, he had left and said he was going to go the bathroom but really went to get high with some of his friends he had met up with. He insisted on driving my car home and totaled it. When the police came, he pointed to me that I was the one driving. Best worst date ever.” – Heidi Grey
