Man Under Assessment
Because of the competition amongst women, we are hesitant to leave a prospective date alone for too long in a room filled with other women. Short of taking him with you to the ladies room, locking him your car, or asking him to hold your purse; there is little you can do to identify him as “taken” or “under consideration.” Wouldn’t it be great if you could place a reserved sign on a man? Perhaps an ear-tag or sonar device could be used as either a visual indicator that the man is currently under assessment, or as a tracking device to trace his migration during the evening.
Perhaps a car alarm type device could be utilized. If you need to excuse yourself from the conversation to use the ladies room, or begin assessment on another man, you would simply activate the alarm by pressing a button that’s conveniently located on your key chain, “chirp-chirp.” If another woman approaches the man, a loud warning would sound. “Please step away from the man. This man is currently under assessment. If you do not step away from the man, an alarm will sound and the authorities will be notified.”
If the other woman persists, an additional, yet silent, alarm would be activated. When the second alarm is set-off, the area would be swarmed by the older female members of your family, who would employ harassing and shaming techniques until the intruder retreats.
The intimidation techniques they use would include: waving a rolled-up newspaper, aggressive and loud hand clapping and foot stomping, and hollering, “Shoo! We’re trying to marry-off this girl. She’s almost forty years old, for heaven’s sake. Scram!” If necessary, they will take a few quick combative steps toward the intruder to indicate that they are willing to chase her into the parking lot.
