Especially if you told her straight away not to send .docx files. ;-)

Only about 1 to 5% of those that ask her to dance will get the
opportunity.  Most likely the average guy will get shot down quite
rudely in front of her girlfriends in such a scenerio, but that's
another thread.

Most of the populace holds that opinion of everyone else of the
populace regardless of the circumstances at any one time so I would bet
that more than 50% of the time someone thinks another is a jackass.  At
least we can give them a reason to *know* we're a jackass.  :-D
