Man Apologises To Spanish Woman In Newspaper For Offending Her Entire Country, Then Asks For A Date

The guy grovelled in the Rush Hour Crush column in the Metro – and hoped to get a date out of it too.

Posted on

The Rush Hour Crush page in the Metro newspaper every morning often features gems from lovelorn and die-hard romantic commuters.

But one letter in this morning's edition takes things to the next level.

It reads:

To the sexy Spanish senorita on the No.30 bus to Highbury. I loved our heated chat on Friday but realise what I did was insensitive to your country. I'm mortified. Please let me make up for it, over tapas or paella or whatever. Bearded Man Who Used Discarded Burger Cartons As Castanets

Bless him for trying to make amends, but there's every chance the girl will be further offended by his stereotypical dining suggestions.

Twitter user Shocko has since seemingly outed himself as the letter writer.

Internet famous again. "@tomvictor: You're probably just making things worse "

I can now confirm that there is no dignified, nor effective, way to seek attribution for a popular Rush Hour Crush you've authored.

BuzzFeed News has asked Shocko to keep us informed of any response he might get from the lady in question.

As an extra treat, the letter directly beneath that one was another corker.

It reads:

To Mr 6ft Gorgeous who gets the early train from Wolverton to Euston. You look like a hybrid between a giraffe and Neil from The Inbetweeners and your hair is like the Eighth Wonder Of The World. If I promise not to call you Neil, will you let me have a feel? Fixed Grin Girl
