Source- A Louisiana man went to extreme measures to impress his date on Monday and now could face jail time because of it. Police in Waskom, Texas say Nathan Henley from Minden, Louisiana, stole a plane and then crashed it.
The plane was on its way to Harrison County airport after a trip to Gilmer, Texas when it ran out of fuel. When troopers arrived at the scene, the 30-year-old confessed he stole the plane to impress his date.
Both Henley and his 21-year-old date were not hurt in the crash. But the plane is a total loss.
Henley is charged with unauthorized use of a flying vehicle.
“It’s a first date he’ll never forget, probably won’t be another one with them two,” said Landowner Jeff Crutcher. Henley was arrested is facing charges.
And they say chivalry is dead! Hey, you want to hate on a kid for stealing, and subsequently destroying, personal property than go ahead. However, don't say he didn't do his damnedest to restore the sanctity of courtship. This kid's biggest problem wasn't that he tried to impress a girl. That's what you're supposed to do on a first date. This kid's biggest problem was that we was too old school about it. It's 2015 man, you don't have to steal aircrafts to impress women. In fact, the bar is so goddamn low that making it through dinner without slobbering on yourself is to be considered a praiseworthy accomplishment.
You want to impress a girl Nate? Don't invite her to your house to watch Netflix before you've actually chilled. Don't insult her unless it's under the guise of a backhanded compliment. Don't, at any point, call her the wrong name. Don't pick a salad if you insist on ordering for her. Don't answer your phone mid-conversation. Don't show up 30 minutes late. Don't get significantly drunker than she does. Don't interrupt her when she talks. Don't stare directly at her cleavage. Don't bring up your ex-girlfriends. It's no longer about what you do to impress a woman, it's about what you don't do to unimpress her. That's how far we have regressed as a society. Shit, offering to wear a condom is like the 2015 equivalent of opening a door for a woman. Pulling out prior to climax is like 2015 equivalent of pulling out a chair for a lady. Giving her an old sweatshirt to shamefully walk home in the morning after is the 2015 equivalent of giving her the jacket off your back. It's sad, but it's true.
I appreciate the respect and admiration that Nathan had for this woman to want to steal a plane on her behalf, but that's some 1980's shit. Maybe next time just tag her in an Instagram picture taken in front of it. That might not seem like much, but you would be shocked with he amount of brownie points that will buy you. If anything, save that gesture for the proposal, because no first date is worth jail time. Especially in 2015 when a first date is only predicated upon mutual right swipes on a smart phone screen.
