I ignored this guy's IM because he called me "sweetie," which I can't fucking stand. And he replied with:

Um. Is this a kink of which I'm not familiar? Did he have a stroke of genius and decide this would be an awesome pick-up line? I mean, it got me to reply. Basically to say, "WTF, yo?" But, uh...what?
Yep. They're still out there.
