Jake's exactly that kind of guy who will ask you for a stick of gum every time he sees you with a pack.
That's not me trying to insult him or anything, that's just what I gathered from a recent tweet of his where he admitted to asking a classmate for a piece of gum every day in their math class. Unbeknownst to Jake, however, was the gum-girl was seriously crushing on him, but she never broached the subject to him.
But once the semester was over, she gifted him an entire pack but with a surprise inside.
i've asked this girl in my math class for a piece of gum every day for the whole semester. today was our last day and i asked her for gum and she gave me the whole pack as a parting gift... if this ain't the smoothest thing i've ever seen. 💯🔥 #giveextragetextra pic.twitter.com/ELd9CukEUW— jake (@squidslippers) December 4, 2017
I mean, just look at that finesse. Look at that creativity. She even wrote "Sorry I'm..." above the Extra, hinting at the big reveal inside.
The first thing I thought when I saw the numbers was, "Well how's he going to know if any of the numbers outside of the area code are in the correct order?"
But she has that covered, behold the tiny numbers on the bottom of each piece so he knows which order he should plug those digits into his phone.
You have to give it up for this kind of ingenuity in asking your crush out.
People immediately told Jake he found his soulmate and offered up some totally serious, not jocular wedding ideas.
Jake, if this is not gonna be her wedding outfit, i don’t know what is— طالب (@TalebKabbara) December 6, 2017
Other people asked the more important questions, like why the heck did it take him so long to ask her out in the first place.
So you mean to tell me you went a whole semester asking her for gum but couldn’t ask for her number??— Daniel (@DvnielJ) December 5, 2017
And Jake's response fulfilled the "clueless dude" stereotype perfectly.
priorities... jk haha i was oblivious to the signs and didn't think she was into me. i guess if someone willingly gives you like 1,000 pieces of gum that means they're at least kind of into you.— jake (@squidslippers) December 5, 2017
People started suspecting this was an ad...
But Jake swears that he's trying to get Extra gum to notice the tweet and they've kept silent.
Others pointed out just how great of a love story it really was.
I bet this girl purposely made sure she had gum w her every day just so she could give it to you— iizzyy (@IsabelSwatsky) December 6, 2017
Seriously, I need to know what happens with Jake and gum girl! Hope he keeps us updated.
