Taking MY name in vain...


Over the course of the past few days, it has come to my attention that some fellas are out here in these innanets using me as an entree to meet and/or engage with women. Normally, I would say... okay, I see you player. 

But in these four cases, dudes have turned ratchet and used my name to do so. That's So Not Bougie. At all. And actually, even if they hadn't turned ratchet - what's with using my name to get your game on? No sir.

For the record, let me state that unless I reach out to you directly and say "Yes, this is a good person - date him with my blessing" I haven't endorsed him. The people that I have endorsed, I generally take the time to introduce them via phone, chat or in person so that a friendly hand off can take place before I step out of the middle. If this has not happened, whoever tells you that I'm cool with them is full of rancid shiggity.

While it's true that I try to be fabulous (and modest, ha!) and try to surround myself with the same kind of people, not everybody gets that inner circle stamp of approval.

Apparently it's hot in the streetz to tell chicks that I've met you, signed off on you and given my blessing. One, I'm not the Pope - I don't give valediction. Two, do your homework - ratchet always leaves a trail. Three, email me and ask - I'll shoot straight.

As for the brethren who tried it? I wouldn't try it again. 
Try me and see...
BougieLand - What part of the game?

Whoa. About six months someone approached me on FB and said they visited the blog and thought we had a lot in common but he didn't use your name. People are just...

O_O...I'll be damned! Audacity knows no boundaries! SMH

Funny ( not in a ha-ha way) I had someone DM me about doing business together and that person was like "I know Michele!" I made a phone call - no they did not. That was some bold mess right there.

This happened to me. A guy I knew peripherally went to a girl and said I told him to approach. She called me like 'why did you send this scrub my way?" Naw son.

What's wrong with people?

Ew. *scrunches nose*

GuessImJay said...

And just like that - the Bougie Hookups will cease. SMH. Glad I got mine in under the wire.

This post would have been so much more epic if you had posted names...but I know that's so not bougie.


Oh & its hella wack & corny to pretend that someone cosigned on your wackness.

Really though?? That's so tacky

kiesh said...

Mofos out here trying to win by any means necessary huh? LOL.

CaliGirlED said...

I think they carry on because they know Chele won't post names. Oh but if she ever does, folks will be running out of BougieLand and won't even bother to pack their things! SMH

name names!!!!! don't let folks slide! Get'em coach! (just filled my "messy" quota for 2013)

Whitney said...

Sooo, take a good concept, great advice, fun times and conversation and turn it into a ratchet opportunity to meet a woman?? You thought OneChele wouldn't find out, huh?

Leo the Yardie Chick said...

No sah. Dat nuh right. Beyond 'so not Bougie'; that's fraud.

CCDreamz said...

Soooooo let me get this straight. There are men out there that believe that there are women out there that will drop their panties because they say they know you? <---- There are so many things wrong with that whole notion. I hope it is not true on the women's part. For the men...welp stupid is as stupid does. This should hopefully keep them out of the gene pool.

EC Thompson, MD said...

wow, I had no idea that I can control the Internet for babes using your name. I never thought of that. This is great. :-)

It takes a special kind of miscreant to pretend to be cool with people they aren't cool with.
