Pity poor “Kyle Trouble,” the pickup artist. The globetrotting woman-pesterer was enjoying the second day of a trip to Istanbul yesterday when bombs went off at the airport, killing more than 40 people.
An hour later, Kyle posted to his blog “This Is Trouble,” complaining that “the #Istanbul attacks JUST cockblocked me.”
That’s a kind of collateral damage of terrorism that you don’t generally hear much about.
“In case you missed it,” Kyle wrote.
two bombs went off at the airport about an hour or so ago.
I’m staying in the Taksim Square area, and most people are still out and seem relatively unaffected, but the streets are quieting down a bit early.
Oh, and my date just got a phone call in the middle of our drinks and left because she didn’t feel safe in the center.
My attempts at, “My apartment is a great place to hide out”, did not end so well.
If Kyle Trouble can’t score himself a hottie tonight, does that mean that the terrorists have won?
