Support the Lemon Law

In the real world, usually in relationship to car buying, there is the concept of the lemon law. Simply stated, if you buy a car and drive it off the lot and realize that it has major problems you can bring it back as a "lemon" and either get your money back or make a fair exchange.

Now from the wisdom of television comes an even better idea. The Lemmon Law of dating. What is this amazing concept you ask? Well sit back and prepare for me to blow your mind. One of my favorite shows currently on TV is the CBS hit comedy "How I Met Your Mother", one of the characters on the show is a guy named Barney (played by Neil Patrick Harris...aka. Doogie Howser, M.D.). Barney provides many interesting observations into the life of the twentysomething single life. Through this character, we have been given the lemon law.

Now what is the Lemon Law, it's quite simple. Within the first five minutes of any first date, if either party feels that the date is a dud they have the right to Lemon Law the other person. Just invoke the Lemon Law and cast the loser back into the sea no harm, no foul, no night wasted. Thus providing ample time in the evening to hang out with friends or do something else. This saves time, hassle, and most of all the unfortunate event of having to go through the motions of a date with someone who is a real dud.

That is the greatness of the Lemon Law. Embrace it. Love it. Live it. It could revolutionize your life!
