Nashville Grubhub driver, Greg Philips, 22, has a first date tonight and he thinks she may be the one. He also has severe anxiety because he will be picking her up after eight hours of delivering savory foods across Music City.
According to Philips, "I just hope she doesn't notice my car smells like garlic chicken, pizza, broccoli, chili cheese fries, ribs, Italian sausage, popcorn shrimp, lo mein, pickled deviled eggs and chimichanga from my deliveries earlier. I don't want to mess this up."
Philips says he originally suggested that they meet at the restaurant, but his date's car was in the shop and he didn't know how to ask her to take an Uber without raising red flags. He also tried to rent a car but was not old enough.
Instead, he intends to mitigate the smells with a can of Cranberry Pumpkin air freshener and a bottle of April Fresh Febreze he purchased at Dollar General. He also vacuum-sealed a fresh set of clothes in the trunk that he plans to change into on the drive over. He just hopes that the fresh clothes don't inherit the car smells before he gets there.
Philips told reporters that he has been in this situation before and never made it to a second date. This time, he is determined to do everything in his power to woo this special girl. He said, "I'm just going to crank up the air conditioning, roll down the windows and drive really fast to the closest restaurant to her house. It's the best I can do."
