"Being an amateur gymnast, she was convinced that she could reach into the window and pull the poo out, using the tried-and-tested "inside out bag as glove" technique. Unfortunately she couldn't reach," Smyth writes comically on his GoFundMe page. But, that not ready to quit, Smyth's date took it to the next level:
"Eventually I agreed to give her a boost up and into the window. She climbed in head first after her own turd, reached deeper into the window, bagged it up, and passed it out, over the top and back into the toilet from whence it came. She called out to me to help her climb out from the window, I grabbed her waist and I pulled. But she was stuck. Stuck fast. Try as we might, we could not remove her from the window."
After 15 minutes attempting to remove his date from the window, a concerned Smyth saw no other option but to call the fire brigade to break his date out. Humorously, he explains:
"Bristol's finest were on scene sirens blaring in a matter of minutes. Once they had composed themselves after surveying the scene in front of them, they set to work removing my date from the window using all of their special firemen hammers and tools. It took them about 15 minutes."
Whilst his date was retrieved unharmed, Smyth's window was shattered beyond repair, which presented a problem for the student: "Problem is, I've been quoted north of £300 to replace the window. As a postgraduate student, that is a significant chunk of my monthly budget (in fact, that is my monthly budget)," he wrote.
So, with the consent of his date, Smyth created a GoFundMe page to generate the much needed cash. "So I'm turning to the internet for help," he wrote, adding: "If the window is not replaced my landlord may well kill me, so you would be literally helping to save a life."
Luckily, the internet came to his aid. With the page quickly exceeding its £200 goal in a matter of hours. Despite pocketing a healthy sum, Smyth has promised to split any extra donations between two charities: Toilet Twinning, a charity that helps to build and maintain flushing toilets in developing countries and the rest to the firefighters charity, explaining:
"This call out was pretty funny, but they do risk their [lives] on a daily basis, and the firefighters charity provides financial, psychological and medical help to the brave men and women who risk their lives for us."
Not simply satisfied with the bizarre story, the internet wanted more. Smyth's GoFundMe page was inundated with questions regarding a second date between the pair. Many pleaded with Smyth to keep the relationship strong, whilst others couldn't resist making jokes:
However, Smyth isn't the only person to experience a bizzare Tinder date. Apparently, the world of online dating is more complicated than we originally thought. Don't believe us? Here are some more Tinder dates that will have you wishing you swiped left...
If you're in a relationship, stay in the relationship. If you're single, stay single. Dating just isn't worth the hassle.
