Guy Ends Up Wedged Between Two Buildings After Failed Attempt to Impress A Girl

Ahhh, the age-old classic. Boy meets girl, boy likes girl, boy tries leaping from one rooftop to another and ends up lodged between both buildings.

To be young and in love, right?

A student in Pittsburgh is surely rethinking his life choices after it took more than four hours to get him unstuck from between two buildings. Grant Birdsong, 22, sneaked up a fire escape with a girl he just met and tried to impress her by jumping from one roof to the other. He missed, because he isn't Spiderman, and ended up stuck. Paramedics and emergency crews were called around 2am and had to break through a wall in one of the buildings to reach Birdsong.

Maybe the thought he was on The Office?

Birdsong was lucky to escape with only a broken ankle. And a bruised ego. The biggest loser in all of this was Bruegger's Bagels, who was one of the buildings involved. They couldn't open their shop on time due to the incident. But at least they left a note:

We're going to go out on a limb here and say there won't be a second date. Not too far out though. We don't want to fall between the buildings. Hey , Grant. Word of advice. Next time maybe try something indoors to start out? Or at least on the ground?
