How do you break a date?!

This guy at work cornered me, totally sideswiped me and asked me out, but I didn't realize it was just us and it was a date date until the plans were set! and he said it could be a while (he's honestly been bugging me for months to do something but i'm busy every weekend, this is the first instance were it would be just us.) but then he came in early yesterday morning and asked me about wed tomorrow and now i'm like fucked. b/c i can't say no w/o him asking again and again and i dont know WHAT else to say!

my "reasons" are
1) we work together. i hold a strict no dating pl at work policy.
2) he is not interesting to me, and i am boring when i am with him, we don't have anything in common.

please don't tell me to just give it a chance. a certain guy is not an aquired taste.

I just really hate feeling like i have no choice in this matter - but I don't know if I can come straight out and say "I don't date guys at work" because he isn't guising it as a date, even though we now both know otherwise.

Do I *have* to go? Can I get out of this w/o him asking again and again or w/o being a total bitch?
Help!

Say this, and then say "I misunderstood you when you asked me, otherwise I would have said no right away." Smile sweetly the entire time. If he continues asking, repeat this each time until you have to report him for sexual harrassment. I am not kidding.

What martha said. Or make arrangements to go out with a friend and tell him that something came up.

Just tell them something suddenly came up. Chicks say it to me all the time.


============================================

I would like to take this opportunity to apologize for my inconsiderate and very unnecessary reference to The Brady Bunch. It was totally uncalled for, and I promise I won't let it happen again.

Adam: Look guys, I got a Springfield spoon for my spoon collection.
Edge: Oh boy, here we go...
Bono: Wow, how many is that now Adam?
Adam: Nine. If I didn't have my spoons, I'd go insane.
Bono: Can I see it?
*adam gives bono the spoon, bono throws it away*
Adam: My spoon!

Or go on the date, say "This is a date? because I don't date people at work." and leave. Or do what a girl I knew in college did once. Show up for the date with a wig on and act like your "other personality" is in control of your body. It may give you a bad reputation at work but hey, no more date.

Or be intelligent and do what martha said.

Maybe Olive could develop a nervous tick and start shouting "my mother eats squirrels!" every time the guy is around.
