'Cause you've been running through my mind all day.
Recently, Elle, Holly and I were out at popular bar, and some guys came up and started talking to us. One of them said that his girlfriend of eight years had just broken up with him, and he wanted to know how to get back into the dating game. He asked us, "What pickup lines are best to use if you want to start talking to a girl?" and we all said, "None. Do not use pickup lines in real life. They always come off as either cheesy or creepy. If you want to start talking to a girl, come up, say 'Hi, my name is ___,' and go from there." (And by the way, yes, we all realized immediately that his "My girlfriend just broke up with me and I want advice on getting back into the dating game," routine was his version of a pickup line. But at least he didn't say, "Can I have a quarter? I told my mom I'd call her when I met the girl of my dreams." Because let's be honest, nobody uses pay phones anymore, and they definitely cost more than a quarter.)
So I want to know - what is the worst pickup line anyone has ever used on you OR that you've ever used? Come on, share! I'll start.
The most ridiculous, awful, cheesy pickup line that was ever used on me in real life was this (and I swear to you that I'm not making this up):
I was working at the grocery store back in my high school days, and it was a week or so before the presidential election, and this customer came up to me and began to discuss the election, purely so he could say...
"If you were the president, you'd be Babe-raham Lincoln."
Ok, it's your turn! Share the worst pickup line that anyone's ever used on you or that you've ever used.
Also, tomorrow is Tova's Totally Awkward Tuesday, so stop by tomorrow and be awkward. I'll be sharing an awkward story that actually happened to me last Tuesday. Apparently Tuesdays are just an awkward time for me.
