Maybe it’s just me, actually it probably is just me but… I really don’t understand why guys think it’s a good line to ask the girl in front of them in line to buy their food. Personally, I don’t find it particularly charming and I never know how to respond to it. Especially when you are probably old enough to be my father, but I guess that’s what I get for just standing there minding my own business.
Guy behind me in line: “So, you want to buy my lunch for me?”
Me: *nervous laugh* “No, maybe next paycheck.”
Guy behind me in line: “So, you’ve probably been working here long. What like 10 years?”
Guy behind me in line: “Is that right?”
Me: “Yeah, 10 years ago I was 16 and in high school…”
*buy my own lunch, and strut away*
This is why I wear my headphones everywhere…so I can avoid awkward conversations like that one.
