And I Thought I Was Bad At Hitting On People

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?”

Me: “Nope…”


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.


In My Defense, He Did Jump Into The Middle of a Convo…

A co-worker had asked to see my blog, after I mentioned he was the source of one of the posts. While he was reading it, we started discussing #6 from my “20 Tinder Don’ts” post.

“Don’t let all of your pictures be of you in a group. Seriously,  I don’t know which one you are!”

The conversation was overheard by the “most adorakable man I know”, to which he decided to interject:

Adorkable: “The ugly one.”

Me: “Excuse me?!…”


Adorkable: “In the pictures, it’s always the ugly one in all of the group pictures.”


Me: “Ok, for a second there I thought you were calling me ugly. I like that answer  much better.”


Poor guy…I can now appreciate why men think women are crazy.
