Dialogues out of nowhere #3

While walking out of a magazine
shop one time (and walking fairly fast, too), some random guy ran up in front of me and said --


If you didn't get that, he basically said "Hi-where's-the-bathroom-may-I-introduce-myself?"
And he said all that in 2 seconds flat.

Now, I must've looked really confused because he asked me two questions without allowing me to answer the first one before firing the second. So I said --

"The toilet's over there (pointing the direction) and I'm with my boyfriend, sorry."

Shot down. Just like that.

The bf witnessed the whole thing and he was laughing his arse off! He even went off to spy on the guy and saw that he was with some other guy, probably his pick-up mentor.

The bf said guys should NEVER EVER approach a moving target. Don't give him too much credit, though. He got the idea from watching a series called The Pick-up Artist.

The idea makes sense really, especially if the target's in a hurry. Someone's first reaction when approached by a stranger is that he/she would be taken aback, which is exactly how I reacted. The guy startled me. You'll have better luck in a place where the girl is sitting down or just mulling about and not intending to be anywhere else for sometime.

In full fairness, bathroom guy's efforts have not gone to waste. I have gotten a story out of it, after all. Hehe.
