Worst Pickup Line Ever: 'I Got A Groupon'
Photo via runninginheels.com
I'm all about a great dining deal, and I'm sure you are too.
But this story right here is not the business.
So guy meets girl at house party. Girl is somewhat interested in guy, but appropriately hesitant because he's aggressively pursuing her.
Here's her story:
I was minding my own business, fixing my drink when a guy walks up and introduces himself to me. We go back and forth with the how do you know the hostess? Where are you from? Where do you live? Cubs or Sox? Etc.
Then this happened:
Him: We should hang out sometime.
Me: Sure, where do you hang out?
Him: Public House.
Me: Oooh. Maybe not.
Him: Where do you hang out?
Me: I typically try and stay out of sports bars and clubs. I prefer good food and cocktails.
Him: We should go to dinner sometime.
Me: Yeah, maybe.
Him: Wait, what do you mean maybe?
Him: Well, here is an idea, why don't we go to dinner at Carmichael's? And I'll tell you why... I got a Groupon. Two actually. I paid $50 for $120 (worth of food).
This is where I excused myself and holed up in the bathroom even though four people were in line behind me pounding on the door to get in.
Holy smokes. Guys, please do not EVER do this with a girl you just met!
