Is that the best you can come up with?

While walking across UWI campus this morning I overheard a guy trying to get a girls attention as he shouted “Girl in the pink top, would you like me to be your colourful bottom?”

I couldn’t help thinking that that has to be the LAMEST pick up line I’ve ever heard in my entire life!!!! Can I be your colourful bottom? Really? That’s the best you could come up with? Sad!

I’ve always wondered why guys insist on using pick up line such as that one and even has the chutzpah to say them loud enough for other people to hear. It’s something I’ll probably never understand but I’m thinking that if a guy wants to talk to a girl maybe he should walk up to her and talk to her. I can’t speak for every girl out there but I do think that many girls certainly would prefer that approach.

This pathetic poor boy. I’m going to give him the benefit of the doubt and say his friends dared him to do it. He really didn’t expect the girl to answer *looks away*. (I need not say that she didn’t even look in his direction).

Sadly this guy wanting to be a random girl’s colourful bottom is not alone. There are many others who believe that random stupid ingenious lines like that are the way to go. “How was heaven when you left it?”  “Did it hurt? when you fell from heaven…” are but two of the corniest lines ever and I cannot see myself entertaining a conversation with someone who choses to start the conversation like that. The “pssssst…” and the “baby…”  don’t wonk either. I do not answer to those calls because I’m not even sure what Psssst means and I’m certainly not the baby of some guy I’ve never met.

Note to guys: The pick up lines are unnecessary (especially when you’re shouting them across a distance). If you want to talk to a girl try walking up to her or asking her if the seat beside her is taken. It really isn’t such a difficult task.

Til Later,
