What’s The Worst Pick-Up Line You’ve Ever Heard?

Last night, after I had dinner with a girlfriend, we weren’t quite ready to go home yet, so we stopped by a bar a few blocks down the street for a beer. The place was pretty crowded and we grabbed the last two seats at the bar. Just as we were sitting down, some guy in a polo shirt and backwards baseball cap came running over and said, “Hey, ladies, I was saving those seats for a couple of friends of mine.” I shot him a nasty look, turned to my friend and said, “Let’s just get out of here.” I was already turned off by the numerous TV screens sportin’ football, and this d-bag pushed me over the edge. “Hey, hey, I was just kidding!” he said, suddenly aware that his “pick-up line” totally bombed. “But in all seriousness, folks, first beer’s on me.” And then, before we could even respond — or order that first beer — he disappeared into the crowd never to be seen again. That was bad, but I’m sure some of you can top it. So, spill it, readers! What are some of the worst pick-up lines you’ve ever gotten? Keep reading »

Quotable: Selita Ebanks Appreciates A Semi-Racist Pick-Up Line

“These guys, they’re just never gonna learn. Well, there’s this funny one. People might think this is a bit racist, but it’s funny. I was in Atlanta, I’m at the bar, and there’s a white gentleman there and he says to me, ‘How you doin’, baby girl, how you doin’? And you know, he’s aggressive, so I laughed a little bit. So he keeps going, and I had to say eventually that I wasn’t interested. And he goes, ‘Well, you know what they say. Once you go white, your credit goes right.’ He said it and I made him say it all night to the rest of the bar. But thank God my credit is already right, honey. I don’t need a man at all to do that.”

    Pick Up An Austrian

    Out-of-towners visiting Austria for the Euro 2008 soccer competition will receive a free guide, which includes a few essential phrases (i.e., Do you have a sliced sugared pancake with plum compote?). I guess flirting with locals was deemed essential, because the books a phrase for picking up members of the opposite sex: “Servas, fesche Katz.” It translates literally as “Greetings, hot kitten.” I’m so adding that to my repertoire of pickup lines.

    What’s The Worst Pickup Technique A Guy’s Attempted To Use On You?

    I was at a bar this weekend, hanging out with some friends, when a guy came over to me. He began by telling me he was thinking about opening a bar, then preceded to ask me tons of questions, like what I thought made a successful place and whether having Guitar Hero would be a draw. He kept pressing me to answer questions that seemed a little lame, considering they were all hypothetical and he was clearly not going to be opening a bar, um, ever. It felt like an inquisition and almost seemed like he was using a technique from a book he had read (ask her questions so she thinks you’re interested!). Anyway, we’d love to hear some stories about the worst techniques ever used on you, because they’re guaranteed to make us all laugh, and we all need a good laugh on Mondays. Share yours in the comments. Keep reading »
