"You know what time the 24 comes in?"
You may not know this, but this is one epic pick-up line. Men of all ages approach me, out of many and ask me this question. Wanna know how I know its a pick-up line? Cause after I tell them they start to ask about my personal life. Not the, "So you don't have a car either, huh?" No it's straight to the point, "Ya gotta man?"
Honestly, I have to give these people credit. They are pretty straight forward.
Today was no exception. His name is Ray.
He starts off with the usual, "What time does the 24 come in?" I tell him that it pulls out every hour on the hour so it should be here about 10 mintues beforehand. Thinking we're done I go back to the book I'm reading, trying my best to think of warm things since I'm freezing my butt off.
Suddenly I hear, "You're really pretty." I mumble a thanks but I guess he didn't hear because next thing I know he's sitting next to me and he not only repeats himself but says, "I told you you're pretty, don't I get a thank you?"
I have to admit, he has my attention. I close my book and look up at him. "I did, I said thank you."
He then proceeds to talk to me about where he's going and asking me about routes. I really have no idea about it and I tell him this. He then smiles at me and asks if he can sit next to me on the bus. I POLITELY tell him "no".
Once the bus pulls up I hop to my feet and walk there, Ray following close behind and still talking. Usually I have patience but I was cold and tired and knew I had a long day of bus-riding to do.
He then began to annoy the bus driver with directions since he really didn't know where he was going. He looked at me and asked me where I was going.
To my surprise I found myself replying, "The Zoo." He smiled, "Can I go with you?" The bus driver, to his credit, hid his smile before Ray could see it.
"Oh, what about dinner some time?"
"I work, make a lot of money. Almost made it into the KC Royals"
(KC Royals is the baseball team...I think)
The bus driver isn't even trying to hide his smile now as he gains the attention of Ray with a polite question about where exactly he is going...other than the zoo.
Needless to say they figured it out and Ray talked to me the entire time until I hopped off.
Just to put this on the record, I would have been a tid bit more interested if
1. I was attracted
2. I was warm and comfortable
Only two variables...not bad. I'm not desperate!
