A fun topic for those reading LJ on a Friday: what's the worst pick-up/chat-up line anyone has said to you?

The one that sticks in my mind is the guy on a bus about ten years ago who interrupted my book-reading to say, "You shouldn't read so much. You should watch more TV." (Strike one!, I recall thinking.)

He followed it up with two more strikes, actually: when he said he was only kidding and asked what book it was, and I showed him that it was Hawthorne's The House of the Seven Gables, he said, "Never heard of it. Any good?" (Strike two!) And when I told him I had a boyfriend, he said, "So is that pretty serious?" Nah, I just mentioned it for legal disclaimer reasons, dude. Not because I wanted you to leave me the hell alone or anything. Strike three; yer outta the game!

Towing a toddler around does have its benefits, I guess. No one chats me up anymore. No, it's a good thing. Really.


Happy weekend!
