Here's a quick story of one of the worst pick-up attempts I've ever witnessed.
It happened on Tuesday night at a bar that was holding a fundraiser for Hurricane Katrina... $20 for 4 hours of open bar. I was there with a bunch of co-workers. A couple hours into the night, I heard that one of the partiers had taken a liking to a female co-worker, but was too intimidated by her to do anything about it, claiming that she was out of his league. But after a few more drinks, his confience had been raised enough to allow him to approach her with this line:
"You know, I came here tonight for two reasons. One, to help the victims of Hurricane Katrina. And two, to find a nice Irish girl like you."
Needless to say, it was not a well-received opening. And she remains out of his league.
