So we've all tried different things to try to pick up women, men, both, or 'other' (whatever floats your boat). Sometimes these techniques work really well. Others...well, yikes. And then there are others that are amazingly embarrassing. These are the ones I'm interested in. So...share away.
Here's mine. It was at my first job. I had been there for a few months and we had just hired a few new employees. Two are relevant to this story; a guy and a beautiful woman. The guy...was, well, nice enough I guess. But he and I were both attracted to the new girl. So we spent a few weeks trying to muster as much game as we possibly could. This was rough considering that neither of us had any game to speak of. But we tried. Well, one day I decided to try to really impress her. I had a really good day of working my 'game' (it wasn't very good looking back now) and I thought we were really going somewhere. Then, I saw opportunity rise. I needed to flip a couple of fuses that corresponded to lights where I was working. I worked in a 'family fun park ' that had bumper cars, lazer tag, batting cages, etc. I was working the batting cages. The fuses were inside of the bumper car area (caged by a metal fence). Every night I worked in the batting cages I was required to turn on the outdoor lights. I had learned a 'really cool way' to enter the bumper car area to flip the fuses. I used to jump over the metal fence, land in the bumper car area, and flip the fuses. Simple, right? I had done it many times up to that point. Well, this day I decided to do this stunt extra well to impress 'my girl'. She was running the bumper cars and I thought, "I'll really impress her by jumping over this fence like a bad ass!" Because, women are impressed by stuff like that right? Well, I did it. Then I fell and every single person in the entire place heard and stared at me. This included 'my girl'. That night, I offered to walk some of my employees to their cars (it was something the bigger guys did every night by order of management). I had hoped to walk 'my girl' out to her car and turn what happened into a joke so that she might...I don't know, sleep with me (that's where my head was as a high school student). Well, remember the guy I mentioned earlier? He walked them out including 'my girl'.
