What are your worst pickup lines, abroad or local?


  1. About a week and a half ago at a local store: "When I saw you, I sensed big money!" Really! :P At first, I thought he was just a salesman, a foreigner who didn't quite know how to complement customers with expensive taste. Nope! He followed that line up, trying to convince me that he "knew" I was going to win the lottery or something soon. :roll:

  2. Last night at a bar, a man standing next to me leaned over and said, "So, do you read?"
    I was speechless.

  3. Is that a keg in your pants? Because I'd love to tap that ass!

  4. When I was a teenager, some guy asked me, "Girl, you got any black in you, 'cuz look at that booty!" I was so mortified.

  5. In Florence a few weeks ago my friend and I were walking down the street, and a guy stopped her arm and said, "Excuse me, miss, you dropped something!" Worried it was a scheme to pickpocket us, we both grabbed our purses and looked at the ground. He continued, "My heart."

    Oh boy. We kept walking.
