    God created the flirt as soon as he made the fool. – Victor Hugo

    There Is No On Switch

    | San Diego, CA, USA | Flirting/How We Met, Theme Of The Month

    (I’m working at a diner as a waitress. I am waiting on an arrogant douchebag, which is business as usual. After fending off typical lame flirting he asks…)

    Him: “So… what time do you get off?”

    Me: “Sir, when it comes to me and you, neither of us will be getting off.”

    She’s A Ladies’ Man

    | LA, USA | Flirting/How We Met

    Customer: “How ’bout a date, sexy lady?”

    Me: *hoarse due to a cold* “The joke’s on you! I’m not a lady!”

    (The customer’s eyes go wide and he quickly flees with his purchase.)

    Coworker: *chuckles* “I do believe he thought that you meant that you’re really a man, not that you’re a tomboyish sort of woman.”

    Me: *grinning* “Fine by me!”

    Pick Me Up Taken Down A Notch

    | OK, USA | Flirting/How We Met

    (I work inside a convenience store in a casino. We sell some tobacco products but most are behind the counter. As I am making trips to and from the back storage room I notice a group of men coming into the store looking around curiously as my arms are full of merchandise. I am female.)

    Me: “Good evening!”

    Customer #1: *doesn’t speak but nods in acknowledgement*

    Customer #2: “Hey, do you sell cigars?”

    Me: *freeing an arm I point with an open hand palm out gesture towards the cigar case directly behind them* “Right there, sir.”

    Customer #2: “Hey I like that! Very professional!”

    Me: “Thank you!” *laughs* “I’ve been trained well!”

    (Thinking this was going to be a rare group of well behaved young men, I smiled brightly at them going behind the counter to wait on them. And then…)

    Customer #1: “Yeah, I can train you well, too, if you know what I mean.”

    Me: “…oh?” *I kept the smile up to at least be pleasant*

    Customer #1: “Yeah. Hey, you got a boyfriend?”

    Me: *not wanting to get into the fact I’m engaged to a woman with strangers I nod* “Yes, I do.”

    Customer #1: *sneers* “What’s his name?”

    Me: “It’s [Fiancé'].”

    Customer #1: “What’s he do?”

    Me: “He’s training to be a pharmacist technician.”

    Customer #1: “Oh, yeah? Well, I kill people for a living. What do you think about that?”

    (I guess he must have noticed my alarmed face because then he flashed his military ID at me and then I lost my ability to keep my fake smile up, honestly disgusted. I only nodded and said what needed to be said not even bothering to tell them to come back. I admire and look up to soldiers but that was just so low and horrid. I don’t know what bothered me more: the fact his friends didn’t try to stop him, or the fact he thought that was a pick up line…)

    We All Like Mike

    | Iowa City, IA, USA | Flirting/How We Met

    (I’m at an anime convention, and I’m hanging out and flirting with a guy I met there, who happens to be named Mike.)

    Me: *frustrated at messing up something simple* “Oh, for the love of Mike!”

    (He and his sister both look at me in shock and horror.)

    Me: “…oh, not you!”

    Good Thing They Caught Each Other, Part 19

    | Canada | Flirting/How We Met, Theme Of The Month

    (I work at a video game store. There’s a female customer who comes in often, but rarely buys anything. One day, when she comes in, I decide to help her.)

    Me: “Can I help you?”

    Customer: “Oh, yes, please. I’m looking for a new game.”

    Me: “Okay, what systems do you have?”

    (I listen in shock as the customer rattles off almost every platform.)

    Me: “What games do you like?”

    Customer: “Almost anything. I’m not choosy.”

    Me: “Well, how about Fire Emblem Awakening?”

    Customer: “Already have it. It’s a pretty good game.”


    Customer: “Have it. Almost caught them all… Except for the event Pokémon.”

    (This goes on for a good 10 minutes. Every time I suggest a game she already has it, and most of the time, has beaten it. Finally, I can’t find any others.)

    Me: “So you have all these games, and caught almost every Pokémon?”

    Customer: “Yep.”

    Me: “Marry me!”

    (The customer, sadly, said no. But she still comes in and looks for more games. Now, every time she comes in my coworkers joke about her being the one that got away…)
