The chat up line that ruined me…..
Sorry if this one sounds a tad ranty I’m having a few problems with the local council at the moment and they are starting to get on my nerves.

I hate chat up lines, I have never used one myself and always find it better to just try and start a conversation with a woman if you are attracted. Six months ago I saw a chat up line used that still boils my blood.

I was invited to a party at a mates house one Friday night and for some reason I could not bring myself to get myself round to going. The mates house was a good journey away in Inner city London land I was not too keen on going in fancy dress (You may think I ‘m a bit dull for not wanting to dress up but I don’t really care).

Anywhoo I eventually got myself together and got to the party (I didn’t want to be known as a miserable bugger who sat at home reading books in his dressing gown and slippers when he had a chance to go out and meet new people). I tried to get into the mood but it wasn’t working so after 30 minutes I decided to call it a night. That was when I saw her. Her name was T and she was a vision of beauty that made me rethink my plans to vacate the building. I am not usually good with women but decided to try my approach of being friendly and seeing how it went from there. Surprisingly we got on pretty well, she turned out to be very smart (she excelled in maths and was employed as an astronomer). Things were looking good, she was not repulsed by my social awkwardness and it seemed like she would like to meet me again after the party.

Then it all went tits up.

One of the other male guests saw I was making headway with her and decided that he would try his luck with a quick chat up line that was so cheesy, even I rolled my eyes. To my disappointment T fell for it and buggered off with this bloke (My guess is that he was a yank as his accent was horrid and his dress sense was appalling (Despite it being fancy dress)).

Anywhoo I better get off, I have to finish writing my daily letter of complaint about the plans to build a bypass through my property, hopefully my mate Ford Prefect will give me a hand.

"Wanna ride in my spaceship?"
Or words to that effect I believe.

I'm sure that will soon be corrected.
