Manchester Farceness
In the early 2000s myself and a friend had travelled down to Manchester for a gig. It was at the Old Trafford Cricket Ground, so there were plenty of folk drinking and it was very crowded. Anyway I had lost my friend and was waiting for him to find me in the crowd after sending him a txt.
An attractive Mancunian girl who was with a group of blokes asks if I have a light, I don't smoke so pretty much told her that. The young lady starts flirting (judged on hindsight) so the other guys bog off. After some chat about her and the gig, she lights up with a lighter from her pocket.
Even my Jade Goodyesque brain thought there was something in this. "She was using the lighter as an excuse!"
A few more minutes of chat ensues where she keeps mentioning her flat in the city centre. Whilst speaking about her flat, she often drops in that she lives alone. These factors (coupled with the clumsy snog which followed) may direct you to believe that this is one of my flirting triumphs. Well it bloody should have been!
Mancunian girl said she had to nip to the toilet and told me to wait there. Sounds easy right?
I thought I would help her out as the toilet queues for these things are awful, and that's just for the guys. I quickly realise I can save her the pain of a queue.
At least that's what I attempted to convey to her, fairly sure she didn't take it that way. What I actually said alongside a helpful point was.....
"The Disabled toilets are that a way!"

Now this might not have been a deal breaker, but I think I said it a little too loud and with a dodgy laugh.

She looked disgusted and walked away, funnily enough she didn't come back.

This is a lesson I frequently fail to learn... just because I've rationalised something and it makes perfect sense in my head, it's not enough just to verbalise the end thought. It's like telling the punch line of a joke without troubling with the set up, no one laughs and you'll invariably end up feeling like a twat!
