So, last night, I went out (obviously) with one of my girlfriends. We went to this place called The Roxy. It wasn’t the first time we had been there, and usually it is a really great time. Last night was no different. It was a blast. The only drawback was the line to get in, it was pretty long. It was about 12:30 AM when we got to The Roxy and the line stretched down the block. We decided to just wait it out because by the time we would have gotten to another place it would have been 1 AM and we probably would’ve waited there too, only for the place to close at 3 AM.
Anywho, we decided to wait. What we didn’t realize was that we were in line right behind one of the most annoying guys to ever exist.
We were talking between ourselves when this guy totally interjected into the conversation. He starts talking to us, he was obviously American, but acted surprised when we said that we were from the States as well. Like, no sh*t Sherlock, we’ve been talking for about three minutes, you obviously heard our accents which are not British.
But anyway, we were really uninterested in this guy, like had the total body language of “no thank you.” I was looking any where but at him and my friend was on her phone, but he continued to talk to us.
Normally, this type of thing wouldn’t bother me. Normally I’m super chatty and ready to muck it up with anyone within ear shot, but this guy was just so annoying. Without being prompted he decided to tell us the difference between paleontologists and archeologists.
I’m in line for the club.
All I want to do is dance. I literally don’t care at all what you’re saying.
He droned on and on and on. It was funny though, when you could tell that even the guys that he showed up with (Brits that he knew from his old uni) were rolling their eyes. The one guy kept trying to lighten the mood by cracking jokes or rolling his eyes behind the annoying guy’s back.
I just don’t understand how he couldn’t read our body language. He was either too busy listening to himself or just too inept at girls in general. Either way, pro tip for guys: if a girl is giving you one word answers or if you have to repeat your question six times before she realizes that you said something, give it up. It’s a lost cause, move on with your advances because she is not interested. I promise, she’s not playing hard to get, she really just doesn’t want to talk to you.
