One of the most embarrassing things that has ever happened to me was when I was out with some friends. I was sitting in the bar and noticed that a woman kept staring at me. My friends urged me to go talk to her, so I did. I approached the table where she was sitting with her friends and said, “I couldn’t help but notice you were staring at me. Can I buy you a drink?”
She replied, “I am not staring at you. You are sitting under the TV.” I slinked back to my side of the bar.
Now people in Australia can get you tossed in jail for that.
