Welcome to the family

I was in line at Starbucks the other day [this is a rare thing, I know] behind two attractive teenage females. The barista was a young college boy. You see what is coming.

He seemed quite taken by one of the females that graced his cash register. My favorite was his opening line:

Barista: You look EXACTLY like my sister.
Female: Really? No way! That’s awesome. [faaaaar too excited about this probably false comparison]
Barista: Seriously. Well, take your sunglasses off.
Female removed her sunglasses.
Barista: Yep, pretty close. I love your eyes they’re really pretty.
Female: [giggle giggle] Thanks! That’s awesome!

To be honest, I tuned out after that. I am sure it went somewhere like “yeah, I am pretty sure this means you would fit perfectly into my family. We should get married. I love you.” I am not quite sure – but he seemed to be headed in that direction.

And I realize I was wearing sweatpants and a ragged t-shirt, but I REALLY think he should have given me more attention then he did and calling me madam didn’t make me feel any younger or more attractive.

Ugh...Not a good line. Ever. I don't see how this could ever work.

BAD LINE. Definitely. Definitely a bad line (Rain Man styley).

Seriously, incest. Not. Cute.

Maybe calling you Madam was a way to flirt, like comparing you to his mom.

I was just thinking what Olivia wrote, um...ew? He compares her to his sister and then starts flirting?! Not a way to win a girl over.

He called you Madame? maybe he thought you ran an "escort" service and were the ceo? No way he thought you looked old....
whatever the case, I'd avoid that starbucks!
