Pick-up line of the day on BART

People generally don't chat with each other on BART, so when one strikes a conversation, my ears perk up. After all, it is my job as the writer of BART Musings to share with you all interesting things I see/hear during my commute, right??

A man, likely in his early 30s, was sort of looking at a woman, also likely in her 30s. She's cute, well-dressed and busy knitting. And because she was preoccupied with knitting, she wasn't aware that this man was totally checking her out. He sure didn't hide it. Then, there was some passenger movement in the train due to a stop at the MacArthur station, and he ended up standing next to her seat.

He then said to her, "I always thought knitting was one of the hardest things to do. How did you learn it?" She then said something about how she picked it up from friends, looked away and continued knitting. Then, he said, "Wow, that's so impressive. I'd love to see some of the things you've knitted some time."

Urgh, I felt bad for her. She said, "Oh, I don't have it with me. It's really not that hard."

The man should have taken that as a hint and just stop talking but he said, "No, it's really impressive. You look like you're really good at it too."

She smiled and looked down again. There really was nothing left for him to say after that, so he finally took the hint.

I think you're being really hard on the guy. Try being a single guy in your 30s in the Bay Area.

Ouch. Poor guy.
I'm sure you will find him writing in the missed connections on CL within an hour of him getting home.

Trying to pick up girls on BART is next to impossible anyways. It is already a totally uncomfortable environment. And with all the 'creepers' out there, girls are more cautious then ever. Most of them are keeping their heads down...which I don't blame them one bit.

Guys, Stop being hopeless romantics on BART! You ain't got no game! lol Sorry for the double negative...
