The Subtle "Hit" at the grocery store......

    I have to say, this was pretty funny. It was like some episode of "Will and Grace" or some gay scene with a guy at the deli counter and another comes up and starts this discussion.... It was positive however!

    So I was at one of the Wichita Dillons Marketplace stores tonight. The store carries some great extras that most grocery stores don't. So I'm at the Deli and suddenly I become aware of a man who approaches me from behind and asks me about polo (since I'm wearing a Ralph Lauren shirt with numbers)
    I explained that I've played, but not regularly. He references the polo games played at the farm (right behind where I grew up) and several people I know.
    I explained that I grew up there and when I introduced myself, it became clear he knew who I was.... He was nice, but I always order a half dozen things from the Deli and I could hardly get my requirements out to the clerk when there he was again, off and running. He asked me what I did for a living and asked me for a card, referencing some financial needs he had
    with a 401K plan (from a former employer) that hadn't done much. "I'll be calling you", he said...

    I mentioned it to my partner. He asked me what I was wearing.... My red
    soccer (Spain) polo shirt and typical military looking shorts. "Now I see why you got hit on", my partner said and made a couple of positive remarks about his perception of me in those clothes.

    We'll see if the dude calls me. I have to admit, I was a little surprised about it all. I guess you never know what will happen in a grocery store!
    Any of you been hit on with an arm full of groceries?

    LOL ...... I am so clueless when it comes to being hit on

    Whenever I tell my friends about an encounter .... They'd laugh and say
    Ummm you do know that he was hitting on you ?

    I need a brick to fall on my head

    It's been so long since I've been hit on in real-life (as opposed to online), I'd probably just stand there mute.

    My ex did construction near the grocery store where I was a cashier. He used to come on my line all the time-- even if I was handling big orders and he just had a couple of things. I had no idea he was even interested in me - I mean, he was his hulking older man, usually covered in plaster, just there for his lunch meat.

    Finally one day, after I had already rung him up, he leaves, then forces open the Exit-Only door comes back to my register and asks me if I want to hang out. He slipped me his number and one of the most charming smiles ever. To this day, the sexiest pick-up I've ever had.

    (Reading this back to myself, puns not intended...get your mind out of the gutter, this is an innocent story icon_razz.gif)

    damn - how common is that? I thought I was the only one who never seemed to recognise a come-on. (I was not aware that that it ever happened often unless it was pointed out by my ex (who found my total obliviousness highly amusing).

    Mine was in Whole Foods.

    I was wearing my finest A&F tee shirt, an attire my jealous friends have often mentioned "IS AGE INAPPROPRIATE".

    Well, anyway, I was entirely focused on my pursuit of organic dragonfruit and fresh cherimoyas.
    'Entirely focused'.....yet of course I am always aware that my inescapable sexual appeal will inevitably ensnare the attention of ANY MAN within 50 feet....unless his vision is poor.

    As I reach for my first choice, I can't help but notice my reflection in the mirrored surface behind these eco-sensitively-harvested little treasures.

    WOW, I immediately notice the great bulge of my right tricep as I turn my arm. Ahhhh, those new pushdowns are really paying off !

    The mirror also revealed something more, and for me, not unexpected.

    There was a guy completely entranced in my every move. I ignored him which of course only further aroused his interest.

    I continued my flexing in the produce mirror as I particularly enjoyed the effect when the misters started their soft spray. With the peach tone of my A&F tee----in a form-fitting size which my nasty friends also describe as "2 sizes Too Small".......and my glowing tan (Did I mention my holiday in Barbados?), I was nothing less than stunning, If I do say so myself.

    THEN, this really HOT, HOT, HOT guy.....in a uniform no less, approaches me FROM BEHIND. Naughty, naughty! Though I can't blame him; my ass is one of my many fascinating features.

    He introduced himself as 'Store Security' and asked me "What Are You Doing, Sir?".

    I knew where this was going. More questions and probably of an increasingly personal nature.....as he fantasized about our first romantic interlude.

    No Way! He was cute but I just can't see myself seriously dating someone in such a menial job.

    He looked puzzled, and probably a little hurt, when I explained to him that I wasn't dating these days but I did appreciate his interest.

    It got awkward there so I chose to make a quick exit. DAMN, I forgot my Cherimoyas!

    MuchMoreThanMuscle saidThis one guy tried to hit on me at the grocery store a few weeks back. I was shopping for some Gouda cheese.

    I guess I felt unprepared >


    I'm just shocked... I always thought you were "Mr. Prepared", Adrien....

    What is even better is when the guy, or gal, behind the counter hits on you and doesn't charge you! It's happened in the past a couple of times but that was a long, long, long time ago!

    And, Chris, I think you need to post a pic of yourself in that polo with those shorts so we can all see! icon_smile.gif

    It happened in Walmart grocery section. I was had a lot of fruits and veggies in my cart and this older gentleman came up to me and started complimenting my eating habits and how its nice to see that am not carrying junk food like most young guys. I was running a bit late and wanted to get my stuff and head out quickly so moved and on and then he came across me twice in next 5 mins giving me a smile. Only problem was he was a bit too old for me icon_sad.gif

    So I've been at home sick with the cold from hell for 4 days straight. I've eaten the last can of soup in the house and drank my last drop of juice and I'm dehydrated. So I pull my sweat pants onto my weak, feverish, devastated body and drag my unshaven, unbathed self to the car. As I pull up to the grocery store I know what's going to happen before I even get out of the car......some hot ass dude is going to hit on me. Happens EVERY TIME. No.....not when I'm looking my best. Not when I'm well rested and have been hitting the gym hard and eating right.....but when I look like death warmed over. Someone please explain this phenomenon to me icon_question.gif

    OMG. Something similar happened to me like 2 weeks ago. I was wearing my managers Polo style shirt and Khaki shorts. I was picking up some bananas for work. I picked up 3 bundles and this older guy (probably about mid 60s) comes up to me and asks how I keep bananas fresh for so long. I explained that they actually weren't for me, but for my store and that they would likely be all sold by end of day, or early tomorrow. He explained that he was told that he needs more potassium in his diet, by his hero Dr. Oz and bla bla bla. So the conversation never got into any more depth than me suggesting that he could get a few slightly green bananas so they would last longer and him telling me what a smart young man I am.

    OK, so up to this point it is just a cute older guy vaguely hitting on a younger guy, right? Except that while this whole conversation is taking place, I am backed up against the banana shelf, he is standing like 3 inches away from me and he keeps touching me on the stomach with his index finger every time he starts a new sentence.

    Finally after about 10 minutes, I was able to end the conversation and go. So, why can't I get hit on by someone a little closer to my own age? Yes, I am in a LTR, but that isn't the point. icon_cry.gif

    That's why I didn't visit you in New Orleans! You should have been sick and unbathed. I could tell by the sound of your voice on the phone that you were all pumped up and ready to geaux. icon_lol.gif

    Glad you enjoy. I had assumed that the OP was in total satire.

    Ralph Lauren 'Numbered' Polo shirts are generally worn by the 25 and under crowd-----and NEVER have I assumed that any of those kids actually play polo.

    Funny story though.
