#1 “The girl I dated before you was a 23-year old stripper.”
#2 “I live with my mum. It’s just easy.” Not,“The ex got the house and I’m temporarily living with my mum.” Not, “I’m currently and actively looking for a place of my own.” Just, “…easy.”
#3 “Well that was nice.” NICE???? A ringing endorsement if ever there was one!
#4 “I have next week off and I’m going to spend it watching 70 episodes of Star Trek back-to-back.” Ah, a real get-up-and-go type then… !!
#5 “How much do you earn?” Would you like to know blood type and next of kin too?
#6 “I just can’t afford to pay my ex-wife maintenance for the kids.”
#7 “What time am I playing golf in the morning? Depends what time you’re making my eggs.” Two words. Dream. On.
#8 “So how many urchins is it that you own then?” And by ‘urchins’ you would be referring to children?
#9 “Remind me of your name again?”
#10 “My mate reckons you’re too old for me. I usually go out with girls MUCH younger.”
