“The Recession Got Me Laid”
Just moments ago, I was chatting with my friend from New York on the internet. He said he met a girl last night. Being the awkward, shy, computer programmer (who recently got laid off) that he is, I asked him how he pulled it off….
“if you’re up front with girls and tell them you’re unemployed and a loser, they just think you’re funny and confident”
This chick is probably excited about knowing the “unemployment rate”, and could totally be like “omg that’s crazy, i’ve been hearing a lot about losers and unemployment these days” This creates a common ground for conversation, which in return gets you laid.
