    So what's the best method for a customer to chat up an employee at the store without getting them in trouble.  
     
    Assuming they are a cashier or something like that?  
     
    There is a person I have noticed in my local Fry's that is absolutely beautiful and I'd like to get to know her, but don't want to get her in trouble or come off wrong.  
     
    Thanks!

    There's this amazingly good looking guy at my Frys, but last I heard he was with a cashier for a year and she was pregnant. So I can't tell you. It was a completely pointless story.Superhero!

    Hmm.  
     
    Buy a lot of small stuff. Components is good for that. Stuff for like 30 cents or whatever. Make sure they are different. You will be stuck at her register for quite sometime.  
     
    Or just write a check. Heh. However, that is a double edged sword. She will either not mind, or completely hate you since the check approval process takes forever.Why is there an S in Lisp?

    Wow, that sounds pretty interesting.  
     
    I'm just looking for lunch or a drink with the girl I am interested in if it even goes that far.  
     
    She usually works as a cashier, so I don't know how I'd get a chance to interact with her.  
     
    Hmmmm

    Have a small date in the store.

    Ask if it would be ok for her to take a 10 minute break for a little date in the cafeteria.

    Guest and Guy from Duluth, those are great ideas. Thanks for the replies.  
     
    She really is gorgeous and exotic looking and I'd love to chat her up.

    The entire reason I first came here was to proclaim my love for him but alas, he was taken and no one here is in Arizona anyways. Of course now I'm not interested in him, but he is still good looking.Superhero!

    Double dittos on meanside100's comment about being 12.  
     
    Next time you're there, have the cajones to tell her that you'd like to meet her, apart from Fry's so that she doesn't get into any trouble, offer to meet her for lunch or whatever (and YES, make sure you pay the meal or whatever), give her your cell phone, and tell her that you look forward to hearing from her.

    LOL on the comments about my age.  
     
    First of all she is a different ethnicity than I am, so I always try to take that into account as well. Most cultures don't appreciate brazen young men coming on strong so I'd rather take the safe route than look like the proverbial typical L.A. idiot, which I am not.  
     
    More importantly, I haven't worked a retail job in twenty years but I do know that socializing while on the clock is frowned upon. I wanted to get an insider's view from an employee who works at Fry's to get the best approach.  
     
    Obviously the 12 year old comments are bait to try and get me to reply with ad hominem responses, but that's not my style.  
     
    AyaHu is much closer to portraying where I am coming from.  
     
    Thanks again. :face-smile:

    Well now you sound like one of those psuedo intellectual semi-nerdy (Born of the 80s.) Plays the computer for often but cannot list themselves as developer, who loves asians. You probably have seen animes and mask your liking for them knowing you might be considered a weeabo. You probably speak a little chinese and/or Japanese and may even know some Hiragana. You would say you "Like" or "Prefer" asian aesthetics, but in your "intellect" have not yet realized that you are no different than the other weeabos. You probably do not believe in god, but are not an atheist. I would guess you have some buddhist influences.  
    You probably also have an appreciation of fine Indian women. You'd use that as a comeback.  
     
     
    The 12 year old responses are by no means bait, it is your psuedo intellectual reasoning telling you that. They were commentary on the grammatical structure and formulation of your sentences, any non weaboo would find your sentence structure odd for complimenting a woman.  
     
    Unless of course she is Jamaican. ;DSuperhero!

    Nope...not trying to beat up on you with the age issue. Just reminds me of stuff that I went through at that age (some things never change). Understand the comment about different cultures. Definitely something to take into account. However, having dated those of different ethnic backgrounds (Indian, Israeli, and Jordanian), many are "westernized" - i.e. they've adapted to many of our US customs.  
     
    The main point being, ask (with the above factors in mind). The worst that can happen is "thank you, but I have a tupperware party to go to".

    Point taken, and thanks for the clarification.  
     
    No matter what age, I think we can all agree that when encountering an attractive person we want to talk to or get to know, there is a chance to get weak kneed and giddy, regardless if they are Cindy Crawford or a Fry's checkout girl! :face-smile:

    Next time you see her cashiering, just walk around the line and go straight to her. Tell her you'd like to apply for a Fry's card, they have quotas to meet. After she's done with the transaction you are interrupting, she'll take you off the the side to apply for a Fry's card. In the event she points you to another associate, just tell the other guy you forget your ID and will be back later. Actually sign up for the Fry's card, you can cancel it later. Once you're approved, (hopefully) give her your number! Good luck.  
     
    Tupperware parties sound awesome.

    There was some paper that said a cold reader could say there was a scar on your knee and 80% of people will agree. There are some other good ones in there too. I forget them all, but I do have a scar on my knee, so does my twin, and most of my friends.Superhero!

    You should introduce yourself and ask her if she would be interested on having a coffee or a drink which ever she'd prefer and get to know one another, simple and cut to the point no making yourself look like an idiot or trying too hard with extra little things or saying in between. As a female, I would rather have a guy that was interested in me ask me something like this instead of coming up to my register and checking me out without saying anything. It's all about having confidence in yourself. I also feel like asking to go out for drinks is better than asking to go out for dinner because having a drink means only having a glass or 2 and getting to know one another in a quick moment and hey if the dates going well maybe it can also proceed to dinner. Dinner on the other hand is kind of messy especially if the date isn't going well, you're left with the check and a stale date that's maybe going to last longer than the both of you wished it had. But here's my other input, dating a coworker isnt such a good idea. I hope I've helped in some way. Simple and straight forward....no corny lines=big turn off :)
