One night, you’re at the bar. You’ve had a few drinks in you, so your confidence is shooting through the roof. There’s a couple of ladies across the bar, so you think “why not” and do your thing. You open up with a suave “Hi girls, how’s thing?” and receive no response.
Well, not entirely. You notice that the woman rolled their eyes at you before continuing their conversation as if a slug didn’t just interrupt them. There’s nothing to do but smile stupidly while they actively avoid acknowledging your existence. To save some dignity, you bid them adieu with a rushed “OK girls, bye!” and scuttle away to your den. Harsh.
