The Accordion Guy has posted several MP3 recordings of the (apparently) classic 1970’s self-help cassette by Eric Weber titled Picking Up Girls Made Easy. I’m just listening to “the boldest of pick-ups”, The Women’s Clothing Store Pick Up:
Frank himself had put on some really sharp sport clothes, because you can’t operate in a clothing store looking like a bum, since the girls in stores are always very clothes-conscious.
In my experience, it’s difficult to pick up girls anywhere while looking like a bum. There’s a fantastic payoff line in the clothing store recording, where Frank’s quarry exclaims, apparently without irony, “wow, you’re some operator!” More 70’s sexism and stilted dialogue ahead.
