I was queuing at a Starbucks one afternoon in Istanbul, Turkey, when a Caucasian girl came up to me from behind...
|Girl:||Excuse me, are you from Toronto?|
|Me:||Me? Toronto? Err... no... what makes you think I'm from there?|
Oh! I just thought you are... because of the bag *pointing to my plain Crumpler messenger bag*
*She then turned around and left*

Until today I have no idea what actually happened. It crossed my mind that it could have been a ruse to distract me from something but I'm not sure what. It could also have been a bet made between the girl and her friend(s) but I think she was alone. My friends however, when I related the story to them, are almost unanimous in saying that it's a pick up line. What? A pick up line? Really?? Are you serious?? *facepalm*
Have you ever experienced something which you couldn't really make heads or tails of while travelling? (And if the above was really a pick up line) have you ever received a bad pick up line? Or maybe the best ever? Care to share?
