Drunken swenglish

Drunken guy at 7/11: Can I learn you?

Curiosa: No, you cannot.

Edited to add: (The rest of the conversation was even better).

Drunken guy: It's because I'm black, isn't it? (obviously had been watching too much Ali G., as was pointed out by Cold Feet this afternoon)

Curiosa: No, that has nothing to do with it. It's because you're drunk and I'm busy.

Drunken guy: Can I at least by you a coffee?

Curiosa: No, I don't drink coffee after 5 pm.

is the no-way-that-you're-gonna-get-to-know-me part restricted to strictly creepy guys, or is it a common rule for all MAN-kind (whereupon this rule might apply, depending on what assumptions are valid)

it really is restricted to creepy guys. it just so happens that most men you meet at 7/11 at midnight on a saturday night generally fall under the category of "creepy" or at least "drunk."

did he want to teach you something or simply get to know you - or in swenglish - learn to know you better?

i think he wanted to learn to know me better. but at midnight, while i was blogging, i was in no mood to be "learned" in any sense of the (swedish) word.

You know, the worst (and funniest) thing is that the typical drunk Swede's pick-up-line sounds just as bad in Swedish =)
