Ok, I meant for this to be a short and sweet post but now that I mentioned Space Club in Florence, I just have to recount a story about the worst (or best depending on how you approach it...) Italian pick-up attempt possibly ever.
Space Club, Florence. Summer 2012, sometime after midnight.
Random Italian: (something in Italian)
Me: I don't speak Italian (don't pretend like you don't all use this line when it suits you!)
Random Italian: oh, ok, ho capito (walks away)
Random Italian returns, takes off his shirt, points at himself and then gives me the thumbs up.
I should point out that what makes this so much better is that the poor kid was probably 15, tops. However, it's just to show that there must be some really 'easy-going' tourists in Florence- this method must have worked on someone in the past! Cin cin!
