“Hot Tip, If You Want It”

posted by on August 30 at 15:26 PM

This just in to Last Days, from Hot Tipper Annie:

Hi. I’ve just moved back to town after a few years away. Last night on a 316 bus, I saw a woman usurp an occupied seat by saying, “Excuse me, would you mind if I sat down? I’m trying to conceive.”

Is it more hilarious that she actually said this, or that it worked?

I assume Annie means the ruse worked in earning the woman a bus seat, not securing her conception. Either way, to answer Annie’s question, the woman’s statement and her bus mate’s response are equally hilarious.

Someone needs to tell that poor woman that's not how it works.

Yet another abstinance education success story.

@1 Do you mean coitus?

Lady should quit usurping seats and adopt, for God's sake. There are enough women out there who just can't seem to STOP having children.

Perhaps it was a maladroit way of propositioning the person whose seat she usurped.
