Default That's The Power of Love!

SHORT VERSION at bottom for everybody who only clicked on this to see a picture of the girl. Sorry there is none lol

Full Story here:

Had a bit of an adventure today. There's a really cute girl at the local Target store and I always end up in her checkout line and haven't really had the nerve to say anything to her besides the usual "hey how are you doing" routine. She has that giggly happy vibe to her, always smiling and wearing odd earings, or a shirt with stars all over it. Just seems like a happy person with a fun childish attitude (much like my own lol). And the one day she wore a red flower in her hair and I coulda sworn my face was beat red from blushing; and as luck would have it one of the things I bought didn't have a barcode. So I'm standing there like a total dope with all the time in the world, waiting for a manager to figure out the price, and naturally I choke.
I'll admit to some facebook creeping (as low as it is lol) and I saw stuff about Pokemon and Star Wars, so now I'm really diggin this chick.

But now comes the puzzle...really cute girl thats into the same things I'm into, but she doesn't know that I know unless I admit to facebook creeping her lol. How do I go from 1 out of 1000 guys she's seen today to the guy who shares common interests and is into her because of the interests we share, but she doesn't know I know she's into?

So I do what any clueless guy does: I talked to my equally clueless buddy and he comes up with a BRILLIANT plan, one that could only be devised by two stupid dudes who know nothing about meeting women: We decided to go there and buy a bunch of stuff so that we would have a lot of time at the checkout, try to talk about he Star Wars event I was going to tomorrow hoping she would overhear, and buy Star Wars stuff with the hopes she would make a comment about it. Cuz ya know, this kinda stuff always works out in the movies.
We clink our plastic bottles of Coke in a toast to our own genius and discuss the plan in detail:
Him: "We'll get a bunch of Star Wars and say its for your brother!"
Me: "I don't think she's going to ask who its for, dude"
Him: "Right..we'll say its for toys for tots then"
Me: "So my first impression is to be that I lie. About donating toys to poor kids. Great plan... Actually I do have an event tomorrow I could give them away as prizes so that works out."
We were to get the toys and some other stuff and then go to the checkout line where we discuss tomorrow's event, at which point she picks up the "Fortune Wookiee" book I was getting for my brother and asks what it is. Star Wars sure, but an obscure book. I tell her about the book (I think its like a 4th grade level book but I found it to be pretty amusing). She's interested in reading it and asks what event we were talking about; I describe the 501st and that I'm a Scout Trooper. She's impressed, its now out in the open that we both like Star Wars, and its Casablanca time! Well..not the "you need to go be with the other guy cuz I got sh-t to do" part, but the "beginning of a beautiful friendship!" part
I mean don't get me wrong she's beautiful and yea I'd like to try and date her, but even if we just became friends I'd still be happy. I could use some happy into-cool-stuff female friends lol
But in the imagined version of the story she's like overwhelingly awed by all this and we exchange numbers and meet up outside of Target like normal people and go to dinner and hang out and have all kinds of fun. It all sounded crescent fresh so we high fived ourselves again on such a not-that-well-thought-out plan and went to it.

First I had to go to the bank and cash in my change, and the machine must've been broken because it counted my pennies as nickels and put a few dollar coins on the list (All I had were pennies and quarters lol). SO basicaly I went from about $15 to $54.


Now the fun [Ranger-related] part. I guess you could say the whole point of the story really. In my rush to get to Target and find out if she was actually there, I sprint across the parking lot, jumping over bushes and dodging traffic. Got to my truck, having pushed the unlock button at least 87 times since I left the bank, and then I literally RIPPED THE HANDLE OFF MY DOOR. Like I was the Hulk. Just...SNAP there it goes.

After a moment of being dumbfounded with the plastic remnant in my hand, I just crawled in through the passenger side and roared over to Target.

And for anyone that is curious, I used the extra cash to pick up some Star Wars figures to give out as prizes tomorrow at a 501st event. All part of the master plan where the girl sees them and says "OMG I love Star Wars" and then I reply "Wow me too!!" ::cue awesome 80s movie date/fall-in-love scene montage::

Unfortunately that didn't happen. At all. lol
So Operation Bullseye was a complete disaster and now my door handle is broken


SHORT VERSION!
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Theres a really cute girl at the local Target that I'm into. Me and my buddy came up with a terrible plan (buy a bunch of stuff) to try and talk to her. In my haste to get from the bank to Target, I ripped the door handle off my truck.
Plan didn't work so I'm back to square 1. And entering my truck via the passenger door til I find a new handle.

lol

Is someone love crazy much? Haha. At least you go after the girl.
There is this one girl at my school who I am just crazy for. We've talked to each other last year and I think we actually became friends. It all started going down hill when I started driving the Mustang to school. She drives a Black Mazda 6 thats pretty nice, and well a Mustang beats a Mazda. So Yeah...I eventually apologized and now I don't know what to do. I'm still crazy for her.

----------

Oh and thats a lot to read so I didnt read it all.

You missed the whole point! This wasn't about a girl, this was a story about me breaking my door handle off! Lol jk dude

Sorry to disappoint, I just didn't feel right putting pictures of her on here since I don't actually know her or anything. Finding her on facebook felt creepy enough lol

At least you go to school together and are pretty much forced into a social setting for long periods of time lol
I'm done school so I never really figured out how to meet people outside of it..and her being a cashier I have like 48 and a half seconds to interact with her lol

Oh and I edited it for you guys with a synopsis at the bottom lol

Gotta admit I never saw it but if it helps I'll have to look into it haha
And yea I know I'm not sure if she was smiling at me because she recognized me (pretty sure im the only guy in the country that wears a Legoland Florida hat) or because she's a nice happy person and its part of cashiering lol

I always see my attempts at hitting on her or flirting ending up more as "some creepy guy was hitting on me at work" instead of "OMG the cutest thing happened to me at work today!" when she talks to her friends haha

Thanks tho!

Between myself and my mom needing stuff, usually a couple times a week. Now that its Xmas time and I know theres a really cute girl I go every chance I get lol
First time was last saturday and I've already run into her 4 times including today. And by "run into" I mean saw what line she was in and got in it. I actually put stuff I needed back so I could go thru the express where she was haha

Hahaha yea i'll save those tactics as last resorts.. See this would be one of those times where I wish I knew for certain if the world was gonna end. Then I could just be like "Yea I facebook creeped you but I really like you and I think it would be awesome if we got together. And we only have like 4 weeks left so lets go!"

Next time you go to target, pay in pennies so you can have a good amount of time to talk to her lol.

I know how you feel Dennis with some girl at some retail store or something familiar. Everytime I go to Burger King for lunch there is this girl that always smiles at me when she gives me my order. I usually go through the drive thru so I'm not sure whether she does that for everyone or she has something going on for me or my truck. Ha.
Just somehow try to start a casual conversation with that girl in Target. Its going to be hard but if she was worth breaking your door handle for then a conversation is the least you two can have.

Haha it seems like if you don't go, they have a thing for you. If you do she's just being nice and tired of every guy she smiles at trying to hit on her

Since she's on register and the store is usually crowded (esp xmas time) its hard to try and talk to her. My only real 'in' is the extra stuff she wears I can comment on. Like her earings or necklaces. I've seen the Monster "M" and some other Millenium Puzzle looking thing so I'm hoping for some Tri-Force or a Pokeball haha

Just afraid she might be the 'holiday help' and time IS in fact running out - end of the world or not

this is what I would do. write down your number. next time thru the checkout lane just say to her hey, heres my name and number when you get off work call me. Id like to talk to you outside of work and I know these are bad times what with being all the x-mas shopping.

Almost all relationships start because a guy/gal is attracted to them. You dont need a reason other than you think shes very pretty and you would like to get to know her.

man up, be stong. You got 50k ranger guys here who have your back!
