After 20-30 minutes of harranguing your friends finally pry you out of the player's slimy clutches, but that's 20-30 minutes wasted, where you could have been eyeing up the hottie in the corner.
There's a way we can fix this.
You know those bitchy-basturd friends that we all have? They're the ones who don't take shit and aren't afraid to call someone out for being pathetic or annoying. You stick those people on the end of your group!
It seems simple, but it works.
Here's the same situation as earlier... A group of friends at a bar and the pathetic entry-level security clearance forty-year-old player slides up, trying to rope in some good times and your friend, (let's call the friend Sam) turns to the player and says... "Hon, you're way too old for me and I ain't looking for a sugar daddy/cougar to run around with."
The player approaches again from the other end, he slides up and Toni says "Yo, what you doin'. Can't you see we're talking here?!"
Crisis averted. Your time will never be wasted pulling a friend away from a annoying player at a bar again.
It's as simple as 1, 2, 3.
1. Walk into the bar.
2. Arrange the bitches/ass holes at the far ends of the group.
3. Sit down.
