Hitting on Someone

(In an office lounge)

W: Hey, what makes you tick?

M: Err…are you hitting on me right now?

W: What?! Ha ha! No. I'm really interested in how people get pissed off by different stuff. So, I want to know, as a good friend: what pisses you off?

M: Hey, if you're trying to get on my nerves, it's not working. But OK, I'll humor you. Hmm, what makes me mad?... Maybe being ignored when I talk?

W: Ooh, so you like attention? You like this? Me listening, and you talking about yourself?

M: No. Uh, maybe? I don't know! Why do you put it like that?

W: Because you said you hate being ignored, and the best example would be this little talk we're having right now. Don't be ashamed if you like attention. Everybody secretly does!

M: I won't say that I agree. But, yeah, it could be.

W: Now you're just trying to be agreeable. Stop putting on that façade and admit it!

M: Admit what? That I like attention?

W: Yes! It's not that hard, y'know. I can say I like attention too. It's that easy!

M: Hey, what's up with you?

W: What's up with YOU and not agreeing when pretty much the whole time we've been talking I'm already showering you with attention and you keep saying you don't like it?

M: OK, now you lost me. It's frustrating.

W: I'm simply trying to have a great dialogue going!

M: Not working. Can't we just talk about something else?

W: Great idea! How about over dinner tonight, yes? Pick me up at 7!

(door closes)

M: Hey, I did just get hit on!
