weird approach outside the Apple store...

Any guesses as to what this might be? Me and 3 friends were standing outside the Apple store in NYC when a woman in her mid 20's (we're 19-22) comments on my friend's jeans (they were plain). Then she brings up things like football and the subway. My friend with the jeans is shy so she turned her attention to another friend. She points out the building behind the apple store and says she works there.. blah blah. She asks my friend for his number, a week later, today, he's walking out in a suit to meet her somewhere.
The whole thing from the beginning was weird, it felt like she was giving a powerpoint presentation when talking to us. I'm thinking she was doing some guerrilla-style market research, that, or she's a scientologist.

Maybe she's just a Mac person? They are sort of weird.

Um, you and your friends know about sex, right?
That a woman is sometimes involved.
And stuff like that.

Should have asked her if she was interested in a gangbang.

The other day at a gas station in a semi-dingy area of LA, I was approached by a young woman who looked like the stereotype of the spoiled persian girl - lots of makeup, a little pudgy, stylish clothes. She asked me something about could I help her out, because she was supposed to get her paycheck today, she had to go somewhere, blah blah blah.

I refused to help her, but I was mystified because she totally didn't fit the profile of someone who would do the gas station begging thing. As we left the gas station my wife pointed out a pretty, also stylishly dressed, hispanic girl who was doing the same thing.

The only explanation I could think of was they were doing some project for their Psych 101 class or something.

She'll probably end up taking him on a date to an Amway meeting or something.

I hope he doesn't wake up in a bathtub full of ice with a kidney missing.

I think I'd give up a kidney to avoid an Amway meeting.

It's quite possibly a regular pickup, and also quite possibly a Pyramid marketing lead-in.

I would give 50/50 odds on each.

I am totally serious.
