A very shy young man was in a pub with friends on Valentine’s Day night and spotted a beautiful young woman sitting alone at the bar.
After an hour of encouragement from his mates he finally went over to her and said tentatively, “Would you mind if I brought you a drink?”
She responded by yelling, at the top of her lungs, “No, I won’t sleep with you tonight!”
Everyone in the pub started staring at them. Naturally, the bloke was terribly embarrassed and he slunk back to his table red-faced.
After a few minutes, the woman walked over to him, smiled and said, “I’m really sorry if I embarrassed you just then. You see, I’m a graduate student in psychology and I’m studying how people respond to embarrassing situations.”
At this the man responds, at full volume, “What do you mean? $500?”
