Being a woman in this world often means having to fend off the unwanted advances of creepy guys in bars. For Imgur user lucy2shoes, this means giving out her older brother’s number, who then texts Hannibal Lecter quotes to the unsuspecting suitor.
As you might be able to predict, the Hannibal quotes have nothing to do with the conversation that the unwanted suitor wants to have about Coney Island, your plans for today, and whether you found your phone or not. Someone should tell this guy to watch the Silence of the Lambs, or suggest that he stop asking for the phone numbers and then texting with people who clearly aren’t interested.
Sometimes, though, the unwanted suitor tries to engage directly with Dr. Lecter’s philosophical musings about human nature. For example, when the brother texts, “People don’t always say what they’re thinking. They just see to it that you don’t advance in life.”
To which the unwanted suitor replies, “I want u to advance in life.”
Another great moment comes with this quote: “Think to yourself that everyday is your last. The hour to which you do not look forward will come as a welcome surprise. As for me, when you want a good laugh, you will find me in a fine state, fat and sleek, a true hog of epicuru’s head.”
The suitor’s response: “Why do u chose not to look at life in a positive perspective.”
Don’t worry, he corrects his spelling of “choose” right afterward.
