More field tested crap from your's truly..
Grocery Store Openers (Field Tested)
Ok these are two different openers that both worked extremely well for me. Both are designed to be used when your in line at the cash register.
#1) I read this online somewhere (probably this forum) and credit is due to whomever posted it because I've gotten a good reaction every time so far:
-When your about to pay, look at the cashier and nodd towards your target and say very exaduratedly, "ahhh she's paying...". Its funny and you should get a laugh. Make sure you deliver it at a time where the target is paying attention, otherwise if she is putting her groceries on the conveyer and doesn't notice then you might as well have not even said it. Timing is very important for this one. If your timing is off then it will come off as lame and try-hard. This is a more direct opener surprisingly. It doesn't sound like it, but when I've used it, it comes off like your obviously trying to cause an interaction between yourself and the target. It works anyways so try it out..
#2) This one I made up and I like it way better. Its gotten an incredible reaction everytime, not just from the cashier and target, but from everyone who hears it. It works best when you buy a LOT of groceries. Make it known that you've just bought a lot of groceries. Say this to the cashier. When its adding up.. say "awwe jeez this always happens. You come to the store for one thing and ughgughgh... what do i owe ya?" The cashier will usually atleast smile if not make some clever comment back at you such as "i know me too.". Next when your bagging your groceries, this is your opener.. smile and say.. "Now I just need someone to cook it for me..". If you deliver it good, everyone around you will smile and maybe laugh. It makes you seem like a likable guy. Then right after, look at your target. If she smiles, move forward with the following. Nodd toward your target while looking at the cashier and say "i think she's interested..." make sure your smiling and kind of joking. She will probably react in a shy way but I guarantee she will smile or laugh. Then transition..
With any grocery store checkout situation, it is very important that you get the cashier on your team. They are usually bored at work. They are usually friendly and willing to talk to anyone in line. If you use the #2 opener correctly, everyone in line or bagging groceries should smile or laugh. This is so beneficial to you because your target will notice. You've just instantly social proofed yourself with the little time that you have to do so in a check out line. Use it. If you don't like it. Then you fucken suck ass and need to work on delivery better..
I've only field tested #2 3 times but it is such a strong and guaranteed opener that I know it will work for you so I've posted it anyways.. (sorry mods I know I'm breakin the rules but this one is so potent..)

I am not sure if I can do this......
because it's easier to follow her and get in line behind her but in front of her?????
and after I said it, should I just wait there till she pays for it???

I think waiting till she pays is a little risky. If you do transition then you will have to talk to everybody in line so it doesn't look like your holding up the line to hit on her. Plus, it will look a little neeedy if you wait around when your groceries are already paied for and baged. Your just a burden to the line. Its always best to engage them before u pay because you have more time.

Well getting someone in line behind you just have to get lucky. Its not like your walking around grocery stores with the goal of gaming chicks anyways. If you find yourself in that situation then use it. I wasn't planning it or anything the 1st time I did it. But I got a good reaction and remembered to try it again the next time I got a chance. But I don't go out looking for a chance to use it... One of the 3 times I used #2 I was gaming the bagger. Lots of grocery stores have hot younger chicks that bag your shit.
As far as a transition goes... I said I have an opener that works. Transitioning is up to you to figure out and is definetely a challenge for this one. I transitioned the bagger using the classic "you look like someone i know, do you have an older sister?".. she did. So I asked about her older sister and then I was like "well I guess good looks run in the family then eh?" (which was kinda AFC'ish and overly-direct). Looking back I would rather have involved the cashier in the conversation a little more. Play with it, see if u can figure out something better. Daygame is always tough. And if the girl is in front of you then this wont work obviously. Keep in mind, no opener works in every situation..

One I love doing in grocery stores is when a girl has her back turned I'll throw something in her cart like poptarts or pigsfeet or whatever and then make a joke about it. "I never would've thought a woman like you would enjoy pigsfeet..."
I did it in Kroger one night and it led to this attractive MILF asking to go out with me sometimes.
