Say “You could do better than this place”
Do you say that to the fast-food worker when you get your mega-meal at the drive-thru? You’ve not only degraded my industry, but simultaneously taken part in the service it provides, as if that is not hypocritical.
Say "You’re different than these other girls”
That’s quaint, because lots of women working as strippers have heard this line, verbatim, from many, many other guys. Maybe you should date them! It seems like ya’ll have plenty in common.
