Hostel Kitchen Line

If you’re in the hostel communal kitchen while a girl is beginning to cook dinner, say the following:

“What time is dinner going to be ready?”

The key to this line is to say it as deadpan as possible. When the girl (or girls) laugh, give them a weird look as if you find it strange they are laughing, as if gringas cook for you all the time. Follow up with, “Oh, please don’t put a lot of salt. I don’t like too much salt in my food.”

The next thing out of their mouth will probably be “So where are you from?” or “What’s your name?”
