I didn’t know whether it would be better to go for a simple greeting or an attention-grabbing joke.
In September 2016, Tina Bianchini, a former Jackson Police Department officer, amended her federal complaint filed in June 2016 to include details about a consensual sexual relationship she allegedly had with Jones who was her superior.Once she ended the relationship in December 2014, "Jones retaliated against her and refused to assist Bianchini in landing a position in the Crime Scene Investigations Department, a position he promised her during their consensual relationship," the filing states.7) I spot John, a smart-looking bloke with a buzz cut chatting to an older group of guys in the smoking area. I’ll give you A, B and C if you give me the D.’ I can’t believe I’ve said this to a total stranger and, once he’s stopped laughing, he tells me it’s awful then changes his mind and says he gives it 8 or 9 as a line. Men are amazingly forgiving when it comes to being chatted up – no one gave me a hard time. Go out as a trio rather than a pair to try these out so, if one of them works well, the other isn’t abandoned. It takes guts to chat someone up, especially if the person you like is in a group of friends, so maybe don’t be so brutal next time someone approaches you. It doesn’t really matter what you say as long as you say SOMETHING – staring wistfully at a hot guy / girl won’t get you anywhere. Amazingly this direct approach works well – he instantly gives me his number and, much to the annoyance of the friend I’m out with, we chat for 45 minutes. Effectiveness – 9/10 – If you’ve got the guts for this it’s a winner 8) I approach a blond basketball player called Tim and motion him away from his gang of five mates. We have a very brief chat but he soon tells me to enjoy my night and goes back to his friends, the poor lad. Effectiveness – 8/10 – Funny, flattering and not sleazy. 3) I introduce myself to a ginger guy called David and his tall, cute friend and ask if we can sit with them. Plus who wants to carry ice about and get their hands all wet?
2) I spot a handsome Mediterranean-looking guy going for a cigarette with his mate. They say yes and we end up talking films because they work at the cinema. 5) The problem I have with this line is it takes me quite some time to find a man whose shoes I genuinely love.He laughs, says ‘wow, that’s a hell of a line’ but admits he has a girlfriend.He says if he didn’t he’d have given me his number, though, and I leave, pleased I appear to have made his night. But it gives me the chance to establish he has an accent so, after being given a lighter and cigarette I don’t need, I chat to Pedro and Flávio about Portugal. Effectiveness – 7/10 – Really good but best to use it if you actually smoke…Bianchini's original complaint alleged JPD threatened to fire her because she is white. Bianchini was forced to resign from JPD following a domestic violence dispute between her and then-Jackson Mayor Tony Yarber's bodyguard, Aaron Allen. Bianchini alleges the police department racially discriminated against her and gave preference to Allen.Bianchini and her attorney Lisa Ross signed an agreed order dismissing Jones as a defendant in the case.‘Excuse me, would you like to play an alphabet game?
