8 Places You Shouldn’t Wear Scrubs to Pick Up Women

If you are a male nurse, you’re a knight in shining scrubs. Ladies probably love you, especially if you earned those scrubs at a Utah College. But wearing them everywhere you try to talk to women will look like you are trying too hard. Furthermore, wearing scrubs in the wrong place while trying to spit game will only send the wrong message, no matter what you say. Don’t be caught doing so in the following places:

1

The Hospital

The Hospital

The damsel in distress thing works, but only if the woman is feigning injury, which she probably isn’t doing if she is in a hospital. But if she’s a hypochondriac you’re good to go.

2

Bars

Bars

Even when a lovely lady’s had a few drinks, walking up to her in your scrubs will only remind her how

3

The Gym

The Gym

Anyone who graduated from a Utah College knows that it is stupid to wear scrubs in the gym, but some people are not blessed with such wisdom. What would one even say clad as a nurse while sweating profusely on a treadmill? “Hey girl, do you like the way this stethoscope is draped about my neck while I run?” Or better yet, “May I take your temperature? Because you look really hot.”

4

Funerals

Funerals

This may seem relatively obvious, but some men think women are emotionally vulnerable at funerals, and therefore easy timber to fall into their arms. Although they are emotionally vulnerable, it surely isn’t because of your brio or attractiveness; any pick up line will merely point out the failure of modern medicine in the face of death, and your role as an ineffectual nurse in the center of it.

5

Public Transit

Public Transit

If Utah College students can’t successfully pick up women on subways and public transit, then some guy whose nursing job pays him so well he has to use public transit will fare no better.

6

The Pharmacy

The Pharmacy

Women do not feel attractive at the pharmacy, they feel like they are picking up prescriptions to ameliorate their maladies. Since you’re standing in line there for the same reason, starting a conversation about what brings you there will be less like an aphrodisiac and more like a conversation about hemorrhoid cream and clinical strength deodorant.

7

Laundromat

Laundromat

Then she can see how awful the clothes you wear are when you aren’t wearing your scrubs. Not a good idea. But if you went to a Utah College to get your nursing degree, you probably won’t need to frequent the Laundromat.

8

Airplane

Airplane

If you’re a nurse, you’ll be in high demand on a flight that goes awry, but women don’t like being hit on when they’re about to die, unless they’re into guys like Ted Bundy. Thankfully, if you graduated from a Utah college, you probably aren’t like him at all.
