over the last few weeks, two of the directors of my company have stopped office work to explain their pulling tactics.
1) one boss claims this was used on him by some girl:
works well on the street or whatever. "non pulling" situations:
just go up to someone, tell them you've lost your phone, ask them to ring your number. they get your number, you get theirs and you have a perfectly good excuse to make contact with someone.
aided by having a bag to have your phone in. and lots of pockets. or something.
2) t'other boss claims this worked for him the other night. for clubs.
just point at someone, and wave at them with a dopey look on your face.
somehow, i actually believe this worked for him. apparently it makes you look "fun"
