Some Guy Accidentally Asked the Accounting Subreddit For Dating Advice, and Then THIS Happened…

…the greatest thing to happen in our little corner of the Internet all day, really.

In any other subreddit, this guy would have gotten hammered for the miscategorization. In /r/accounting, the crew rallies together to give the poor guy some advice that only accountants can give.

Like this:

Try one of these pickup lines:

10."You've got a lovely pair of W-2's."

9."Please, baby, let me withhold you."

8."Technically, having sex with me is a charitable gift."

7."In my office, 'I.R.S.' stands for 'I'm really sexy.' "

6."If I help you screw Uncle Sam, can I be next?"

5."You're entitled to a $5,000 tax break on your municipal bond income…now let's do it."

4."Let's fill out a 1040 — you're a 10, and I'm 40."

3."You're the kind of girl I could take home to mother – which is good, since I still live with her."

2."Lady, you make my pants file for an extension."

1."Nice assets."

I love you, /r/accounting. Don't ever change.
