Matt was having lunch when he noticed some curious behaviour on the table next to him.

I am dining alone at Wagamama and the teenage girls next to me are framing me into their selfies and they think I don't know. #ButIKnow

Matt's approach didn't seem to be going too well...

They're laughing and reading my tweets but still haven't said hello. The young generation, eh?

I want them to be my friends but they have to say hi first because grown ups can't approach teenage girls anymore.

@izzywarner12 no izzy, you'll have to say hello in the flesh. I was born in 1974 and this is how my people do it.
