New word

I was at the McDonald's near the Hyatt downtown, waiting with the crowd for my drink order. It was a Thursday and I noticed there were a lot of people with name badges, so I figured there was a convention going on at the hotel. Beside me, I noticed an attractive man, also waiting for his order. He didn't have a name badge, but he was wearing a golf shirt and dress pants and had a laptop bag over one shoulder, so I assumed he was one of the convention-goers. I noticed him and he noticed me, but that was about it. The next day, I happened to require another McDonald's coffee, so I was at the same McDonald's at about the same time I had been there the day before. As I was standing, waiting for my coffee, I was checking a couple of things on my phone. And then I looked up and over to the cashier for some reason and there was Convention Guy again, staring at me. He was wearing a different colored golf shirt this time so I still contend he was at a convention or meeting of some sort. Anyway, we made eye contact for a meaningful second before he got called to the cashier. Just when he got called, my coffee came up and I was off to work. My new word? I totally Vancouvered that encounter. Sigh.

That you are entitled to the guy's time?
He's just in there getting coffee,and doesn't need to be harassed by you.

The synonym for Vancouvered is pointless?

Vancouver (verb): stage a situation or encounter that one has no intention to take advantage of. "I Vancouvered a trip to McDonalds for coffee so I could ogle the man I saw yesterday."
