Read the following paragraph paying attention to the phrasal verbs.

When I was a teenager I used to hang around in the park with my friends because there wasn't much to do in my hometown. Sometimes, when I wasn't feeling shy, I would ask out girls. Sometimes they would say yes, usually no. When it was too wet for the park, I would call on my uncle Peter. He loved cars, so we would mess around with old engines, trying to get them to work. Because he worked nights at a factory, I would always take off from his place at around dinner time. Then at home I'd stay up late watching TV. I'd never turn in before midnight.
