Forgot to mention this gem:
Went out last night, sat down at a table across from the female friend I was with, server comes over asks the following:
Server: “Hey! Is this a late Valentine’s Day celebration for you two?!”
Us: ” . . . . . ” (exchange glassy-eyed, head slightly tilted blank stares)
Us: *look at server* “Oh, no, we’re just… getting away from work.”
(1) My Dad once asked me if I was a lesbian because I expressed extreme annoyance for children;
(2) My Brother recently asked me if I was a lesbian because I never have mentioned my love life to him.
… and I still repeat: I like men. (but apparently I give off the alternative vibe)
Regardless, my friend and I were baffled, but it was a good laugh considering all else.
BONUS: it’s now socially acceptable (at least in our specific region) to assume that a same sex pair of individuals who are sitting together are in a relationship. Thumbs up.
P.S. Best line of the night: “My god, you dated Rain Man.”
