    there are those moments, where you find yourself in a situation, after someone says stupid shit and you go icon_neutral.gif
    so here is a thread where you can post it and we can laugh/judge

    Yesterday:
    Me: Hi there, how are you doing today?
    Cstomer: I am alright I guess.
    Me: I see I see, so just the dress shirt today?
    Customer: yeah bro
    Me: Nice, going out tonight?
    Customer: Ya, goin out with the boys!
    Me: haha sweet
    Customer: yea, I got kicked out of my girlfriends house
    Me: oh, that's unfortunate. well hopefully you guys resolve it soon
    Customer: haha ya, I am sure it's just temporary, crashing at my brother's, but tonight I got to look fresh, for the boys, you know?
    Me: haha ya I... icon_neutral.gif (and to stop my self from saying what the fuck?, I just shutup)
    ....(SILENCE).....
    Me: have a good night, and good luck

    So I feel that this guy, and perhaps I am out of line, that this guy truly didn't grasp his situation. Because CLEARLY the first course of action after getting kicked out, is to go buy a dress shirt and go out...with the boys.
    I mean he didn't give off the impression at all that his girlfriend did something wrong and I had a feeling that because of how he had positively been blessed with good looks, that it had got him into trouble and he didn't give two shits...then again who knows..

    Mmmm!

    Anyway. icon_surprised.gif *Deactivates Negrolicious mode*

    Umm.. Let's see...Stupid/Awkward Shiz that people said to me...

    Well, it was with this one dude who was head over heels about me and wouldn't take NO for an answer. I had thrown him out of my life due to things which he had done. I tried to end things very gracefully but he called me and said,

    Dude: Hey! I just thought I'd check up on you and see how you're doin'. Is everything okay?
    Me: Yes, _____. Why are you calling me? I thought I made it clear we're no longer on speaking terms.
    Dude: Well, I just wanted to check on how you were doing.
    Me: _____, you know how I'm doing because I'm always at one place all the damn time-- my home. >:/ What the hell?

    Anyway, yeah. icon_surprised.gif People who won't give off yer balls even though you've told them multiple times to get off from it.

    I feel if you bring something up as personal as that you are looking for some sort of compassion or understanding but his plans after just didn't make any sense...I guess that was my gripe, I don't know it was awkward

    Also @ParadiseBoy
    Lol that's a guy who is wishfully thinking quite clearly

    You lost complete control of that conversation.. if you ask someone.."How is your day?"..Expect any answer!

    How about keeping the conversations focused on the obvious..in this case..the shirt!?

    ..If you are not careful..especially in a retail enviornment..people will "unload" details of their lives that you really shouldn't be hearing..things that might put a damper on your day..

    Me at a bar to man who just sat next to me:

    Me: Hi there, how are you?

    Person: I'm fine.

    Me: That's good

    Person: I just got out of prison

    Me: Ohh, what for?

    Person: Murder

    *This wasn't a joke. The conversation continued and somehow I suggested he apologize to the victim's family.


    AWKWARD

    Waaaaaaaay back in the murky depths of the late 1980s I worked retail.

    I quickly learned to keep the customer focused on the subject matter - got him out of the store quicker, and me back to fucking off (assuming the other essential things were done).

    Because not for nothing... I really couldn't give two fucks about that customer's personal life.

    One day while driving the bus

    Me: "Good morning mam"

    Lady passenger: "City hall please"

    Me: "I'm sorry mam this bus is going to the University"

    Lady passenger: "No, I asked you take me to city hall. And hurry up I don't have a lot of time"

    Me: "I'm sorry mam this bus only runs fixed routes, if you would like direct service you should call a taxi"

    Lady passenger stands there for a minute trying to comprehend the situation

    Lady passenger: "THAT IS THE MOST RACIST THING I HAVE EVER HEARD!"

    Lady passenger storms off the bus screaming obscenities

    My female, older, southern boss:

    "What is a glory hole?"
    "Who is the man and who is the woman?"
    "Do you think (insert name of gay company executive) is the bottom?"

    Oh lordy.

    Another bus story

    Male passenger confronts me while driving

    Male passenger: "Driver, why aren't you using your other hand when you drive? It's making me uncomfortable"

    Me: "Sir, it is against regulations to talk to passengers while the bus in motion, please return to your seat"

    Male passenger: "What, is your other hand tired from beating off all day"

    Me: (With a totally straight face) "It was badly injured in the war and hangs limp at my side"

    Male passenger: "I'm very very sorry, I feel really terrible about what I said"

    As soon as passenger exits the bus I laugh hysterically for 30 seconds or so

    Wow, that really must have been one of the most awkward conversation anyone would ever have to put up with... though, I admire your courage for telling the guy to apologize to his victim's family.

    ... 2011

    Me: Guys, I'm gay. Just wanted you all to know.
    Friends: That's cool man, we still love you all the same.

    ... 2012

    Friend: So Steven, any progress in your love life?
    Me: Nah, haven't had much luck lately.
    Friend: Oh come on, there's gotta be at least one cute girl in Engineering.
    Me: Dude... I came out to you like last year.
    Friend: Oh, right...

    ... later in 2012...

    Me: So, I went to this gay club...
    Friend: Why would you go to a gay club?
    Me: Uh... because I am gay?
    Friend: OH WHAT? I didn't know you were gay!


    it's like every half a year or so I need to remind my friends that I'm gay. Oh well, at least it's easier every time that I have to "come out" to them.

    At the gym the other day:

    Random Guy: Yeah make those feet sweat
    Me: Ummm Whaa....Yea ahahaha "puts headphones back on"
    Gives me creepy smile


    I dont know if he was hitting on me...or just had some weird foot fetish, or was just trying to be funny....But one thing is my feet have been the topic of some conversations. Do people like feet that much?

    "So you're gay... but you'd never be like with a girl?"

    "You wanna get married... like don't you need a girl for that?"

    "We're all different." Than the bitch proceeds to talk shit about me as soon as she's situated in her space out of my sight... but hasn't been bright enough to catch on how good my hearing is. icon_rolleyes.gificon_rolleyes.gificon_rolleyes.gif I'm only 3 more feet away!

    I was third in line at a counter waiting to pay for a purchase. A large woman, overly bejeweled, heavily made up, overdressed - at the front of the line paid for her purchases and started to walk away. She'd left money on the counter, so the guy in front of me called to her:

    Guy in front of me: "Wait lady, you forgot your money on the counter there."

    Large woman: "Oh? Was that ALL that I left?" (She seemed to imply that the guy had maybe taken part of it! He hadn't even reached the counter yet. No way did he touch her precious money. If he was a dishonest guy, he could have just said nothing and approached the counter - scooping up her money - which looked like a twenty dollar bill).

    Guy in front of me: "You're welcome!"

    Large woman: "Well, thank you then.......just so long as it is ALL here."

    Me - to myself: "Ungrateful bitch"
