Funny stuff

So, you know how sometimes you are in a situation and you think to yourself afterward, "If only I had said..."?  Well today, that was not me.  I brought my A game.


I was sitting in whorebucks mixing a track and sipping bad coffee.  There was a gaggle of 19-ish chickeez in college-esque garb.  Given my location, I'd guess they were ditching their classes or just taking up space.  They were loud and i didn't care. 

As i got up to leave, the lead annoying chick looked at me.  She was bottle blonde, wearing flip-flops (of course) and jeans shorts that might have fit her when she was a sophomore in high school...many,  many late night pizzas and beers ago.

Her: (Completely out of nowhere) "That shirt really doesn't work for you."

(My shirt?  Standard issue grey button down dress shirt for client site visits.)

Her friends giggle.

Me: "Thanks for the fashion advice, princess.  Next time, leave the shower shoes at home.  And drop a good twenty pounds before you try to pour your ass into those shorts again."

Stone silence as I finish shouldering my bag and hit the door.

I think that's the age where the hair-pulling etc. has evolved into insults. It's been a while since I was 19 though, so I could be way off.

and start self-harming now. And it'll be your fault. Don't you know that the young can never be criticized or admonished anymore in case they develop self-esteem issues.

Of course, the second the door closed behind you they all started telling her how completely unacceptable it was for you to dare comment on her clothing. And the flying shards of irony will have missed them entirely.

I think clock should reconsider, this is FP material if there was any.

When my friend Paul G. by johnny (4.00 / 6) #19 Thu Sep 17, 2009 at 08:54:29 AM EST
was sworn in as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Senegal, the Peace Corps country director, who lived very nicely indeed in the capital city of Dakar and never made it out to the countryside, told the guys who were assigned to the rural development program (the one I was in), "Remember, you represent the United States of America. So when you go to see the prefect, don't wear those damn flip-flop things you wear in the shower."

Paul was assigned to a village in the Senegal River valley about 50 miles from where I was stationed.  The temperature there was about 110F on a typical summer day. So of course everybody wears sandals or flip flops.

So the occasion comes when Paul has to go see the Prefect (the equivalent of a US Governor, more or less).  He gets dressed up in his finest clothes, including exceedingly hot boots and socks.

"So I got into his office," Paul says, "And the guy's wearing flip-flops.  He looks at my feet and asks me if I'm out of my mind."

So that was in 1975, and ever since then I can't mention flip-flops without saying "when you go to see the prefect, don't wear those damn flip-flop things you wear in the shower."  This tick used to drive my wife nuts, but she's gotten used to it.

She has effectively checked out. She's an un-person of her own making. So it falls to me.--ad hoc (in the hole)

Don't wear shower slippers. Wear dressy flip-flops.

No other choice? by wumpus (2.00 / 0) #28 Thu Sep 17, 2009 at 07:45:58 PM EST
Since the footwear of choice was flipflops or sandals, couldn't he choose sandals? Whether or not you are going to worship the ground Jesus walked on (I've heard Jews say weird things about seeing Christians in Israel), you could at least make the same type of footprint.
