at work last night:

Pattie: so.. remember the older gentleman with the walker that was having rebate issues that was in here the other day?
Aubrey: oh, Ron... something or rather?
Pattie: yup. he came in again the next day and was just.. loitering... in front of my register while Rick checked on something for him. just.. staring.
Aubrey: hee hee, oh?
Pattie: it was SO uncomfortable. after a long time, he said "so... is Audrey working today?"
Aubrey: yes, it seems he has a crush on me.
Pattie: then he said "i'm in love with Audrey, you know..." and started asking me all these questions, like if you were married and if you liked older men.
Aubrey: ha ha, oh?
Pattie: and then he really wanted me to tell "Audrey" that he was in love with her, wanted me to reaaaallly express that he is IN LOVE with you.
Aubrey: nice.
*store manager rick walks up*
Rick: who is this?
Pattie: the elderly gentleman that you helped with a rebate a day or two ago.
Rick: ha ha, you should go for it, he obviously has money, and he CAN'T have more than 10 more years in him!
Yancey: yeah, totally! maybe he'll let you use his car!
Pattie: and what's ten years?
Aubrey: ha ha, no thanks.

when he had come in the day before the 'I'M IN LOVE WITH HER' incident, he waited patiently until i had come into work, clocked in, did a delivery order for someone, and got situated, and then would have nothing to do with ANYONE else other than me, Audrey. he wanted help with laser printers, which i know enough about, but was not nearly expert enough to even begin to answer the questions he had (inkjet printers, on the other hand, i can babble about until i'm blue in the face and beyond.), which was frustrating. he sucked up almost an hour of my time, as management was tapping their toe, trying to get me counted into a register. frustrating not necessarily because.. well.. there were several people there that were more adept at answering his questions than i was, and i hate feeling stupid as i have to ask questions repeatedly over the radios.

something tells me that i should think the whole thing is creepy, but i guess i just don't have the energy in me to do so. i think i may have mentioned him months ago as the one of the only two guys that had asked me out in over a year: a 70 or older man, and a guy that was OBVIOUSLY off his rocker, twitching as he looked at legal forms. "hi. will you go out with me? can i have your number?" "um.. we just met, no."

i need to kick start my romantical life a bit, methinks. doesn't help when there is entirely too much going on in my life to even consider anything SERIOUS. there's things that i need to take care of on many levels before i consider something like THAT. wouldn't be fair to either of us, i suppose.

but first, i really need to finish this article. today is the last day. so far, so much of it is filler. ROCK!

only thing i can remember dreaming last night was something about a bird vomiting on someone's shoulder. it was a weird sleeping night, too, as i would wake up a lot, in different odd positions, like on my back with both hands tucked under my neck.

Ha! I went through a period of time like that as well. I got asked out or hit on by the strangest, most inappropriate men! My favorite was the 60 year old, one-legged bus driver, back when I lived in Maine and was temping as a receptionist at a neuro-rehab place. He asked me out to "suppah." I think I actually laughed, which I feel kind of badly about.

It turned out well in the end. I have a perfectly appropriate boyfriend now. Although... he is ten years older than me! (Seems to matter less, now that I'm in my 30's.)

People are funny. I once was working at a gas station and had 40yr old hit on me. I was 19 at the time. That wasnt the funny part. I asked him his name, he told me. (Mind you I had never met him before, I just knew from the desricption and the fact I was told he lived around there who this was) I asked him if he knew my biological incubator (He did, he was married to her once) He said yes. I said "Hi, I'm here first born child."

Never saw him in the store after that. He started coming in on another shift. The only time I saw him after that was to see my half brother.

at least you haven't been asked out by not one, not two, but 4 (count 'em) homeless guys. Don't know why they have so much confidence - probably they think my glance and smile in their direction is all the encouragement they need. Should I take it as a compliment? Or do I just look easy? Perfect ornament for a homeless person's arm? Like I'll blend in or something?

Ok ok so I worked for a newspaper dedicated to social justice and sold entirely by homeless vendors, so it's not like I'm a total homeless-hating clown. But it does make me sort of sad when that's the most manly attention I got last year (thankfully things picked up a bit this one).

I guess the point of this is me saying -I feel your pain-

your response reminded me of a virtually homeless guy that would come to wal*mart all the time in phoenix (when i worked there, of course.) he complimented me on my fingernail polish, then.... glomped my fingers into his mouth. all i could do was stare in horror at him for a few moments until i yanked my hand back.

being a woman ROCKS.

*snicker* It's funny, that's what it is. I LUB YOU AUDREY!!!! Audkabob just doesn't have the same floooow, which is probably why you've lied about your name for so long. *snicker*

ha ha, it's true. i had an audrey come through my line recently, right around my age. when i said "i get called you a lot!" she said "i know, you've worked her a LONG time!" at first, i was afraid i had offended her by saying that EVERY time she came in, but she was totally cool about that.
