My SS boss. She is one of the most entitled people I know. NO rules apply to her. And while its not a rule, its generally understood that your phone is on vibrate while in the office. Everyone does it, and while some may forget every now and again, this one has hers full volume, all the time. She's been asked time and time again to put it on vibrate, it lasts a couple of days, then she's back to her old tricks.

She and this issue are the reason we, as in my entire dept of 4, moved to the other side of the floor as she could not get alont with our in-house travel agent, who sat near us. the two were at odds about the phone, the multiple conversations the boss had (and in turn, she tried to complain abut the TA being on the phone who was simply doing her job).

So ff to today. Boss usually has her phone glued to her body somehwere, but today she wandered off, and left it. And it rang several times in succession (probably her college-aged daughter who will call over and over and over)>

so the woman who sits on the other side of the cube, politely asked her if she could put it on vibrate, as it rang a bunch of times, and is very disruptive and distrubs us all. Boss lady came back wiht well, there are plenty of things that distrub people, and she said well yes, but YOUR phone is particulary disruptive.  Boss lady then said ok, but in that tone of voice where you KNOW she thinks she's being singled out, and she shouldn't have to do this.  And as the other woman walked away, bosslady says "merowwww" as in how catty! 

we all despise boss lady and her boss, my director, is never here, and can't be bothered which is why she gets away with all she does.

A waitress and former marine was refused a tip on religious grounds.

Don't these people realize that acting rude in this way doesn't help or convince anyone? I don't think religion us enough of an excuse to be rude. And it's not the first time it happened.


How would they even know if she was g@y or not? Just because she had short hair? *SMH* And how does that have anything to do with her waiting on them... if she was g@y did it make her slower or something?

First, yes, all homosexuals (but especially lesbians) are just terrible at waiting tables. Very slow and unhelpful. All of us. Second, of course it's because she had short hair. Only lesbians have short hair. Cutting your hair short automatically makes you a lesbian. Jennifer Lawerence just cut her hair....welcome to the team  >:D.

My mother (who has short hair) has been pestering me to cut my hair for most of my life. She also thinks I'm a lesbian. Does that mean she is trying to convince me to come out of the closet? ;D
You are only young once. After that you have to think up some other excuse.

Yes. And also she's a lesbian.

Unfortunately growing your hair back out will not un-lesbian you. At least it hasn't for me...maybe I need it to get longer...

If your hair is cut short, no wonder the underwear in your hair confused your wife.  You must have long hair to pull that look off. 

Marking that as a definite no on my lesbian radar.  Underwear in the hair means they are straight.

Actually...we both have long hair. We might get kicked out the club soon. Though we've each had short hair, I think it's once you're in you're in...I'll have to check the bylaws.

But yes, lets just assume anyone with underwear in the hair is straight. And crazy.

I find this discussion particularly funny as I have never had so many men aggressively hitting on me as they did during the time period after DD was weaned and I had a buzzcut. Yup, post baby body and very short hair...obviously I needed an extra man in my life.

I think I've heard something about germs too, you know, the kind that will infect you with a love for disco music, will make your chest hair fall (if you're a man) or leg hair grow (for women) and uh, stuff about corrupting the mind of our children was it?

apparently they were not sufficiently warned and prepared to meet lesbians - where is your friend's brunch date when you need her  :D

I am a Dorothy Hamill hair worshipper - love, love my short wedge hair

CRUD MONKEYS! now you're telling me that makes me g@y

No wonder I can't catch a man, they must all think like that!  I used to have big Loretta Lynn hair - it still didn't help my man catching abilities...do you think it's me? I'm straight - should I wear a sign?

Uhuhuh, I laughed, I should tell a (guy) friend to have one done, the bane of his life is not being g@y since that's the only population that's atracted to him. At least it might cut down on the number of times he gets hit on by guys.

I just recently cut my hair short.  My husband is going to be so disappointed.

Of course this is true.  Because we all know that no man will allow his woman to cut her hair short*.  Therefore, by the process of elimination, if she has short hair, she must not have a man, so she must be lesbian.



* I know it's not just me 'cuz I've heard other women say that when they cut their hair short, people ask them "Did your BF/DH let you cut your hair?"

I cut my hair from past-waist-length to less than an inch long a few years ago.  I didn't tell DH ahead of time.  He very wisely didn't say anything until I asked him directly, at which point he told me I looked "one part sexy, one part lesbian, and one part soccer mom."  I told him I was happy with two assumptions out of the three (no kids in soccer yet) and he never said anything more about it.

(I'm growing it out again, but mostly because short hair was a lot more work than long!)
