Boys...

The other day I was working, minding my own busy, cleaning up the staff area at my summer workplace. The staff rest area is right in front of a huge door because it is also the loading and unloading area for the warehouse. While I was sweeping, I was speaking to one of the warehouse guys that I work with. He was down because another guy had been teasing him about something.... Ironically the accused bully was outside by the loading ramp chatting with some buddies who don't work with us. I don't think that I ever say these guys before. Let me tell you., they were a sight.

The two visitors were a couple. I mean this because they seem to feed off of their own insecurities. They had the "brotherhood" thing going on, big chains, oversize Bob Marley t-shirts (what would Bob think about his fans?) , backwards caps and a single diamond stud in their right ears. These guys looked so much like average rebels it made me smile.

Alas! While I was gazing at them and smiling, the three of them looked up. They mistook my smile of muse for interest and smiled back. Silly boys, although they were probably in their mid-twenties, they starting acting like high school boys when they caught the eyes of a pretty girl. The truth is they probably have not been to high school and have not learned how not to get a girls attention in the safe fake environment that high school provides. They started doing anything to get my attention, whisper, laugh aloud, smile, punch each playfully, whistle at me.... you know the juvenile type of stuff. I figured I would make their day and I walked outside to get some water to rise out a disposable dish because I wasn't about to quit my chores because of them. One of them said I should save my "sweet" time and through the dish away. I told them that I care about the environment but they laughed. I knew they didn't understand. One of them, in an attempt to make me feel bad offered me a cigarette. Silly boys!

If I could I would have wore a shirt that read "I have been waiting all this time for a prince of a man.... Don't wast your time."

But then, I wondered.... is that a right attitude?

Ohh dont let the still primitive mating ritualistic behavior of guys get to u. :)
//through the dish away// i think u meant throw. Boys r really silly and think we cant see through their antics.

Seems they were at least trying to be nice. Just because they were no good at it is no reason not to like them.

Did you get a computer now?

Can we expect you to be back on a regular basis?

I wish huh?
