it's funny...

when somebody starts working at my place of employment!!! you see 99.9% of the people working here are gay. so when ever someone new starts working here people start wondering if the person is gay or a lesbian...if it's not obvious that they are of course. When i first started working here i would get all types of questions.."so where do you hang out?" "have you been to andersonville?" "so how familiar are you with andersonville?" For those of you who aren't familiar with Andersonville, Andersonville is also known as girlstown, lesbianville, etc. There are some other names for that neighborhood but i find them to be offensive so i won't go there. Anyway, i have learned from past experiences that my personal life is mine and mine alone when it comes to my place of employment. So when i was asked those questions i would just smile and walk away. i'm a quiet person as it is...at work that is...so i could get away with just smiling and walking away. I've been here for close to three years and people are still wondering about me!! people give it up!! So anyway, why am i bringing this up? When i walked in the office this morning i saw the new lab guy..who is obviously NOT gay. He started working here two weeks ago and of course the questions started...i over heard one of the conversations "so how familiar are you with boystown?" I just walked away because i think people should focus on other things rather than trying to figure out if someone is gay or striaght..ok so was wondering too but only because i want more straight individuals working here!!! you don't know what it's like working with homosexuals...ok i have alot fun!!! i must admit that this place is alot of fun to work at...at least my department is, don't get me started on the politics and other crap though. back to the lab guy, so the receptionist asked me "sonrisa, is he one of your kind?" "sorry to disappoint you snoop but yes he is?" his response "but he's too cute to be one of your kind!" WHAT EVER!!! a new substance abuse counselor will be starting in two weeks y va hacer la misma historia...

Wow....I bet you have a blast all the time! I am not sure I would let people wonder about my sexuality...i wouldn't want them to think I was gay...having girls hitting on you....that would not be good :)

Folks sound so fascinated with sexuality. Nobody's business. Hopefully, when I finish with this dreadful audit stuff we can hang out.

i agree with mariposatomica, it's nobodys bussiness...
but at the same time, you still want to know. I could never bring myself to ask questions like that though.

marie, my supervisor is great!!! our work can be very intense so him being laid back helps out alot. AND there have been a few girls that have hit on me...i was ready to put a sexual harrassment complaint on one them. it got really bad!! i have to admit that it does bother me when somebody introduces themselves and they look at me up and down...it bothers me because this is work NOT a bar or a place to "meet" people!!!! that's really the only reason it bothers me though.

Mariposa, yeah you are right!! it is nobody's business!! good luck with your audits...la sangria me esta llamando ;-)

Santis, that's what i say too!!! work is work, lets leave all our personal crap personal!!!

Dcn,i do get curious myself too but i'm not going to get up on all your personal business. that's for the individual to tell not for me to ask!! haaay, sometimes i get so frustrated working here because as mariposa mentioned people are so fascinated with sexuality!
