And This is What We Call “A Gentle Let-Down”

21 05 2009

With the deconstruction of The Aud, there are a number of demolition men around the lot where YOT has day care.
Honestly, I can’t complain about the demo guys. Maybe they’re different then construction guys; being that they cat call AFTER you’re out of earshot.  These guys are pretty nice. They wave to me, petty conversation.
On my walk in yesterday, there was a new guy who gave me the usual, “How ya doin’? Have a good day!”
I saw him on the way back to YOT, he was directing traffic as another portion of street perimeter wall was coming down. Meanwhile, there was a tourist who was lost and the construction guys didn’t know where Church Street was. I helped the tourist and the New Guy waves me over.
“Hey.”, he says.
“Hey.” I reply.
“Have a good day?”
“Suppose so. You?”
“Yeah. You married?”
“Yup.”
“Okay, have a nice afternoon then.”

I’m compelled to share my last similar experience.

Place: Little Italy, NYC

“Come eat at my restaurant”
“No, that’s okay, I already ate thanks!”
“I can make you hungry again!” (Lecherous look)
“DID YOU REALLY JUST SAY THAT”
YES… (DOUBLE lecherous look)
– hysterical laughter, combined with an offer of a massage and free food…

EWWWWWW!!!!!
Must be your real boobies 🙂 They hold all the power.

No wonder people fall into stereotypes!

(for the record: Steve gave me the “all clear” to reply “It depends, what’s in it for me?” the next time a demo guy asks about my relationship status. Thank hun.)

Short of well polished & sparking rock on ones ring-finger (or possessing the Jedi mind-tick) seems to me that one must verbally express interest (cat-calls count, don’t they?) in an attempt to provoke a mutual interest. If male is shut down, He’ll likely resort to Jackson Browne’s ode to loneliness song “Looks like it’s me & you again tonight, Rosie”

Be well & good cheers !

Demo guys are the same as construction guys…especailly in this economy.

@ MTAE: my construction guys are very, um, forward. The demo guys are more subtle. Then again, they get a birds eye view of my cleavage…

How nice! Seriously. To have a guy ask you politely, seemingly to care. Hope he finds himself a lady friend soon. And you know it totally made you feel wonderful! Yay!
