Disclaimer: This thread is supposed to be funny. I don’t need you to come tell me I’m a bitch or full of myself.
For those of you who can appreciate situations like this, your comments are welcome, and I look forward to hearing your stories!
I think I am a generally polite, well-mannered, albeit loud, person. I am friendly and people seem to like me. I try to be nice to everyone. Remember this. It’s important for later.
In my office, we have clear glass windows (not mirrored in any way, shape, or form). They have been doing construction in the building since we opened in October of 2012. The construction workers are constantly walking by the offices and staring in the windows. I’ve posted about that before. It’s creepy.
Some time last week, one particular construction worker kept walking by and kept staring. Around about his 5th round past my office, being the classy lady I am, I gave him “THE FACE” a la Jenna Marbles (I added sticking out my tongue. I may or may not have had a mouth full of sunflower seeds). For those of you who are not privvy to the fabulousity that is Jenna Marbles, here’s what THE FACE looks like:
Just a few minutes ago, that same construction worker guy came in to ask if anyone from our office put boxes in the dumpster (?). I told him I don’t know. Then he goes, “I want to apologize for staring at you… I just honestly think you’re really beautiful.” I said, “Oh, I know.”
I can’t believe those words just came out of my mouth. I am both proud of myself for being so quick, and ashamed that I was so rude. Mostly proud of myself.
Anyone else have something completely out of character to share?

@s2bmrscook: That so rich haha…
I wish I was “quick” with strangers, I only am when I’m joking/talking with someone and I know their sense of humor..
When rando dudes tell me I’m beautiful I just give them an uncomfortably awkward “Thanks..” and the leave the scene ASAP lol

@s2bmrscook: YOU ARE A BITCH AND FULL OF YOURSELF 😀 Just kidding. I had to say it because you asked me not to 😛
I did many similar things back in the days when I went to clubs and bars. One time, there was this creeper who kept staring at me all night. He would constantly walk by and try to push his nastiness against my leg, side, boobs, whatever happened to be facing the direction he was walking. He also made lewd gestures at me (think tongue between two fingers and the like). I gave him similar Jenna Marbles faces throughout the night but alas, it did not deter him.
He finally came over to me and it went something like this:
Him: Hey, baby, you’re hot. I’ve been noticing you all night.
Me: I know. You’re as subtle as a gorilla. Unless you have something new to tell me that I haven’t known for the last 10 years, kindly fuck off and stop staring at me before I punch you in the nose.
I am not exactly known for being demure 😛 I grew up with brothers, what can I say.
