The Local Flavor: Inappropriate Sexual Remarks

Remember when I told you about the man who hates tattoos on women? Well, he was back today, and got his first gander at the new octopus on my left arm. I swear to whatever you want me to, people, this is exactly what he said: “I don’t think I could ever make love to you because I would be too busy reading everything on your body.”

I pretended like I didn’t hear him. Him, the 70-plus-year-old, obese, sweaty, pasty misogynist with the cirrhotic, W.C.Fields-ish nose. He repeated himself again, word for word, at which point I responded with what I call my “Grandma Switch.” You know, the part of you that won’t let you scream or swear at a person because they’re old, or because you’re at work and you don’t want to get fired? I said, “Yeah, you should see my back. It gives my husband a lot to look at when he’s behind me.”

Yes, that was inappropriate, too, but not nearly as inappropriate as my initial reaction would have been, where I wanted to say, “Yeah, that’s not really going to be a problem, because I would never fuck you, you disgusting old pervert.”

  1. What an incredibly inappropriate jackass! Any way that your boss would ban him from the store? You should not have to serve him after a remark like that. Seething for you.
