    Today was "hey, let's go grab lunch at Hooters" day for a few of my office mates and I. It's a day I look forward to because I loooove... hot wings. Well, you get a bunch of grown children who are mostly married with kids together and the conversation naturally gravitates towards the intellectually stimulating women who are serving us our delicious wings. Our server is particularly pretty today and one of the newer office zombies makes a remark about wanting to vacuum her carpet... he then makes the most atrocious lip freaked face I've ever seen and we laugh, because laughing at something so stupid amongst men is the only socially acceptable thing to do.

    One of us doesn't laugh though.

    The fellow directly across from me is a 37 year old man who, per his claim, has never gone down on a woman and will never do something so disgusting as to put his lips or mouth where it doesn't belong. He looked visibly disgusted when the new guy revealed to us his asipirations for wanting to be a carpet cleaner. It boggled us and we of course asked him the gamut of standard guy questions:

    "Are you serious??"
    "You have never??"
    "Has anybody ever done it for you?"
    "Then why wouldn't you return the favor?!?"

    There were more, but I was too dumbfounded by his disgust about even touching a woman's area with anything but "what God had intended us to touch a woman's area with"... his words... I remembered that quote. This really irritated me for some reason...

    ... when I get irritated, troubling things come to my mind sometimes.

    Me, "Hey *Bobert* (name has been changed to protect the stupid), so you wouldn't even touch a woman down there with anything except your penis?"

    Bobert, "That's a disgusting way of putting it but yes".

    Me, "Let me ask you something... when you were born, did your mother have a cesarean section?"

    Bobert, "Ummm... no."

    Me, "So your mother had a normal delivery..."

    Bobert, "Yes... I guess"

    Me, "Throoouuuugh... her vagina..."

    Bobert, "... "

    Me, "You passed through it brah... head, fingers, toes, lips and everything... technically, you touched it."

    Bobert, turning red, "... "


    At that point, he stepped out "for a smoke" and we sat in awkward silence for a few seconds before laughing in unison. Our server asked us what was so funny, so we told her and she told us we were disgusting but her mouth was wide open when she said it so I took it in a good way.

    We looked at the area outside the window where he was standing and Bobert was wiping his eyes while smoking and we all looked at each other with the same thought... "DUDE! He's CRYING!"

    ... no words were said... just shaking of heads...

    Now I'm back at work and I don't think I want to go to lunch with Bobert anymore.

    I think I'll start packing a bag lunch.

    Normally this would make me cry. But since I was born a cesarean I'm tough as ****.

    Is Bobert gay? If not, married or currently in a relationship?

    knows, you really shouldn't be having such conversations with workmates, it will lead to trouble down the road.

    This was a weird conversation to be having in the first place. No surprise it didn't end well.

    I agree. Why would that dude even say that to begin with? Some things are better left unsaid.

    Just hope this dude doesn't get promoted. He'll probably never let this down.

    Nobody in this story sounds like a character I'd want to sit with during lunch.

    It is amusing, but I was pondering what kind of individual thought that way, and the parade of psychological profiles is disturbing.

    Same here.

    I don't get why some of the posters here are disgusted.

    You guys telling me you don't have "guy talk" with your buddies? What do you talk about, puppy dogs and roses?

    This should have been the moment when you realized the man is some type of crazy. Be careful; he's probably a super villain just waiting to happen.

    Was Bobert crying because he realized that in being born he'd touched a vagina? Or because he felt mocked by the rest of you?

    Either way, from my own experience and what I've heard from friends, it's always best to avoid conversations like that with co-workers. Never discuss sex, drugs, alcohol, or unusual stories with them. It always comes back to bite you. No matter how cool or friendly a co-worker may seem, they'll use what you said to throw you under the bus if it means keeping their job or getting a promotion. There are exceptions but work friends aren't always "real friends."

    A lunch with coworkers in the middle of a working day is an extension of the workplace. If you wouldn't have that conversation at the water cooler with your boss within earshot, you shouldn't be having it at Hooters.

    Assuming this is at least a medium-sized workplace, all "Bobert" has to do is spend 10 minutes with HR and knowsbleed is in trouble.

    I don't have to worry about repurcussions as to what some of you are talking about. It's a mixed military/civilian environment here but "Bobert" is military... single divorced guy... same boat as me and is usually the butt of the joke. He is used to it but today was a fairly revealing day... even for "Bobert". We would never talk about such things with civilians around unless we really knew them. Bobert knows my sense of humor and I'm sure we will be having lunch tomorrow as well... I was exaggerating when I said I would be bag lunching it from now on. In fact, he just stopped by my cubicle a little while ago talking about where we both want to get stationed after here. No harm, no foul...


    ... except for some foulness. :o

    By the way, Bobert's "ideal woman" is a redhaired Jewish virgin woman who is at least 5'10". He's waiting for her and refuses to let us take him to a strip club because it will tarnish his vision of his ginger Jew virgin. Plus he says he respects women too much to go to a strip club... he will tell the strippers "you are too good for this". I'm waiting for the night he will let us get him drunk... because that's when it's going down.

    I'm with Figs here. It's guy talk, and lunch isn't an extension of the workplace as you voluntarily go eat with colleagues and vent among other things. And I heavily doubt HR would anything in that situation.

    He had religious reasons as to why he wouldn't do that...some people are not programmed to like that, or in his case, taught that there isn't anything wrong with doing that...and people are sometimes into certain things. Some people are asexual, although not many...

    And that wasn't a discussion you guys should have been having, but then again, it's Hooters...not the classiest of places...although I would run a 10K for their bleu cheese burger...no..3K..yea 3K...and that's with bleu cheese sometimes destroying my stomach. Hooters closed, the one that was nearby. :whatever: it couldn't pay its bills after remodeling...mmmhmm..and then Buffalo Wild Wings opened in the same town. But I disgress...also your avatar and um this story....:o:o:o
