Flattery will get you Everywhere

My greeting after being gone from work for a few days,

"Ms King do you know Ms ______? You should get her to be our sub from now on. She's, you know, kind of big too."

There were some gestures involved in his description. It was quite nice.

Nice. At least they likey the big girls. Did you ask them "Are you calling me fat?"?

That is a good old unedited teenage boy comment. The minute the words came out of his mouth he knew he stepped in it.

He actually said, "She's cool. You know, she's kinda big too." I think he was just going for common characteristics. He didn't meant it the way it sounded, but you better believe I rode that pony the rest of the day.

And really- who am I kidding? He was just calling it like he saw it.

My friend Pamela went out on a first date once and the guy said, " I like you, you're fluffy!". That relationship did not last.
