my coworker is actually really annoying. he does this thing where whenever he vents to you he expects you to listen intently, but then literally the MOMENT you respond or start talking about your life he starts checking his phone or his emails and just goes “uh huh…uh huh…” and like its so fucking rude.
also he keeps on telling me how to live my life and why and why not i should be with this boy cause he’s like “oh i’ve been there before.” and how he’s going to give me this book to read after he’s done with it cause he think’s its going to help me.
he also does this thing where he always asks if what i’m wearing is mens or womens and it’s like - it doesn’t fucking matter cause you couldn’t tell in the first place so you had to ask!
and so i just flat out said:
bitch, i already read that book in high school. i came out when i was 13 and i’ve been dating since i was 14. i know myself, where i fit in the gay community, and what i deserve out of men. you do not need to impose your insecurities onto me.
“I used to feel so alone in the city. All those gazillions of people and then me, on the outside. Because how do you meet a new person? I was very stunned by this for many years. And then I realized, you just say, ‘Hi.’ They may ignore you. Or you may marry them. And that possibility is worth that one word.”—Augusten Burroughs (via durianseeds)
