yeah, that’s always a shame. but kenny dude. he was completely cracked and AFTER EP4 I WAS NOT HAPPY WITH HIM

Yeah though he did apologise for it and he was grieving so I kinda was okay with it but tbh he’s been horrible most of this season and it got much, much worse in ep 4 and 5 and just dude.

This drives me mad. I used to work in a bookstore, and was talking to my coworker and he just yelled out “stop flirting with me!” at this ridiculous volume and it was humiliating because 
1. I wasn’t
2. I got in trouble for acting unprofessional 
3. He embarrassed me in front of a line of people
4. And he only stopped insisting that I was flirting when my boyfriend (who is now my husband) said, “dude, trust me, she’s not flirting with you” to him

That asshole respected my BOYFRIEND saying I wasn’t flirting more than he respected me saying it and I was the one who was talking! The whole scene got me in trouble at work. And the most ridiculous part is we were talking about a fucking book. In a bookstore.

One time, my ex boyfriend had a crush on some girl, and said that he thought he might have “a chance” with her.

When I asked him what made him think that, he said “Well, she talks to me.”

And this is why it is so difficult to be a girl and be friends with men who are attracted to women.

Can we also add that this is why a lot of women do the resting bitch face when out in public. Cause dudes swear a glance or a smile is flirting.

So yesterday something that perfectly illustrates this happened. I work at a fast food place and this guy comes in at 7am on a Sunday, still probably drunk from the night before, and when I smiled and said goodmorning he said “Did you just say that because you’re being paid to say that?” 

I repressed my urge to sarcastically answer, and said “Nope, I just enjoy saying hi to everyone!” To which he responded, “Oh, so you weren’t flirting with me then.”

Dude, I’m not flirting with your gross 7am-on-a-Sunday-ass, trust me.

My defense mechanism when I’m uncomfortable at work is to smile, so I did that and said “Is there anything I can get you this morning?” to which he responded,

"There, you just smiled! What does that mean?"

At this point I was fed up, so I said, 

"I smile at everyone sir, its just what I do. What can I get you, coffee, a bagel?"

And he said “I’m gonna be watching to see if you smile at everyone. I don’t like it when girls lie to me” and then ordered a coffee and a muffin like he hadn’t just said something at 11 on the “Is this guy a serial rapist” scale (where 0 is ‘no’ and 10 is ‘Yes, run away as fast as you can right now.”).

Then he sat there for another hour and a half, staring at me from his table. When he got up and left he came back to the counter, and said “You do smile at everyone. That’s fucked up.” and walked out.

I can’t even be innocuously polite and pleasant to people at my job (where customer service is the number one thing we are supposed to be focusing on) for fear of this shit happening. What happens if he had decided to wait until my shift was over? 

New Rule: If she’s at work, SHE’S NOT FLIRTING WITH YOU.

Duuuude I was training mother fuckers at my old job and I had at least three dudes hit on me. One accused me that I wasn’t really married because I didn’t wear a ring. One of them knew I was married but just wanted to inform me that he liked me.

The least creepy dude? The one that was actually pretty cool and respectful (That I found out later everyone THOUGHT I was flirting with because I was being friendly?) just said “Damn.” when he found out I was married. It literally flew right over my head. He was embarrassed about it, I completely didn’t even get why he said damn. To me, I was just talking to my bro at work about shit. To him, a girl he thought was flirting with him just laid it out that she was married.

Please. Please. Please. Clarify if a girl is interested in you. If she says she wasn’t flirting? DON’T FUCKING ACT LIKE SHE’S LYING. WHEN YOU DO THAT YOU LITERALLY JUST INSULTED THE FUCKING PERSON WHY WOULD THEY WANT ANYTHING TO DO WITH YOU AFTER THAT?

Just ugh *flips tables* Teach your kids this shit.

#omfg yes at work I used to have this all the time

do not like kenny, am happy about this

I don’t like Kenny either, but I still got sad. Like aw man we had history and it ended so badly! 

But like when even the guy you shot is saying you made the right call about it then I don’t think you have to feel too guilty…
