Ridiculousness ensues ...


I am not entirely sure why I have had so many ridiculous conversations lately.

The day following my last ridiculous conversation, I was walking to my office while at work when a co-worker stopped me. "Mindy, I have a question for you."

I stopped to see of what assistance I could be to this young man, foolishly assuming it would have something to do with work.

Foolishly, foolishly, foolishly.

After I gave him my attention he proceeded to me the following question.

"Have you even ever had a boyfriend?"

And that is when I promptly responded with, "Have you even ever had tact?"

JK.

That is not how I responded. It is how I should have responded, but did not. :)

I did laugh though. Right before I promptly reminded him he was at work and that question was anything but professional.

I informed him that is not a question he should ever ask anyone. BUT! If he had to, it could potentially be someone he was dating and he would need to word it as to not doubt her having someone ever wanting to date her. Such as, "So, how many guys have you dated?"

Probably the best part of this entire debacle was the look of complete and shock and horror on my other co-workers' faces that this kid had actually asked that question ... because they have tact. Clearly. :)

But! It is so nice that so many co-workers are so concerned about my personal life, no?

P.S. If you were thinking this sums up my ridiculous conversations as of late ... you would be wrong ... Let's come back tomorrow and review more, shall we? :)

You stories and your blog are my favorite :) Also, I really admire that you were brave enough to open the can of worms on FB. It was very interesting reading all of those comments. My feelings are very similar to yours. I wish we lived closer so we could hang out!

Try being over 30, divorced, and childless in Logan sometime. The questions get even more absurd and unintentionally hurtful.

Are you serious? What a... *********. IDk. Insert a mean but appropriate word. If that even makes sense.

gasp! what nerve. seriously though that is the strangest thing. is it anyone's business? you're your own woman! being married or not married does not define who you are, nor does how many boyfriends you have or haven't had. ughhhh men.

ps. love your blog! full of wit, humor and personality :)

grace & love,
kristyn
