Ever been overtly hit on by the same sex in public?

Happened to me today. I have been going to McDonald's last few mornings to get an unsweetened ice tea. Yesterday they were out of ice tea so I said OK and went on my way without it.

Today I go into McDonald's and the manager sees me approaching the counter and says to me in front of a room full of customers, that I have the nicest blue eyes he has ever seen.

I say thank my mother, I got them from her ...

He says we have unsweetened ice tea today ...

I say, that's good, I didn't get any yesterday ...

He then says, well it's always good to get it as much as you can ...

As a matter a fact the more you get it, the better off you are, that's how I feel he said ...

He then says, we are still talking about ice tea aren't we?

I say, I am ...

He says, OK, I was just checking ...

By this time, people are staring at him/me ...

He then hands me my ice tea and a bag of food which I didn't order and says, this is on the house and then says he put two extra hash browns in there for me and winks at me ...

I try to refuse the food, since I do low carb and would never eat a sausage McMuffin and two hash browns, but he says no, no, it's on the house ...

The receptionist at my doctors, got a free breakfast today ... :smilewide:

Has anything like this happened to you? If so what did you do or not do?

Yep.

I've had it happen multiple times. (I'll not go into detail unless someone wants me to)

I usually just shrug it off. (I'm flattered, LOL, but that's not me)

We need GM to release some new cars....STAT.

Wow. This is what we've degenerated to for thread topics.

It's happened. I just say "thank you" and, to myself, I'm thinking "free food, free food." Lesbians have never given me free food. Those rags. :lol:

I was looking for a new pair of jeans at the Levi's store the other day...This extremely flamboyant Mexican guy who went by the name of "angel" (which he made sure I knew on a couple different occasions) was consistently buzzing around me, and came by the dressing room a number of times to ask me if I needed any assistance.

On an unrelated note, I hate clothes shopping, and I hate the mall. I didn't end up buying anything. I'll probably just order clothes online...but I can't even seem to be able to tolerate that.

:gay: :rotflmao:

I can actually relate, I am happily married and have a friend / coworker who I met the first time back in 1989 that we both interviewed for the same job. He used to politly hit on me all the time until he met my wife and relized that some of us are actually very straight nice guys.

Now when we get together and go out to a movie or dinner and such, his friends depending on what they say get a version of this:

He is married and straight, If and when he becomes available he is mine. :lol:

In regards to my response, I just thank them for their interest and compliments, but not interested and leave it at that. 8)

Oh yea, it happens every so often. I've had waiters be a little too attentive for my liking, and by that I mean attentive to ME and not to the other members of my party. It's kinda awkward, so I try to ignore it and keep my replies terse and to the point.

Back in HS, an alumnus of my HS was working at the Starbucks that just opened across the street. Flamboyant as hell, but he seemed cool so I would engage in small talk just like I did with the other employees and manager there--I've always noticed that the friendly "regulars" get comped drinks all the time, and I'm fairly friendly and polite with people I see often, so I've always figured win-win, right? But I started noticing that while I would occasionally get a comped drink from any of the employees or the manager, this guy would ALWAYS comp me whenever I came in. Free is free, so I didn't say anything, but also made sure I wasn't being []too[/i] friendly because I didn't want to misrepresent myself. Eventually he got the idea, I think, because then he started being rude and hostile whenever I came in, to the point that the other employees would be like "MAX?!? What was THAT?!" Really don't like it when things degenerate into pettiness like that, but whatever. I enjoyed the freebies while they lasted.

This past summer at a different Starbucks back in IN, another barista I suspected might be gay started being a little overly inquiring about my well-being--like not just "Hey, how's it going?" but more like "So how's your day been? ...Really? Just 'Good'? Is something wrong?" And I'm sorry, but that creeps me out, and kinda violates employee/customer boundaries IMO, so I just reply with a "No...I'm...fine?" and look kinda confused, and then do not engage in any small talk. AWKWARD.

Finally, at yet another Starbucks (I know, right?), some dude there was obviously checking me out/hitting on me because repeatedly he'd get this creepy (to me) smile when he'd ask me what I'm ordering...and then I'd have to repeat my order EVERY TIME because "Sorry, what was that again?" And any polite small talk would get replies from him of "Ohhh...you DO?" or "Ohhh...REALLY?" said with kind of a suggestive tone. Seriously...kinda awkward. As was the look on his face when I showed up there once with another one of my very straight friends--kinda like a "Oh uh huh I know" wink wink, nudge nudge kind of look. No. He doesn't know, but I know his gaydar is seriously in need of the latest software patch.

But like FOG, I just take it as a compliment...how else could I possibly take it? Do I sometimes go out of my way to a different Starbucks if I'm in a bad mood and don't feel like dealing with that? Honestly, yeah. But most of the time it doesn't really faze me. It is what it is. Especially since I've been in CA for 5 years, I know that my style and speech is more reflective of California than Indiana now, and when I'm back in Indy, I don't get as many "Wow, that's a really cool ___," but more of the "Well, that's a very interesting ___...sure is different to say the least." And then my accent. But again, whatever--it is what it is, and I take it as a compliment, and know that some of it is probably because I stand out a little bit more in Indy than I used to.

Hundreds of times.

But even when you exclude the posters on C&G, yeah, I've been hit on by guys a few times. It's really no big deal, unless you're afraid your own latent homosexuality is going to be revealed by another guy's advances.

I've never really been hit on by anyone in public. Or anywhere.
