Just for clarification, 1. (So lucky not be working in sweatshops) and 3. (New hot blonde in bikini) are not the same person?

Not the same person. 1 is the same old(er) lady who squees me out by telling me that she "wants my speed," wants to "swim like me when she grows up," and that I'm "her hero." God, maybe I really should move away.

I was wearing my alt.possessive.its.has.no.apostrophe t-shirt (which I must have had for nearly eight years now) on the drive down on Sunday and stopped at the Atascadero In'n'Out, where the young, cute cashier visibly checked it, if not me, out and seemed even to wink before asking me if I were an English major or something. I did what anyone would do: sneered scornfully at her, said "no", and walked out without paying, eventually eating lunch elsewhere.

3. I did you guys proud: the new hot blonde in the bikini was totally chatting me up, but I made like I didn't notice and answered all her questions dispassionately and with just enough detail to be boring.

Way to be Steve.

Dating a hot woman is awful. You'd just end up feeling so jealous and possessive that you would never want to take her out in public, lest another man notice her breasts, which I assume you would call "pert."

43: This is a boring answer, but... "in context." Could just mean you have a great sense of humor such that it is pleasant to work with you. Could mean you make said colleagues heart sing and loins throb. My guess is that the comment would not have given you pause, though, absent some sort of other signals/vibe. Laugh just a little too loud? Stand just a little too close? Stare just a little too long?
