Phone calls from Don Juan....


So....

This is a first.

I was sitting in my office yesterday, working on the retention spreadsheet, when I got a random phone call from one of the new third shift employees.

"Hey, I just wanted to call and say hi."

Um..... What?!?

"Oh, hello."

Awkward silence, I could hear a barking in the background of the phone call and Don Juan was shushing him quietly. Nose Hairs had walked into my office, seen I was on the phone, and waited by the door for me to finish.

This guy literally just called to shoot the shit.... I had to cut the call short.

"I've got a meeting at 9, was there anything you needed me to do for you? I know I don't get the opportunity to touch base with the third shift."

There was nothing he actually needed from me, so the phone call ended.

I looked at Nose Hairs in complete disbelief.

"I have no words. Literally."

"Who was that?"

"One of the new third shift employees. He called to say 'hi'. He actually called just to have random conversation. Who does that??"

"Was it the guy who was hitting on you a few weeks ago?"

I had forgotten all about it, but it was!

"Oh My God! It was!!"

"You know what you're going to have to do, you're going to need to start wearing a wedding ring."

I looked down at my hand and tried to remember a time when I'd actually had a wedding band on that finger.... It's been a long time.

"Yah, that just feels kinda sketchy. And fake."

Not going to lie, it did make me wonder how many women out there do wear a wedding band at times just so they don't have to deal with this kind of stuff.

The bigger question is, why is it always the wrong man who chooses to express an interest in me at inappropriate times?

I may never know...

    I don't think a wedding ring is the answer. I think someone is going to have to have a talk with him and tell him what he did was inappropriate and could cause some problems....like him losing his job.
If anything like that does happen again, I've resolved to have that conversation with him. Awkward or not.

    The only trouble is, he won't see your wedding ring when he phones next time....That's if there is a next time?
I'm hoping there isn't a next time. Fingers crossed!

It's a little bit tougher for me to employ those tactics when I'm at work. LOL They all know I only speak English and for the most part they all know I'm single. I can use the 'I can't date coworkers' excuse though, so, at least I've got that.

    I don't know if the culture is still the same, but when I lived in TC a wedding ring made someone more desirable to the opposite sex. It was the strangest thing. It got to a point where that was the joke with my 1st wife and I... I mean it was funny until she started sleeping around with a different married dude.

    I manage several different FB pages. A few of them belong to women. The stuff that random guys post on these pages are ridiculous, sad and creepy. The worse thing about it is that they don't even realize it! We're not talking dating sites or flirty kind of posts to comment on. These are straight up business pages with a few personal/branding photos. They're trying to be romantic or make some connection that isn't there. I've been there myself, admittedly. I didn't realize it either until I read back over my stuff.

    Now... Calling someone at work to chat, while they are working, is a little different thing. Just called to ask: How you doin'?
Yep, he literally called just to say hi. The whole conversation was just bizarre and awkward, thankfully I don't run into him any time soon. Good grief.

    Interesting that it was Nose Hairs that suggested that. In my head, I am now hearing the Beyonce song "Single Ladies" and have a mental image of Nose Hairs down on one knee in front of you, handing you a tiny box. This is very Freudian in my opinion! lol
Oh my goodness... LOL That made me laugh.

    You could wear a rainbow bracelet, anything that would resemble gay pride, but then you might have some of the women hitting on you.
I think I'd like to avoid the women hitting on me thing, altogether... So, yah, let's skip the rainbow bracelet.

    Well, they say you got to kiss a lot of toads before you kiss a Frogprince. Guess you have to dodge a lot of them too. Here is to that prince coming along soon and you really wanting that first kiss.
Yes, here's to the Frog Prince coming along soon, I'd like that first kiss.

    He is thrilled shift so you can only see him after work.

    Now who said she need to relax and forget about work and life for awhile. Xoxoxoxo
You have an active imagination!! LOL I don't see this happening any time soon...

    I wore my wedding band for years after the papers came in - because I liked it and gold suited me.
    Until that day when I was talking with a nice woman, we were getting along real fine, and then SHE noticed it... and cut our convo off. I didn't have the time to explain anything.
    But I took that ring off.

    It can work both ways. 😮❗❗😊
Yah, I didn't feel flattered. More like preyed upon....

    One day hopefully the right man will come along at an appropriate (or even inappropriate) time.
Maybe one day... I'm a little worried that I may have closed myself off and won't recognize it when or if it happens.

The only trouble is, he won't see your wedding ring when he phones next time....That's if there is a next time?

If you see me in the real world, come say "Hi Justskin."

I always behave. Preferably not well.
