they pay to kiss your feet

since there's no one else around, we let our hair grow long and forget all we used to know. then our skin gets thicker from living out in the snow.

and then she learned two valuable lessons

Lesson Number One : Never, and I repeat, NEVER wear a skirt to the chiropracter.

Lesson Number Two: Never, and I repeat, NEVER get on the same elevator with that man again unless you want a repeat of this scenerio:

Jessi is on the elevator. It is going down. It stops on the third floor and an oldish man gets on. He pushes floor number 5 and then notices the elevator is going down. "S**T," he says. "Sorry, we're going down," Jessi replies.

Once on floor number one, the doors open, and Jessi gets out. Whilst this is happening, oldish man proclaims, "It was worth it since I got to ride down with you." He says this in a nasty tone, too. One that no one should be able to get away with. One that no one should have to listen to. One that sent yucky chills down Jessi's spine.

Jessi grunts and walks off, quickly.

    What a schmuck! Don't you wish you'd had something scathing to say? Darn those clever comments that follow after you're hours departed from the incident. Like:

    "I would never dream of going down on anything with you, you filthy, lecherous man."


    "Like anyone like me would ever look twice at someone like you."

    Okay, nasty, I know. And you're probably much too good-hearted to say such things. But still, that man needs to be put in his place!

    At the very least, you should have said, "EW! That was incredibly disgusting and inappropriate!" Then at least he would have felt embarrassed. One time I was waiting for the bus and an old guy on a bike stopped in front of me and said," I'm taking a picture of you in my mind to save for later." I just yelled "Omigod! Ew!" as he rode away. Another guy at the stop asked what he had said and offered to take care of it, but it was just an old dirty guy on a bike--harmless. Still ruined my day.

    Maybe you should have said "Well, God bless you, sir. Hope your day continues to improve!" (Thinking: Mine can only get better after this event! and saying a little prayer for him.) (Which doesn't include, L-rd let him be hit by a bus. ;)
