This happened to me not too long ago. To sum it up, there are alot of "manly" guys where I work and there's a rumor that I'm gay (because I don't hunt, wear camouflage, eat meat in large quantities, talk about "getting laid"; you know-"manly things". Also, I'm not knocking gay people, a person's sexual orientation is irrelevant to me - for the record). One day, in the plant, some of them were talking amongst themselves and I heard the comment "He's looking at that guys butt". About ten years ago, I would've gotten angry and there would've been a confrontation, now, I think it's funny, lol .
It's a big soap opera where I work and everyone talks about everyone else. Everyone, I think, knows it. I also get along with everyone there. I simply got a kick out of what was said . I have other examples (concerning myself) but will talk about it later.
I think it's funny when others are talking about me and they have no idea that I'm in "the other room"
Who else has something to add to this?
Good day to all
