We had just been dismissed from a supervisor meeting when one of my male counterparts approached me.
Him: Do you have a second?
Me: Sure. What’s up?
Him: I need some advice. It’s personal. (His cheeks began to flush a beet red and his speech picked up to nearly warp speed) You’re the only person I feel like I can ask, but if I make you uncomfortable, just tell me to shut up or go away or something.
Me: (beyond curious) Ok. You know I’m pretty blunt, I’ll tell you if I’m offended. Why don’t you just tell me.
Him: (looking down, no eye contact) Gosh, I don’t even know how to say this right, so I’m just going to say it. You seem like someone who knows stuff…
Him: It’s like this. You’ve met my girl. (I nod) See…here’s the problem. How can I get her to orgasm with penetration? I can do it for her every other way, but not that way….
Me: (blinking) Wow. I so didn’t see that one coming. (He began to look concerned) Don’t worry, I’m not offended. I am very curious about why you picked me…
Him: You’re easy to talk to, and you don’t seem easily offended.
I just laughed… And yes, I gave him some advice. In case you’re wondering, he implemented my advice that week, then came back to let me know it worked.
The odd thing is, that wasn’t the first time something like that has happened to me, or the last… In fact, at my very next job, I’d been there for about a month when our temp asked if we could have lunch together.
Temp: So, there was an ulterior motive to my asking you to lunch.
Me: (laughing) You mean it wasn’t my charming personality?
Temp: Well, that’s actually a huge part of it, but I also need some advice, and since it’s personal, I thought it would be best to ask you away from work & off the clock.
Me: Now I’m curious.
Temp: So my boyfriend likes oral sex, and I’d like to make him cum in my mouth, but just when he starts to get really into it I start to gag. Any idea on how I can improve my gag reflex?
Me: Actually, I do…
And yes, I put my Dear Abby hat on and helped the young lady. So, over the years, I’ve realized that for whatever reason, I give off this “very comfortable in my sexuality” vibe. It has also become apparent that people feel I’m open to discussing almost anything.
I thing everyone has a subject that people feel comfortable approaching them about, be it for advice or just to talk… So, what subject do people come to you for?
In other, unrelated topics…I’d posted the below picture on Facebook saying that I was going to reward my hour long workout by working by the pool, writing…
Hubby, who was trapped at his office job commented with “smh”.
When he got home he mentioned that he almost made a comment about me “working” by the pool (yes, he used air quotes out of jealousy)….but settled on “shaking my head”.
I looked at him and said, “OH! that’s what that means?”
He gave me a weird look and said, “Yeah. What did you think it meant?”
I giggled. “I’ve always thought it meant suck me hard.”
He just shook his head, walked away & said, “perv.”
