It’s Unique To Be Geek

| Working | November 3, 2012

(My coworker has invited me to go out with her and her friends for her birthday. We’re at work discussing the birthday; she’s concerned as I don’t know anybody there.)

Me: “It’s okay, I’m pretty sociable. I get along with just about everyone.”

Coworker: “Yeah, I’m sure you’ll find something to talk about.”

Me: “If any of your friends are into anything geeky, we’ll be fine!”

Coworker: “…I don’t really have any geeky friends.”

Me: “There has to be someone who’s interested in comics or something. Surely someone likes Iron Man?”

Coworker: “I haven’t seen it.”

Me: “But your friends are mostly boys! Boys like stuff! And everyone has at least ONE geeky friend!”

(She and our other coworker just stare at me pointedly.)

Me: “Oh god, I’M the geeky friend, aren’t I?”

(Both nod.)

Me: *hopefully* “Disney?”

(The other rejected conversation subjects were Pokemon and Harry Potter… I’m doomed!)
