Parents Need Guidance

| Right | February 7, 2013

(A customer comes in with a couple kids, talking on her cell phone.)

Customer: *to me* “Two.” *continues talking on phone*

Me: “For the indoor playground today?”

(The customer nods and holds out $20. I make sure to make eye contact with them, since she’s still talking on her phone)

Me: “Okay, that will be $8.”

(I take the $20 and hand her the change, and since she is clearly distracted, I also make sure to get her a receipt before I put the wristbands on the kids.)

Customer: *to her phone* “She didn’t even tell me how much it was! She just took my money!”

No Hate In This Proposition

| Romantic | May 25, 2012

(My boyfriend and I are a straight couple, at a photo-shoot for a fairly well-known pro-LGBT campaign. In these photos, participants wear white and have duct tape over their mouths to represent LGBT voices being silenced. We are stepping in front of the camera and both have duct tape over our mouths. I walk ahead of him, then turn around when I realize he isn’t following. He’s down on one knee holding a little red leather box with a beautiful pearl ring. I’m completely flabbergasted, clearly tearing up and neither of us are saying a word.)

Gay man standing in line: “Don’t you dare cry! Your mascara will run! Just say yes to your man!”

(I do cry, the mascara does not run, I nod my head yes and about 50 random people we don’t know take pictures with us after.)
