Eating For Two, Table For One

Steak, potato and salad. Grill up some onions and mushrooms to top it, if you want. The company's paying for his food anyway, so eat the steak!

A curmudgeon's reputation for malevolence is undeserved. They're neither warped nor evil at heart. They don't hate mankind, just mankind's absurdities. They're just as sensitive and soft-hearted as the next guy, but they hide their vulnerability beneath a crust of misanthropy. They ease the pain by turning hurt into humor. . . . . . They attack maudlinism because it devalues genuine sentiment. . . . . . Nature, having failed to equip them with a servicable denial mechanism, has endowed them with astute perception and sly wit. Curmudgeons are mockers and debunkers whose bitterness is a symptom rather than a disease. They can't compromise their standards and can't manage the suspension of disbelief necessary for feigned cheerfulness. Their awareness is a curse. Perhaps curmudgeons have gotten a bad rap in the same way that the messenger is blamed for the message: They have the temerity to comment on the human condition without apology. They not only refuse to applaud mediocrity, they howl it down with morose glee. Their versions of the truth unsettle us, and we hold it against them, even though they soften it with humor.- JON WINOKUR

Glad you came back. Remember, all that most of us know of you is what you write here. So that's all we have to go on. It did seem victim-y to me, but your point is well-taken that you did go ahead and do what you needed to do despite what others might think. I would totally accompany you to the bathroom, Billy. Just remember that us average gender-conforming straight folks aren't ALL bad.

heterosexual tendancies toward victimization....hmmm, I think Billy is the one playing the victim here, thinking someone is always out to get (insert gender appropriate pronoun here. I do not know what you prefer, and I honestly am not trying to offend anyone here.)I don't care what gender you are, what gender you look like, what gender you think you should have been, what gender you really are, or what gender you present to the world, acting like someone is out to get you ALL THE TIME, is not cool. I believe you that you have encountered many intolerant people in your life. I have no doubt that it sucks to be you sometimes. I'll grant you that. HOWEVER, acting as if the entire world is against you might be preventing you from making connections with people who actually like you and value you as a person no matter what gender you are.Awkward teenagers will be awkward teenagers, no matter who is asking for the light. You aren't even 30 yet, are you? They probably weren't nearly as bothered by it as you seem to have been.
