my creepy asshole store manager today stepped up the creepy.
He probably said hello and asked me how I was doing about 30 times today. That's not hyperbole. Everytime I looked up, there he was, smiling too big at me, sounding concerned about my mood.
Around one o'clock I was in the office printing some things out real quick when he walked past the door and asked, again, how I was doing. My stock answer to this is a blank faced "fine".
Instead of just carrying on like usual though, this time he stops, comes back to the office door and leans in toward me, saying that I don't smile much.
I said that actually, I smile a lot. But that usually I have to have an actual *reason* to be smiling. (And that's true, for those of you who don't know me in person (most of you)... I smile a LOT)
So he steps further into the office and half closes the door. He's just a foot from me at this point, leaning down over me while I twist halfway around in my chair to look at him, and he asks if he's done anything to upset me or make me angry at him. And I laughed and said no. He asked why that was funny.
I pointed out that this right here was the longest conversation I'd ever had with him and how could someone I had *nothing* to do with make me angry at him?
And, just in case him leaning over me with that weird, leering grin he has wasn't creepy enough, he then decided to put both his hands on my shoulders and give them a little squeeze while he tells me that he's sorry for his lack of individual attention, and he wishes he had more time to invest in each of the team members in the store.
I shrugged and twisted back around, and he left after an uncomfortable silence.

I think he honestly thought I was upset at the lack of one on one time. Becuase later I ended up helping on a project and he talked to me nearly non-stop.
Well, Holly, what do you think? You think this will work? Where should we move this? Does this look alright?

I'm so glad he's leaving in a couple weeks. The *dick* .

Yeah, well, you make him nervous. Can't blame him, really.

All I've ever done is blank stare the guy. Whenever he isn't standing too close to me or making free to touch me, I don't sense that I make a blip on his radar.

How are you doing now?
Holly, look at you. Your stare makes me nervous among with the rest of the tsunami of emotions it floods me with. You underestimate the power of your eyes.

Not so good, really
hehe... but you're Ken and you're allowed to be inapproprately and disproportionately effected by things that you know don't make up the larger part (no pun intended) of my visual impact.

In other words... when I take a close up of my eyes... sure.. you notice my eyes.
But when it's just me standing there... I think one person at work has ever mentioned my eyes. And it was in a "wow, you have freakishly blue eyes" sort of way, not in a "pretty" way.

Now now... at least twice a week you rather violently shake your shoulders and breasts at him, snarling "you LIKE lookin' at lezzies, DON'T ya suckers?!" through clenched teeth.


Oh wait. That's not you. That's Tina tha stah-rippaaaaah.






P.S. I want my pit beef.

Yeah, well, when you've got death-ray eyes, a blank stare can look thoroughly hostile.

I haven't felt the need to just be nice to him. Maybe that's it. He's the store boss and everyone has felt the need to at least pretend they like him.
I just haven't. I don't know him and what little I've seen of him, I don't like.
So I think maybe it's just an ... in comparison... sort of thing.

I DUNNO.
That's not really the point.
He gives me 'man-in-the-park-in-the-trenchcoat" vibes and I he creeps me the fuck out.

But if he said:
"Ever seen a crisp $100 bill?"

Now that would have made it creepy...

he so fancies you
maybe it's because you're an upside down girl?
maybe he's been watching too much daytime tv?

Re: he so fancies you
herm... I'd have to give you a strong maybe on the daytime tv front.
He's much older than me (and much much older than I look, which just makes it more disturbing, ya know), married (the only *other* 'conversation' I've had with him was him asking my middle name becuase his wife is also named Holly), and generally a humorless ass.

heh. I don't think I care why it is that I'm getting the attention. I'd just prefer... not.
