: Hi Alissa,
: You know, there is bigotry and there is stupidity. And sometimes
: can be one and the same. That statement is just so stupid that
: guy may well have just been trying to find a way to tell you how
: pretty he thought your were. Men can be such assholes. I have
: always thought that when someone goes that far out on a limb such
: that...that it is not only fair but your sworn duty and obligation
: cut the limb off...LOL!!! So that is the sort of nut I'd have to
: if he is really that stupid or if that statement was just part of
: act.
: The groping thing you might try to handle with positioning. Like
: always have your legs on the opposite side of the table from the
: free hand. So, like if you are doing a person's right hand and
: are facing you, then have you lap and legs to their right. Always
: the opposite side of their free hand...while you are holding their
: other hand. The other thing is to not get cornered. Don't get a
: seat with your back against the wall...or in anyway positioned that
: the people coming up to you can control how you manuever freely in
: out of the space. Men recognize that very quickly and will take
: advantage of that. And if a guy gropes you, throw him back his
: and stand up and say, "NEXT!!!"
: If I find myself in a situation that each week I show up the same
: things are asked and said, and I find them particularly stupid,
: silly, boring, tiresome...you get the point, I have made me up some
: signs and depending on the setting, I named them "Answer to A**hole
: Question #1" through whatever...or Answer to Silly Question #1
: through whatever. And when someone comes up with the question, I
: up the sign. I don't even respond. Folks soon catch on to the
: that they are saying nothing original. That you have heard it all
: before. In fact, you have heard it all so many times that you have
: prepared a written answer so as not to have to be bothered with the
: same question again. The response to the little signs have always
: come off as funny to me. Because the person always seems surprised
: that they are not the first person in the world with that question
: approach.
: I guess my advice would mostly be that when you are around people
: with a whole lot of liquor in them, you need to prepare yourself to
: manage them. They are not for the most part going to be on good
: behavior. They are out to have some fun...such as it is. So you
: really will need to be managing them, your boundary and putting
: on them at the same time. I don't know how much someone groping
: leg gives a damn about the design you are putting on his arm
: You should just henna something really obscene on his arm with some
: really fast staining henna...LOL!!! There is no sense in being
: serious in a room full of drunks or room full of people drinking
: their way to foolish behavior.
: Sounds like you just need to SCREAM those folks out of your
: There is such a YUCK factor to what you described. Maybe that is
: what you should henna on the major A**holes...the "Mr Yuck"
: sign...LOL!!!
: Feel better.
