People Who Are Oblivious to Stuff

I had a conversation today with a teacher from my school. She's young and relatively new to the school and we met for the first time today. She's an English teacher.

Me: Yeah, I really like Ms. [Whomever] in the English Dept. She's very cool.
Her: Oh, well too bad because she just got married.
Me: That's OK, my wife doesn't really like me to date.
Her: You're married? How old are you?
Me: I'm 30.
Her: Oh...That's not too old.

At which point I cracked up and my buddy cracked up, too. Except this girl didn't seem to understand why what she had just said was really funny. I think she thought she was genuinely comforting me and I should feel OK since I wasn't really that old.

Normally that statement would be something that I would bring up again and again to mock the person, except she didn't even get it. It wasn't even worth it. But it was really funny.

At least she's smart enough to spot that when a guy says about a girl -- any girl -- "She's cool", what he's really saying is, "Ya think I could bang her?"

Men always communicate in subtle messages. We're such rascals!

I'm definitely stealing the line "That's ok, my wife doesn't really like me to date" for future conversations, and not even giving you credit either. So there. Thanks, Chuck.

I'll take credit in my mind.

Like the new pic, Open Bar.

I love clueless people because they make me feel like I may actually be smarter than I am giving myself credit for.
