I am going to tell you this story before I start digging a hole in the ground to hide in for the next week or so.

Life is filled with joy and it is filled with lots of humiliation.

This is a story of the latter.

This morning, I was hunting for some change. And finally I pinned down the apartment manager only to find out that he had no change. In total frustration, I started to spew. And the apartment manager started to spew back.

And then I heard and saw someone walk out the front door away from the office doors. I was curious because I thought I saw someone leaving that I had not seen in probably well over a year, possibly two by now.

I asked the apartment manager if I just saw who I thought I saw and his answer was “Probably.”

I tore out of his office like a lightning bolt, hoping that the person I was chasing was in no hurry to get into their vehicle and leave.

When I got outside, I saw her by the gates and I waited for a second before whistling at her.

And yeah I know, someone’s going to have a problem with that. But this is someone I’ve known for years and years and years and I know that once she saw that it was me that was whistling, she’d just giggle it off.

But whistled LOUD and PROUD. I was definitely making a bold statement to get her attention.

Then I waited for her to turn around and look in my direction.

IT WAS THE WRONG WOMAN!!!!!! 

Ohhh, what have I done? What have I done? The wave of shock and humiliation warmed over me like a cloud of death.

The strange woman looked in my direction and then proceeded on her way. She did nothing, she said nothing. And that was the end of it as I scrambled to turn around and go back inside of the office building.

She could have yelled and screamed and chewed me out. And I would have deserved every last bit of it, but she went away.

And now I sit here and think of all the different times I saw someone with long hair flowing down their back, only to find out that it was man. And that has happened more times than I want to admit.

Similar situation here.

I know that I am not the only one that has gone through this, but it is still humiliating nonetheless.

My Monday is starting out to be embarrassing. How’s your Monday????

So some of you are going to shake your head. Others are probably offer some advice for next time. And the REST of you are just going to laugh, either a little or a lot.

The path starts out in red and ends up in rainbow.

If I am catching a bus to return home, I have a certain path that I take to get to the nearest bus stop in the downtown area.

The thing to point out is that FOURTH STREET is known for it being the district where all the gay bars are at. But I only need to go along 4th Street for two blocks before hitting the intersection which is the actual bus stop.

So I went on my usual path. As I said, I figured out why much of downtown was closed off. The very hard way.

There were so many people crowding both sides of the sidewalks along 4th Street, and so I had to go into the middle of the street, hoping that I would not get hit by a car or arrested.

But what I would end up doing is finding myself going down the middle of the street which actually was a major section of a Gay Pride Parade route.

I would say at least 1,000 people cheered and screamed at me as I attempted to get to the intersection and out of everyone’s path as quickly as possible.¬†Harmless mistake.

OOPS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
