Sorry fellas, but I already have a daddy.

Men are such strange unpredictable creatures. You meet a nice older man. You think, "oh he's nice, he reminds me of my dad." He meets you and thinks, "Oh la la.. wanna get me some of that....(*(*^$@%*()(*&^%$@#$%^&*()(*&^%$#" Who knows what is going through his head....

I'd just like to take this time to say, sorry fellas, but I already have a daddy. Seriously, I'm not talking to you because I am interested in dating you.

Which brings me to my story of the day. Anybody that lives in Chicago and has ever ridden the PACE busses knows that the PACE bus drivers are flat out nicer than the CTA bus drivers! The PACE drivers will stop the bus and let you get on if you run after it waving... the CTA drivers will barely wait for you to get on the bus if you were patiently waiting at the bus stop.

So, I didn't think too much of it when the PACE bus driver started being extra friendly extending our conversations beyond the usual polite "good morning." I did however raise an eyebrow when he gave me the gift of a granola bar the other day.... but I thought... okay maybe he is just "really nice?"

Today, I get on the bus, and he has another granola bar waiting for me. I greet him with my usual, "good morning." He says me, "I think you are cute. I think you are really attractive." [Thoughts inside my head: P A N I C] I smile and say, "thank you." Then walk quickly to the back of the bus while contemplating alternate routes to work.

I don't mean to be harsh. He seems nice enough, and it's not like what he said was creepy or anything... but come on... I already have a daddy - and I am not looking for another father figure in my life.

***I told a friend about this... and here is a little story she told me of her own. She normally encounters men hitting on her quite a bit while dining at the fine sub sandwich shop near her work...but this story takes the cake... a 70 year man told her that he has never been with a white woman and would really like to be with one before he dies. Apparently, he thought "hey there is a pretty young white girl, why I don't I tell her my dreams so she can make them come true." Come on! Sometimes, men can be so rude and flat out stupid!

Did you not learn anything from Halloween 101 ?I was not there to check that granola bar!!!Don't take candy from strangers!!All men have an agenda..that is how they are wired...there is like two exceptions to that rule and You must have got lucky with Ivan and of course S.B.Is NOT a weirdo!!You have to make your self seem unatractive to these drivers??Maybe find a large coat with things hanging off it to put over your work clothes then BAM when at work take it off like a shield if you will!!Banana peels & Big Hair!!!
