    What,the hairy wrists and the fact she was wearing a scarf when it was 80 degrees out didn't send up any red flags.

      Just had a thought,
      MOST of the story is true.
      It wasn't actually a auto parts store.................It was a adult book store and that wasn't an oil filter you put on the counter

        lmao no it is all true, just when she came up behind me and asked if i needed help i never looked at her(witch is rare as i look at who i am talking to most of the time), i also just had to go back there as i forgot the case of oil and wax as i left in a hurried pace, i sent my son in(he knew nothing of this) and then he came back out to the truck and he told me they said i had to go in to get the stuff so they knew it was going to me. bad day times two ......lol it happenes to the best of us right?....................right? awww come on, tell me i'm right.

                  I've only had a couple of awkward moments, but nothing really worth writing about. However, given the flavor of responses to OSC's post, I figured you might get a kick out of an experience my son had.

                  This happened a few years ago when our son was approaching his final year of college. It was summer and one of his requirements for his degree was that he "intern" during the summer, in a serious position with a company that would enhance his degree objectives.

                  Well, his course of study was in Industrial Labor Relations and he landed a job with the area's largest grocery chain, as a Human Resources Assitanct Manager. They were opening a new store in one of the larger cities and he was given the task of interviewing and screening applicants, prior to hiring.

                  Well, as you can imagine, there were hundreds of applicants of all ages, backgrounds, ethinicity, etc. This was a spectacular opportunity, because even an experienced Human Resources person doesn't get to do that many interviews in a normal lifetime.

                  So, the office was setup and the interviews started. Jobs from bagger to janitor, produce specialists, cahiers, bakers, etc. all had positions open and people were literally standing in line. Well, about the third week or so, he was really in the swing of things and up to his eyebrows meeting people, understanding their needs, wants, and sometimes, shortcomings.

                  Then it happened... his next candidate was announced as Ms. (shall we say) "Brown", and he got up to welcome her at the door. Well there she stood, a bit taller, in her heels and wearing a long sundress and a matching wide-brimmed hat, and, like always the fashionable lady, wearing summer gloves.

                  Well, as might be expected by any well educated and mannered, young man, our son took a quick, but hopefully not too obvious, stare and pause and then invited "her" in, "to have a seat", so the interview could start.

                  As one has probably guessed at this point, Ms. Brown was NOT what her name emplied. As our son described, she stood a bit over six foot, and probably hit 220 or so, with most of it being muscle. A dead giveaway was Ms. Browns rather hairy shoulders and a definite "5-o'clock" shadow.

                  At this point he wasn't sure if this was some joke that the staff had sprung on him, or whether it was some kind of "equal employment" test! Whatever, he managed somehow to maintain his composure and proceed with the interview.

                  It turned out that this particular applicant was was legit; and he, I mean she, explained that several months prior, had undergone a sex-change operation. Continueing, the interview it was found that the lady was very sensitive and had suffered on other jobs, but that she really needed the employment and hoped that she wouldn't be otherwise discounted or perhaps worse, placed in a position that would further cause her stress.

                  As you can imagine, I found the story quite funny, but then was most happy that I had never been put into such an awkward moment or had to make such a decision. I'm not exactly sure what the outcome was, but it was my understanding that a position on the late shift was offered.

                  The only conclusion I could possibly reach was that I was very happy that I had been married for a long time... dating in this day and age has got to be a challenge!

                      After reading OSC's and CWS' stories the thought crossed my mind that it was probably experiences like these that inspired the Kinks' song "Lola" and Lou Reed w/ The Velvet Underground's "Take a Walk on the Wild Side".

                      BTW: I just dated myself...

                          Re: ackword moments

                          OSC,

                          I understand about the young lady, and that is very unfortunate for her. All in all though, your description of her gave me the impression that all else was just fine with her. In the long run, she's pretty lucky that she survived. I can understand her sensitivity.

                          But, that did remind me of an experience I had a couple of years ago. I'm part of a team that provides FCC exams in our area for the Amateur Radio Service. I usually handle the phone calls regarding requirements, schedules, etc. Once I received a call from an individual who very much sounded like a woman in her late age. We talked a couple of different times and she said she'd be attending our next test session. I thought the name was a bit odd for a woman of her age, but let it go at that.

                          At the next test session a young man, in his late teens, showed up and the moment he spoke, I realized that I had definitely made a wrong assumption. While the moment wasn't awkward, I learned to never make presume anything from a person's voice.
