my butt looks good today.

30 May

The following conversation happened at my workplace this morning at 9:00 AM:

Me: Good morning.

Front desk guard: Morning young lady, where have you been, on vacation?

Me: No, I’ve just been coming in the back door.

Random guy standing off to the side: Girl, look at that ass. That ASS. Tell me the secret cause I wanna come in the back door, too.

Me (in my head): Ugh, dickhead. I guess I set myself up for that one. I mean, why can’t dudes wait until 10 or something? I love men, but they really piss me off sometimes. Then again… I have been going to zumba and running 3-4 miles a day and it does look pretty good, so I don’t blame him. Ass, today we win, today we are victorious.

    You have to admit, though, that is one funny comment.

    • La La May 30, 2012 at 1:17 pm #

      Haha, I admit it was very funny. I threw that one right to him and he knocked it out of the park.

    I got the same comment…from the same guy…

    • La La May 30, 2012 at 10:54 am #

      Congrats? Our asses can be victorious together.

      • chrisdevoss May 30, 2012 at 3:23 pm #

        Makes us butt buddies…um…yeah…

    A comment like that would make me release my taser. Then again, its batteries are probably long dead, as are any compliments on my ass.

    • La La May 30, 2012 at 12:14 pm #

      You have a taser? I so want one. I would walk around getting every guy I could.

  4. Trip X May 30, 2012 at 11:43 am #

    I would definitely think that comment, but the more mature wiser part of me wouldn’t allow me to say it. Ahh, who am I kidding. My mouth overrides my brain constantly and I’m sure you do have a gorgeous posterior!

    • La La May 30, 2012 at 1:13 pm #

      It’s a cute posterior. ;-)

      • Trip X May 30, 2012 at 1:37 pm #

        any documented proof of this cuteness? ;)

        • La La May 30, 2012 at 1:42 pm #

          Haha, I’m on to you. ;-)

          • Trip X May 30, 2012 at 1:44 pm #

            darn! can’t blame a guy for trying….you know us mid-Atlantic Delawareans, always on the look out for a fine butt. :)

            • La La May 30, 2012 at 1:48 pm #

              what a fine east coast representative.

  5. Elliot May 30, 2012 at 12:07 pm #

    Compliments aside, what sort of place do you work in where someone is aloud to say that out loud? It may just be me but that doesn’t sound like something you can get away with in many work places these days. That said, your workouts must be working.

    • La La May 30, 2012 at 1:11 pm #

      Aw Elliot, you care! I work at an institute that does AIDS research. Scientists sometimes don’t understand social norms.

      • Elliot May 30, 2012 at 1:57 pm #

        Hey you are working at a place that does good things, not a place that just makes money for some corporate bigwig who thinks he is taxed too highly. – That scientist probably spends too much time at home looking at porn and shouting the same thing at the screen, not realising in the real world, a bit of subtlety is often required.

        I shall also use this space to apologise for “aloud” when I meant “allowed”, I was not aiming for some dodgy sounding pun there.

        • La La May 30, 2012 at 2:02 pm #

          Haha it’s okay, I figured as much. And thank you ♥

  6. Sword-chinned bitch May 30, 2012 at 12:46 pm #

    Obnoxious comment aside — I would have secretly enjoyed the hell out of it! At you know your Zumba and running are not for nothing!

    • La La May 30, 2012 at 1:11 pm #

      hahaha, glad I am not alone!

    Again, I know you herald from the land of free speech, and all, but you couldn’t get away with making smutty comments like that over here without some sort of workplace tribunal! That doesn’t mean that we’re not thinking it, and much more, though…

    • La La May 30, 2012 at 1:41 pm #

      Sigh. I miss England!

  9. Simon May 30, 2012 at 2:29 pm #

    wouldn’t it be great if just for one day all of that flipped and guys had to put up with (got to enjoy) commentary like that?

    • La La May 30, 2012 at 2:30 pm #

      Yes, I would say it though and then whip out my taser (no, not that taser).

      • Simon May 30, 2012 at 2:40 pm #

        well that would kind of take the fun out of my magic parallel universe day.

        • La La May 30, 2012 at 2:45 pm #

          but La La superhero taser day sounds so fun.

  10. Maggie O'C May 30, 2012 at 2:54 pm #

    I need some help coach because NO one ever looks at my ass and wants anything to do with it. I don’t even think they can see it. but I don’t want to have to move much. I don’t know why you’re working out so much, it’s not like us.

    • La La May 30, 2012 at 7:03 pm #

      It’s really not, is it? I feel pretty weird about it.

  11. Carolina Courtland May 30, 2012 at 3:27 pm #

    Having a good ass is better than any accessory. Who needs a sparkly bracelet when you butt cheeks so firm you can bounce a quarter off them?

    • La La May 30, 2012 at 7:02 pm #

      You speak nothing but truth.

  12. Kathy V. May 30, 2012 at 3:30 pm #

    I would have punched the guy’s teeth out. But at the same time, I realize that the last time anyone commented on my ass was when I was walking in front of a bunch of high school girls who thought they were SUPER funny by yelling about how flat it is. So maybe I would have punched him, while being secretly gratified. Or something like that.

    • La La May 30, 2012 at 6:30 pm #

      Exactly! That’s how I felt. So weird…

  13. RFL May 30, 2012 at 3:34 pm #

    Haha! Just coming in the back door…glad your hard work is paying off; even if it results in gross compliments.

  14. Kourtney Heintz May 30, 2012 at 4:03 pm #

    Ew to the comment. I’m sure your butt looks gorgeous but I’m wondering what women respond positively to that kind of comment from a stranger. Like what did he think saying that would accomplish?

    • La La May 30, 2012 at 6:30 pm #

      This, my friend, will always be a mystery to me.

  15. becca3416 May 30, 2012 at 5:20 pm #

    I feel ya, I work in a construction shop full of men and have a long jaunt to my office each morning. Maybe I should start coming in the side door. I’d like to see them twist that one around on me. On second thought, maybe I’ll just keep pretending they aren’t all zoned in on my ass. (Not bragging on my ass, these guys would gawk at a female rhino as long as she had the correct parts). Yuck.

    • La La May 30, 2012 at 6:29 pm #

      Hahaha side door! I love it. And I am sure you have a lovely bottom worth bragging about.

  16. sosassyandsingle May 31, 2012 at 8:34 am #

    that’s the type of comment u scowl at, but inside smile because you have worked hard for it lol!

  17. The Hook May 31, 2012 at 1:49 pm #

    I blame him! Who says that to a stranger?
    I’m sure your butt rocks, but COME ON!
    You deserve better…

    Ive nominated you for the reader appreciation award,

  19. bowzerscastle June 1, 2012 at 12:48 pm #

    in my profession, i can do “front end development” or “back end development”, one time i said to a potential employer – “id really like to master the back end”… the people around us laughed and made fun of me. but dammit, its the truth!

    • La La June 1, 2012 at 12:55 pm #

      HAHA that is SO funny!

  20. Debra Colby-Conklin June 5, 2012 at 10:13 am #

    Hey, if I worked my ass off to get my ass into fine shape…somebody better be noticing it.
