The Air Hostess

At work today I had a stunning air hostess for BA (British Airways) in her 30s come in.  She was all decked out in her uniform and she was so lovely.  We got talking and she asked me randomly if I knew about SAD, and I said yes. Her husband suffers from it and I look like him 10 years ago.    We ended up about seasonal depression for a little bit while showing her some of the new lines we have in.

She is a fan of pink and we had a few nude pink and bright pink tops in with some nice little details on them.  The two I pointed out in particular she loved and said she would like to try on.  I set her up in the changing room and while she tried one of them on, a nude pink long sleeved number with little jewels around the neck and a clasp at the back.  She came out and showed me then asked a question which I was not expecting.

“Are you straight or gay?”

Really? Do I give off that impression? I may be a little flamboyant, but no, I am not gay.

“No, I am straight”

“Oh, in which case I will refrain from what I was about to say next then” *insert girly giggle*

“Trust me, whatever you have said, I have heard before, I was raised by women”

“Ok then.  I think I might need a nude bra with this, this one shows a little doesn’t it”

*looks at chest* “Hmm, yes.  You’re wearing white and it does show through the knit, probably best to wear a natural bra under that.”

I have so used to being surrounded by women growing up I am so de-sensitised to all of this now.  Don’t get me wrong, she gave me a valid excuse to look at her chest, and I took it, but it was in the name of fashion.

We then processed to discuss the outfit it would go with, and the heels/accessories she could match and would make her husbands jaw drop in it.

She bought that jumper, plus another one and then went on her way, thanking me for my help and for being so generous.  I went relayed this conversation to my colleague and she said.

“I get her asking though.  It took me a few weeks to get a read on you.  It’s because you are so complimentary to both boys and girls it is really hard to tell.  It was only when I caught you checking out a girl one time that I decided you were straight”

I was a little shocked.  Yes, I am complimentary and I appreciate a good looking guy.  Yes, I can talk about girly things easier than I can about manly things.  Yes, I can be a little crazy and come across as a little camp, but make no mistake here.  I love the ladies.

That said there has been a video of me saying a wonderful phrase

I like my women white and my men black.

I have also been known to say:

I like my women like I like my tea; hot, sweet and white.

I really need to stop saying things like that.

  1. I know how you feel. I worked with this girl that I absolutely adored. I was a perfect gentleman. I was polite to her and every else, open doors for her, pulled out her chair from the table so she can sit and I would scoot her in. I wore clothes that were pressed and I took care of myself. So she later told me that she thought that I was gay because I did all of these things and I the fact that I didn’t make a move on her or any other woman that we worked with. It was the way that I was raised, to be a gentleman and I was taking my time to get to know her first. I went on to marry her and we are still married. She doesn’t think that I am gay anymore 🙂

    • That. That right there is one seriously cute story. You really are a gent. I do all of those myself. A girl I saw after years of no contact was visibly shocked when I held open a door for her to walk through. Some believe that chivalry is dead, I am glad to see that it is not.
      Hope you still do all those things now as well! I bet you do, old habits die hard.

      • I still do those things. Like you said “old habits die hard”. It is something that I am happy to do because it makes me feel good and it’s just a nice thing to do. Chivalry is out there, it is just not abundant as it use to be.

      • That is fantastic to hear. It is supposed to be more common over here, but it isn’t. I still make sure my brother or I pull out my mothers chair when we go out, and always stand when a lady leaves the table, or at least the half stand. It is just the way we are raised.

      • I am doing the same with my son. That is the key teaching the young so they can passit on as well.

  2. Lovie, what he says is true. All of it. I did think he was gay because of his good manners and chivalrous ways. Ridiculous I know, but I couldn’t a read on him. He was very much an enigma. He didn’t give himself away easily and was closely guarded, always the observer. Sound familiar?

    Maybe that is why I like you so much. You remind me of B. With that being said, don’t ever change. Look it landed him a really cute blonde haired blue eyed wife who adores him so.


    • Kitten, that is a mighty high compliment you are paying me there, so thank you so much. I can only hope to be quite so lucky as B. I am still young though, I have time to find someone who truly means something to me. Kisses back darling
