What's Inside Your Closet?

what's inside your closet?

Two of my coworkers were transferred to the marketing department. Since their team is still sharing the same office with us, everyone could here them answering calls.

R often answers the calls with, "(Insert company name), good morning/afternoon!" And often when he does, he goofs around (which he usually does to grab attention) by making his voice gay. Even more distorted (like a gay wannabe).

To answer company calls, that is certainly a no, no! Most of us get to notice it and laugh. So R, I think, enjoys the attention he's getting.

Yesterday, he did his (supposedly) wannabe act and my boss noticed it and told him to do his job properly. It was said like a joke but I know my boss was just being polite.

Being beside my boss, I told him...

"R, let your hair down."

Then my coworkers laughed. I forgot I was wearing a headset so I said it louder than I intended. R did not make a comment.

It was a joke. But I also meant it. (I'm good at half-meant jokes and always get away with it. *in my 1-800 voice* If you need coaching, e-mail me.)

I started the training with R. When I first saw him, me belonging to a college where about 90% of men are gay for four not-so-straight years, my gaydar went WANG! WANG! WANG! like an ambulance, even without talking to him yet.

If someone's in his denial stage for a veeeery long time now, how would you call him?

I don't know. But he knows I call him the "gay magnet." (I'm beginning to practice self censorship.)

So, what's inside your closet?

I hope you don't have the cabinet of Dr. Caligari.

*brings in a crying wolf*

sniff sniff

On second thought, "The Closet of Dr. Caligari" may become the first ever queer horror film.
