I've mentioned my coworker R in some of my posts. But I'd say it again, I believe he's gay.
Most times, he'd narrate his "victimized" stories to me even if he knows well that I won't buy his reasons. Often, I'd end up reminding him that he's waaaaay older than me and this makes him upset. One evening, I was able to walk with him to the train station.
R: I've waited for you for one and a half hours and this is all I get?
Me: Did I ask you to wait for me?
We were crossing Makati Avenue and he tells me I might end up like the guy who got headless when crossing Ayala Avenue.
R: Ayala Part II!!!
ME: (*laughing*) Tange (read: ta-nge, the friendliest way to say moron in Filipino)! We're on Makati Avenue. How can it be Ayala Part II?
He was denying that another coworker turned him down.
R: (*with conviction*) I hate petite women!
ME: (*with even greater conviction) Why? You like petite men?
