Butchers look at me funny.


Has anyone else who has some muscle on them and dresses as CHEAP as I do noticed how butchers give you creepy looks?! It ALWAYS happens to me. I wonder if BUTCHERING is a secretly gay profession? The creepy thing is I dont think GAY has anything to do with it. They stare at me LIKE IM A PIECE OF MEAT?!, and not the way that NON BUTCHERS stare at me LIKE A PIECE OF MEAT either! You actually see them looking at you like youre tied to a hook and theyre trying to figure out the best way to REMOVE YOUR ARM FROM YOUR TORSO! Its VERY CREEPY and it happens EVERY TIME. Sometimes they even slightly tilt there head like youre a christmas tree thats about to be CHOPPED DOWN.... Its sort of murderous but I guess it goes with the job handling pieces of EDIBLE MUSCLE all day must somehow transfer to the real world.... Anyways, just wondering if other people got the same treatment.... Theres actually a cute rican one at my grocery store... I wonder if handling that much FLESH a day sorta gets you OVER the CONCEPT of male and female... I could see how it could.. and I once had a butcher chase me down in the grocery store in my home town so he could talk to me, he was totally some kids dad... That was very creepy.

Actually, I had a gay butcher try to pick me up in West Hollywood about 25 years ago. I could have gotten quite a discount too. Sort of trade, my meat for his meat. Overall, I think I'm glad I went to Safeway instead.

Do you shop in rural Texas at the Sawyer Family Mercantile or something?
