okay, watch this immediately.
overheard on the bus: "manchester is, like, the cleveland of england."
today i shared the story about the guy who called me fat on the bus, and a friend who knows more than i do about such things goes, "B. that was supposed to be a compliment. he liked you, and that was his come-on." and i was also, apparently, being totally culturally insensitive in assuming that everyone has the same, you know, ring code that i do. for some people, every ring is meaningful...
gahhh. of course, he didn't say that i was being culturally insensitive. but it's like - i hate it when it turns out that i'm so much less open-minded and accepting than i thought.
