This is What Being Mature Gets You

Back in the good old days when we all lived in caves, fire was the hot new invention (pun totally intended), and the wheel was the next big thing I worked in a video store.

In said video store we had one section that was adult only, if ya know what I mean (and if you don't, seriously you should get out more). Like all the other non adult only sections this section occasionally needed to be straightened up and re-alphabetized. If my boss asked any of the guys to do it they would take forever* and if she asked most of the girls to do it they'd freak out, "Oh my God that's gross!" so you know who she always picked? Lucky lucky me.

Not that there's anything wrong with the genre but I didn't like being in there when customers came in. They always looked speculative in a way that made me....uncomfortable isn't a strong enough word.

*This is not to imply that all guys are obsessed with porn but these guys were mostly just 18 so it was forbidden fruit.

Long ago, my girlfriends and I used to go to the local sex shops and stand in the parking lot and pretend to be writing down license plate numbers.
Surprisingly few men would take umbrage, they'd mostly just scamper to their cars with their heads down.
We were very bored, apparently.

Leanne-That is hillarious. And it sounds like fun too.
