I had a crush on a girl who was a lesbian. She's actually the reason I have the job I have right now.
I was walking around in Berkeley looking for work and I passed by Ben & Jerry's. Wondering if they were hiring, I walked in and there behind the counter was an incredibly cute girl. I walked up and asked for a job but they weren't hiring. I made some jokes and left, but she was on my mind like nothin' else so I went back about 30 minutes later "to get some ice cream." We talked a little and I would have asked her out right there except a family walked in and I lost my nerve.
Well I'd go in every once and again in hopes of seeing her and one day, I go in and she asks if I was still looking for a job! So I say yes and she gives me the application and we talk a bit and she's going down to LA for school in two weeks. So I'm like, Ok, mental note, ask her out to lunch within the next two weeks.
Well I never got my chance. I'd go back looking for her and she was never around. I was sad, here I'd finally found a girl I was interested in and she seemed interested back and it was like God was keeping me from being with her. My friends told me it was for the better, she was leaving for LA after all, and fate was likely saving anything between us for when she moved back the next summer. how wrong they were...
She left and I got the job... maybe a week in I was working with my assistant manager and her friend. I said something about how I'd had a crush on this girl I met who actually helped me get the job, and holy shit. They went OFF on me. "HA HA you're such a retard she was a LESBIAN! How could you not have known? HAHAHAHA!" They made a real production of it. "I LIKE SUCKING DICK! SHE EATS PUSSY! You're such an idiot!"
It was then I knew that fate hadn't been keeping me from asking her out, it had been keeping me from making a total horse's ass of myself. Thank goodness!
So, yeah, there's the full story behind my tag, (it was given to me for simply saying I'd had a crush on a lesbian. Maybe a kind-hearted Mod could link my tag to this story? Lol.) posted here for the first time, for your viewing pleasure.
