Why did I get embarrassed...when just now at the butchers I asked the cute butcher in his early 20's for "6 THICK sausages"?

It was the same guy  I asked last week for the chicken and bacon sausage rolls. They were in the corner of the display cabinet and he said "You make it hard for me"

I blushed.


Can this go on?  I am going weak at the knees.

EFC (again!)

There must be a Butcher's School for Sexual Innuendo because they all seem to do this. Great legs, nice racks etc.

North East in Perth isn't specific enough! Suburb?

My husband and he burst out laughing.

OH yes, I never really thought about it but I always get a bit nervous when I go to the butchers, they are always super friendly in an embarassing way.  I will be ready for it next time I go and might even ham it up a bit myself.  Boom Boom

a butcher I used to go to asked me out for coffee once, while I had 1 DD in the pram & the other standing beside me.  I dont know if he was just being friendly or thought he was in with a chance!

The butcher I go to now is manned by a lone female, so we have a nice chat while I make my choices & pay, much nicer.

I once embarrassed myself horribly in Bunnings by asking the sales guy "excuse me, do you have itty bitty nuts" i needed small ones for jointing miniature bears ... he cracked up laughing and i slinked off bright red lol so it's not confined to the butchers original.gif

I find most butchers sleazy.  I buy most of my meat in the supermarket to avoid that kind of conversation.

#21 Jenferal

Posted 19 November 2012 - 05:48 PM

I must hang out (or shop at more like) the wrong(or right?) sort of butchers because I've never had a sleazy one sad.gif
It helps one is 2 doors away from where I used to work so I've gotten to know them reasonably well.
