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?

Oh I don't know - soft, versus firm or wait for it - silken?

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 Marchioness Flea

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.
