Refuse to be Passive

Dibs!

In Life in General on November 24, 2010 at 3:20 pm

There seem to be an unusual number of single females amongst the administrative staff where I work. Today, we had a young man come in– well, late 20s, you can decide if that’s young or not. He was well dressed, well spoken, had a great smile and stood at about 6’8. After doing a wee bit of eavesdropping I discovered him to be single. Oh the possibilities. Apparently I wasn’t the only one who thought so, as I told my co-worker I should get dibs because I’m the tallest in our office. She scoffed at me and said she should get dibs, as they’re the same age. Then another co-worker walks in and the first thing out of her mouth? “I call dibs.”

“Too late!” I told her. “I’ve already called it. I’m the tallest, therefore he’s mine.” The banter continued, and thankfully it was all in good fun. We don’t have any desperate women in my office, and we all know how to appreciate the times when we can have a bit of fun with the fact we’re all single.

But what do you think? Who trumps? Height, age, or interaction time? I know, the last one, right? But I maintain it’s a good question! When I wear heels I’m 6’2, and there aren’t that many men out there who beat me!

Oh, how entertaining life can be.
