It gets me excited, they all have such strong hands and the young ones are so darn friendly. Even the older guy who owns the shop is such a big "Padrone" that I can't help but get excited talking with him!
I have a thing for butchers
amazing pieces of MEAT
r1=old Jewish lady, circa 1952.
always worked for me with Sam
I have a secret fetish for hot cab drivers.
They are all so butch, it scares me!
"The heart wants what it wants", R4? Ain't it more like the crotch wants what the crotch wants?
They're usually covered in blood. You're a freak, OP.
not mine! they are all clean as a whistle!
I'm putting on weight buying muffins just to get an opportunity to flirt with the hot Turkish muffin guy.
Me "Hmmm. not sure what I want"
Him "Yesterday we have a corn. Day before we have a blueberry. Day before that we have a cranberry. How about today we have a date." *wink wink*
It's embarrassing how I throw myself at the butchers.
And they're all CUT!!!!
When I worked at a supermarket the meat department guys were usually the assholes who always took their breaks together and ogled the cashiers passing by as if it were a strange requirement, but the guys in the produce department were the ones who would fuck anything. Strangely enough, guys in the bakery department always seemed to be sullen ex-jailbirds or something. So, OP, maybe you might try ringing the buzzer for help making your "meat purchase"--tell the butcher you can't tell a pork loin from a lamb shank and you desperately need his help, then after he helps you give him a nice pinch on his ass.
doesn't padrone mean mistress in italian
If you love him so much why don't you marry him?
R12, my butcher works in a butcher shop, no grocery stores here.
I used to go to an okay-ish felafel place just for the incredibly beautiful Lebanese guy who worked behind the counter. He wasn't particularly happy in the U.S. and wanted to go back to Lebanon. I don't know where he went to when he left the job, but I stopped eating there.
Josh, you may claim this as your personal experience in your next book.
I always had you pegged as going for Samantha, R3.
It's those pink cabinet lights, Miss Daisy. They maake even rancid fillet look delectable.
At Straub's in the Central West End in St. Louis there was a butcher who had it all - butch, young, friendly, straight (married - the other butchers would talk about it), sexy and muscular.
He'd look you straight in the eyes with his own baby blues sparkling and say, "Can I get you anything else? You sure? We've got some great beef available."
The gays would line up. We gays, I should say.
R19 knows what I am talking about
I went in today for the same cuts as last week and the same cute butcher guy came to me and sort of fake-rolled his eyes and asked, "you just like coming here in general or is it me? " I wanted to get on my knees at that point right then! Then his boss walked up and asked, "is this guy bothering you, mister?" and answered no. But the butcher asked again, "so what's the answer?" and I replied, " we wil have to work on it".
I'm just all aflutter about the hot butcher guy!
There's nothing wrong with flirting with your butcher.
Why would you have to specify "to go"?
Is there a chance he thinks you want to eat it right there on the spot?
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
The old site will remain around while things settle down but will go away fairly soon as we consolidate everything to the one "official" site.
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
