Atlanta has been called San Francisco of the east for many years. I have a huge gay clientele, I have seen a lot over the years.

The manager was telling us that they had a drain blockage one time, and it was all needles from the veterinarian who did a vaccine clinic. I asked him if he was sure that it wasn't from his customers.

We went into an apartment yesterday and the guy had a calendar right inside the door with a picture of a bunch of guys in bondage outfits. I was going to take a picture when he wasn't looking, but he took it down when we went downstairs to shut the water off.





did he ask if you needed an additional hand to manipulate your pipe?

Agree. Moderation in life.......... Which makes me a hypocrite as I probably work too much but when your preferences overwhelm you as a person it can be a bit much.

OMG no, I was with one of the other guys, luckily, and I appreciated the advance warning not to make much eye contact.

To perpetuate some stereotypes, the guys sometimes don't bother me as much as the lesbians. The guys can be, well, gay, but I've had a few lesbians that were trying to be tougher than any guy, with an attitude to match. No man is going to tell them what needs to be done or how to do it, no matter his training and their lack of.

hell then them lesbians must come in all shapes and forms, that describes customers across the board that are belligerent to anything a trained person says to them...

Back when my wife and I were dating she had a gay coworker who liked to go to party. Great guy! If you weren’t told he was gay, the thought would never cross your mind. Anyway, one night we went to a gay bar called Top of the Park in Hillcrest (the San Francisco of San Diego). I was just out of the Corps, had a bunch of tattoos and a pierced tongue.

I finally understood how a woman feels at the bar! All I had to do was show my tongue stud or the dragon tattoo’d on my side and I’d have a beer in one hand and a shot in the other.

The group we hung out with were pretty cool! Never “in your face”, yeah, some of them, who were called the “girls”, acted the stereotypical Q word, but good honest guys.

I have less experience with lesbians, mostly just customers. Around here at least it’s a blessing to have a customer who is gay or lesbian! Referral to everyone they know!

Flags don’t bother me. If I was to fly a DTOM flag and be offended by a rainbow flag, I’d be a hypocrite.

A general contractor employee was whitefaced at a condo complex years ago. We were renovating the fully occupied complex and he walked in on 'an ongoing event'. That poor country boy refused to return to that project.

That's hilarious.


I guess now is as good a time as any to mention that every time I catch your picture below your name out of the corner of my eye it looks like a bunch of chrome dildos.

Ah sorry, I'll shut up now.
