I Used to Love Soap Operas
I'm older and wiser now, and love nothing more than asking questions. It's weird to work at a place where nobody likes the boss. Wait, it's not that people don't like him. They actively dislike him. Here's one of the gems that endeared him to the staff (before I got there):
When it's someone's birthday, he takes the firm out to lunch. The firm pays for it. When it was Turkey's birthday, he chose a super-expensive restaurant. Like, the kind of restaurant where you're being modest if you only get three courses. He got all five courses though. The bill came, and he refused to put down the company credit card, saying it was his birthday and he wasn't paying for it. Word in the sunken living room is people were kicking each other under the table freaking out that they each had to plunk down over $100, on a day when they thought they'd be getting a free lunch. People were beyond furious. And he claimed to not understand why.
On Friday, when the WASP and Office Manager were telling me these types of stories, I confessed that the one thing I didn't understand was Turkey's gay lovah. I mean, he's kind of hot, he's French, he dresses well, he's younger. He could do better. Why was his married to this Turkey?
So glad you asked! Gay lovah was a counter person at Bloomingdales for years, it seems. Years! Until he got fired for stealing. Then Turkey got him a job at an upscale furniture showroom through a client from the firm. How'd they meet, you ask? Lucky for you, I asked too! Well. Gay Lovah was married before Turkey. To a WOMAN. To which my jaw dropped, and I asked Office Manager, "Turkey TURNED Gay Lovah?!" She laughed. Apparently, they both went on some vacation for boy toys to meet sugar daddies, and that's how they wound up together. Gay Lovah has a sweet deal. I mean, aside from having to live with the Turkey, and you know, be his gay lovah. Not that I think gay love is gross, but that Turkey himself is quite gross, in both looks and personality.
Office Manager also shared that Gay Lovah contributes about $600 a month towards their household. They have a home worth over a million dollars. Turkey has this law firm. The two of them go on fancy trips two to four times a year. They eat out often, see shows often, go to the opera. Sweet deal. Except for the Turkey part. Now if Gay Lovah had hooked up with the Hot Gay Subtenant I'd be in awe of that, because Hot Gay Subtenant is outrageously hot and also totally helpful and pleasant to be around.
So that's the story of how the Turkey got his Gay Lovah husband. And how did you meet YOUR husband?
