Geoff, the gents. The loos, now, please.
It’s Greg. Why?
Oh, I don’t know. Maybe it’s your turn.

See, to me he’s just saying “Bedroom! Now! It’s THAT way!” ;)


  •  (I work the floor at an independently-owned menswear store. The owner, my boss, spends a lot of time at the shop, and tries to keep prices as low as possible to help our city’s large homeless population get good job interview clothes. A clearly homeless man is wandering around the store. The other patrons are giving him looks.)
  • Customer:  “Excuse me, sir?”
  • Me:  “Yes, ma’am?”
  • Customer:  “I think you may want to call security. That… bum over there, he keeps feeling the suits and muttering to himself. I’m just sure he’s planning to steal one.”
  • Me:  “Well, ma’am, I think that’s quite unlikely.”
  • Customer:  “Oh, come on, you know how they are! I mean, I’d keep an eye on him even if he wasn’t homeless!”
  •  (The homeless man in question happens to be Hispanic.)
  • Me:  “We don’t discriminate here, ma’am.”
  • Customer:  “Well, I’m sure the owner would want to hear about this!”
  •  (I give in and call him over. The customer explains her concerns. As a black man, my boss isn’t happy with her racism, but agrees to talk to the homeless man.)
  • Owner:  “Excuse me, sir, are you finding what you need?”
  • Homeless Man:  “Well, not really. I’m hoping for something versatile in a dark or navy wool, but most of the options in my size are cut American style instead of European, which fits me a little better. Not to mention they’re all pinstriped, which I really don’t have the build for, you know?”
  • Owner:  “I… yes, I understand. I think we may have some options over here, if you’ll follow me. How did you know all that?”
  • Homeless Man:  “Back before I lost my job, I used to be really into this stuff. I’m not looking for anything fancy, just something I can use to look good for a job interview later today.”
  •  (My boss helps him find something he likes, and comes to the counter with him. The suit is priced at $87.)
  • Homeless Man:  *digging in his pockets* “Hang on, I think I’ve got enough.”
  • Owner:  *to me* “Take my card. I’m buying it for him.” *to the homeless man* “Here. The suit’s yours, on one condition. After your interview today, you come back and apply for a job here too. Got it?”
  • Homeless Man:  “I… oh my God, thank you. Thank you so much.”
  •  (Two years later, that formerly-homeless man is my manager, and has a little girl with his new wife—the owner’s sister.)

alleigence:

the thing that i’ve learned which watching sheo interviews is that you have to watch both of them closely because chances are while one of them is actually answering the question that the reporter asked, the other one is doing something completely idiotic

a guy on the train just finished his book and started a new one immediately i think that is the sexiest thing i’ve ever seen


“You’re still trying to protect me. Real or not real,” he whispers.
"Real," I answer. "Because that’s what you and I do, protect each other.”

But I will find new habits, new thoughts, new rules. I will become something else.

Fire is the element of power. The people of the Fire Nation have desire and will, and the energy and drive to achieve what they want.

Earth is the element of substance. The people of the Earth Kingdom are diverse and strong. They are persistent and enduring.

Air is the element of freedom. The Air Nomads detached themselves from worldly concerns, and they found peace and freedom. And they apparently had great senses of humor.

Water is the element of change. The people of the Water Tribes are capable of adapting to many things. They have a sense of community and love that holds them together through anything.

It is important to draw wisdom from different places. If you take it from only one place it become rigid and stale. Understanding others, the other elements, the other nations, will help you become whole. It is the combination of the four elements in one person that makes the Avatar so powerful. But it can make you more powerful too.

i fucking hate tumblr so much seriously

you guys are always like “i want equality!” except gay people are better than straight people and women are better than men and poc are better than white people and trans people are better than cis people

if you claim you want equality, but put someone down because they’re privileged, that doesn’t make you an advocate for equality, it makes you an asshole
