Scene 10: Court

So I had subpoenaed this one witness to come to court, but the case gets called off. I pull her into the hallway and explain that she's free to leave. Now this girl had been working as a security guard at a local casino. She wasn't big, but she was masculine and scrappy-looking. She also smelled very strongly of men's cologne. I would have thought the smell was sexy, if it wasn't coming from her. Anyway, here's how the conversation went:

Her: Oh my gosh, you're so tall! You make me feel so short!!
Me: Yeah, that happens.

For some reason I don't get many tall comments at work.. probably because most people know they should show decorum in court.. which just goes to show consciousness of guilt. If approaching tall people weren't rude, people wouldn't feel obliged to censor this behavior in court. Even in my scenario, we had stepped out into the hall before she said anything.

Why you gotta stereotype? I don't KNOW she's a lesbo! All I know is she was tough-looking and smelled like cologne!! Plus, whatever, don't make me call you out on being ashamed to sit next to me in the lesbo-movie, you big gay-hater!!

whatever, don't be mad because i totally saw right through your "oh, i didn't know this was a lesbian movie, let's just see it anyway and sit next to each other and if we happen to make out, then oh well" attempt. you just need to accept the fact that I DON'T LIKE GIRLS! not that there's anything wrong with that...

That's not what you said at the 4th of July party, you clit-teasing whore! No wonder people say you're confused!

Look, if the girl looked like a dyke, I wouldn't hesitate to call her a dyke. (See, e.g., lesbian bull dyke remarks posted previously under "Triple teamed." That chick was sporting a mullet and the whole nine yards!) This girl was just kinda sporty and butchy, not necessarily a bull-dyke!!
