My coworker Jess and I went shopping for furniture for our office. We needed two couches, some lamps and a coffee table. We went into each store, explained what we were looking for, and compared quality, price, comfort, colour, etc.
At the third store, Jess mentioned we may want to lead with the fact we're looking for office furniture and not a couple looking for couches as the assumptions seemed to be.
I looked at us -- both tall women. Me with bad hair, no make-up, and an over-sized sweat shirt. Jess with great makeup, shiny hair, and a trim belted coat. It was then I realized the second part to the assumption. I was totally the dude in our lesbian relationship.
Sitting on a either end of the couch, I tried to make Jess hold my hand, but she would have none of it. She figured she could do better.
