On today's episode of 'None of your business that's why'
Went to see Assassins Creed. Sorry to everyone who hated it but I really enjoyed it. I haven’t played the games though so that could be part of it.
But yes movie ends and the lights don’t come on and the guy beside me leans over right in my bubble to comment on it and ask what I thought. So I make conversation while I obviously gather my things but he doesn’t move out if by way until the lights come on.
I deliberately leave a person ahead of me but he slows down. And then asks “why are you at a movie by yourself?” And I say that I often go by myself and oh there’s the bathrooms byeee.
Take my fine time. Put my headphones on. Come out and give a hasty look around. He’s gone.
No he isn’t.
He’s hovering by the bar. Talks at me even though I’ve headphones on. So I take them off and I’m down top one word answers now. We get out and he says:
“do you want to go for a drink?”
“No. I’m going home”
“do you want to go to the movies sometime?”
“Why?” At which point I half laugh because you’re a stranger that’s why.
“Because I like going by myself. Bye.” and basically ran across the street because fuck that.
Seriously though? “Why?”
Here’s a why. Why do you feel entitled to my time and my answers. I’m on the bus now heading home.
