So I am on my first girls only weekend trip ever. My first vacation in at least 6 years. My girlfriends and I are standing in front of my hotel awaiting a shuttle. Remember one of my girlfriends I am with is 57 Scottish, stout, she is on this girlfriend weekend because her husband has emphysema. She is tired. My other girlfriend is 43, she has 5 children. Her youngest has Downs syndrome, and autism........She too is tired. So we are standing in front of the hotel.....With about 30 other people.
Up pulls a Suburban, out pour at least 6 drunk 30 somethings. They are all sunburned and have been out golfing all day. All with sherbert colored golf polos and shorts, and little khaki golf baseball caps. They are all stumbling and loud.
Automatically I know they are trouble, I just know it. I have seen these types in action before.
So I stare ahead expressionless.....and then it happens.
One of these douchebags gets about a foot in front of my face and says... "Your hot"................."for someone almost 40". He stumbles away snickering, with the rest of his douchebag friends.
So I am left standing there shocked. Feeling like I did when I was 14, and boys said mean things. Standing in my t-shirt and blue jeans and tevas, with my Mom haircut. Wondering what I did to deserve to be humiliated in front of my friends and strangers. Wanting to go to my hotel room and cry. We had been in town for an hour. One hour.
"Hello welcome to your vacation, I know you have not had one in at least 6 years. I know you have spent the last 18 months scared to death that your husband might not come home. You have not had painted nails in 5 years. This vacation is a big deal to you. This vacation was supposed to make me feel pretty again. You have been looking forward to it, you are not rich. This is a BIG DEAL. This 2 1/2 days is a luxurious treat, that may not come again for another 6 years."
"You are hot, for someone almost 40"
Douchebags are never alone are they?
