Hanging Out With Old Peps

I have now been at my new job for over a month. For the first while, every week felt like a new job as a floated between different tasks and positions, but for the third week now I have been working as a Physical Therapy Tech (what I really wanted to do in the first place).

Our office specializes in Nero therapy so we see primarily stroke victims and spinal cord injuries (I can tell you some sad stories about them). Strokes most commonly occur in the elderly, which means I get to hang out with a lot of old people/ get hit on by old men all day.

I love to hear their stories about fighting in WWII, or living in Chicago with the Mafia, they say the funniest things! But one old timer in particular keeps me shaking my head. His name is Tom and he thinks that b/c he is old he can get away with saying just about anything. I was warned about him, but didn't find out for myself until after a couple of visits.

Last week he said to me, "You've got nice boobs...their cute. You've got cute boobs."....

I saw him on Monday and then on Tuesday he said to me "Your boobs have gotten bigger."

Seeing that my boobs were becoming a common topic of conversation I choose to wear a must looser shirt today.

And today Tom said, "You know, these exercises are going to be good for my sex life.." he's 82!
