Why Are You Wearing that Stupid Man Suit?

Story Sent in by Jesse:

Tracy wore what looked like a very real fur coat on our date. I'm not a fan of fur, but it wasn't going to be a deal breaker on its own. I didn't say a word about it but at the restaurant, Tracy asked me, "Do you have a problem with fur?"

I said, "I don't wear it, but if it keeps you warm then more power to you."

She said, "It's not so much that, but I like making hippies squirm," she said with a smile. She paused for effect but I had nothing else to say.

I changed the subject to talk about whatever else but she somehow turned it back around to her coat. "The animals aren't in pain," she said, and at first I had no idea what she was talking about. "They sedate them before they kill them."

"Uh... are we still talking about your coat?"

She said, "It's the only thing you've been talking about since we got here."

That was a blatant lie. If either of us had been talking about her coat at all, it was her. Luckily the waitstaff was fast and I didn't have to stick around for too long.

Of note was when she said, "No one would say anything if an animal up and decided to wear a people coat."

I'd likely have a few things to say about it, but it didn't matter as that was our only date.


  1. My favorite jacket is made out of human skin.

  2. Is it your ex boyfriend's skin? Muhahaha!

  3. I went to vegfest and some random woman told me children were evil and animals were gifts of God.Nutcases everywhere.

  4. This story sounds like it deserves a rebuttal.

  5. That women didn't have a brain in her head.
