I came out on Facebook last night as bi.
This morning my boyfriend’s brother text him asking if I was kidding.
And that it was awkward for him and his wife as their eleven year old son saw it and then they had to explain what bisexuality was.
Then he insinuated that my friend from/at uni (which really narrows it down) was more than a friend.
And then said I should’ve given the family a heads up before just announcing it all over Facebook.
This is the same brother whose wife thinks their eleven year old son is gay and is basically rapturous about having a gay son because he will obviously stay at home and will always be super close to her, unlike her three other children.
This is why I debated so heavily about posting so openly on Facebook about my sexuality.

Today a lady asked me if she could get an item we had in store for its online price. She had already been told that we couldn’t by another Robin and she was mad, so she asked me since I’m at the customer service desk. I also told her that we couldn’t, but I explained why: our store prices are set as they are because of local demand, as well as taking into account how much it costs to pay for things like electricity, air conditioning, and other things necessary to keep the store itself running. I explained that if we constantly price-matched the website, which has lower prices because it doesn’t need to take those things into account, it would interfere with our ability to keep the store itself open. She then scoffed and said, “That’s the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard.” This is what all customers say when you give them a perfectly reasonable explanation for why you aren’t able to help them. And I do mean -all- customers. I’ve heard this exact line, often in this exact same situation, so many times I can’t even recall them all. The dumbest thing you’ve ever heard is that we’d rather not do something that could potentially put us out of business? Really?
Ugh. I was on the till today for most of my 11 hour shift (don’t ask) and I swear I had one customer every, and I mean EVERY, fifteen minutes telling me how to do my job, or that I was wrong, or that I had put something through incorrectly, or…..yeah….I was about thisclose to smacking a bitch today,
Ugh. So, I just stupidly posted on Facebook about my day as I’m having a really long, knackering week and my mum’s moving house in 2 days, meaning my family home will finally be gone.
And I’m working that day.
So yeah - I was a bit proud of myself for being awake all day from before 6 am and actually getting a ton of stuff done with my day rather than sleeping half the day away and then crying and blue screening for the rest of it.
And someone posted “lol, welcome to being a grown up”.
Thanks. Believe me - I’m aware I’m not the only person who has a lot of shit to do and no time to do it in, but you don’t have to be a dick about someone being proud of themselves for achieving a level of normality you obviously reach every day of your life.
Finally leaving the house…
